Why You Shouldn’t Miss This

The most famous city in the Tuscany region of Italy, Pisa lies on both sides of the Arno, close to where it meets the Ligurian Sea. Although it is best known for the Leaning Tower, the city is peppered with medieval buildings and churches that are filled with rich history and are incredible architectural achievements in themselves.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is a bell tower that is freestanding in the cathedral of Pisa. Called the ‘Campanile’ in Italian, it is famous for the unintentional tilt that is characteristic of the structure. The tilt started in the 12th century, during its construction, due to insufficient strength in the ground below the foundation. The ground was far too soft on one side to support the tower's entire weight. The tilt of the tower increased gradually with time until some restoration was performed. The Leaning Tower of Pisa currently has a tilt of 3.99 degrees, but it was once tilting at a dangerous 5.5 degrees before its restoration.

Your Experience

You will begin with an amazing drive through the scenic countryside of Tuscany until you reach Pisa, a city renowned for its splendid architecture. When you reach the city, you will meet a knowledgeable local guide who will take you on an outdoor walking tour of Piazza dei Miracoli and the other monuments in the area. This square is an architectural delight that houses the Cathedral, whose design clearly showcases the unique Pisan-Romanesque style of architecture. The tour will then take you to the Leaning Tower and the circular Baptistery. The excursion will focus primarily on the Leaning Tower, its fascinating history and the story behind its unique name. Following this, you will move on to the Piazza Arcivescovado, which is where the impressive Palazzo Vescovile is located. The tour at an end, you will then have time to discover some of the oldest churches in the Knights’ Square and Pisa on your own.
