Description

Go on a splendid excursion through the fertile and picturesque Tuscan countryside to the historic university city of Pisa, famous for its architectural beauty. Upon arrival in Pisa, your informative guide will take you on a thorough outdoor guided walking tour of Piazza dei Miracoli and its monuments (exterior only). You will be dazzled by this marvelous square which is dominated by the Cathedral, a model of the distinctive Pisan Romanesque architecture, the celebrated Leaning Tower, and the round-shaped Baptistery surrounded by its suggestive columned arcades.

The commentary of our guide will be particularly focused on the Leaning Tower, one of the wonders of the world. Be enthralled by the history and the leaning structure of the Tower which stirs the imagination of all visitors. Then, our guide will lead you through the historical quarter where you can admire the Church of San Sisto, one of the oldest churches in Pisa.

After a pleasant guided walk you will reach Piazza dei Cavalieri, which was the political center in the Middle Ages. Our guide will introduce this amazing square where you can admire the historic Scuola Normale (Normal School), one of the most famous universities in the world, the house of Count Ugolino della Gherardesca, also called "Conte Ugolino Tower," as told by Dante in the Divine Comedy.
