What To Expect
A professional guided walking tour will take you to the Piazza dei Miracoli, where you will be able to admire the exterior of the Baptistery, the Cathedral, the "Campo Santo," and the Leaning Tower.
The commentary of our guide will be particularly focused on the Leaning Tower, one of the wonders of the world. You will be enthralled by the history and 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.
Passing the famous medieval Tower houses, be captivated by the explanation provided by our guide about the history of these particular buildings. While walking through the downtown streets, you can admire the ancient house where Giacomo Leopardi lived. Then you will reach the amazing Piazza Arcivescovado where the impressive Palazzo Vescovile is located.
The guided tour will end by the magnificent Leaning Tower. Climbing to its top by mounting its 294 steps rising up in a spiral. It will be one of the most amazing experiences you can ever try! The tower is 55.86 m tall (183.27 ft) from the ground on the low side and 56.70 m tall (186.02 ft) on the high side, around 3.99 degrees leaning. The weak and unstable subsoil caused this unique phenomenon, contributing to the creation of one of the wonders of the world.
