Pisa, one of the most visited cities in Tuscany, is famous for its Leaning Tower and the beautiful Piazza dei Miracoli, which are among the most beautiful monumental complexes in the world.
The town’s most prosperous period was undoubtedly the 12th century and this is witnessed by the urban shape of the old town center with many buildings, squares, and alleyways that run along the river Arno, which was for centuries the major communication route. It has always been an estuary town and was already an important naval base in Roman times intensifying trade in the Mediterranean. Pisa is also famous for one of the most prestigious higher learning institutions of Europe: the Scuola Normale Superiore. An authorized city guide will accompany you in the visit to the exterior of the Leaning Tower and Monumental Cemetery. The Cathedral will be visited inside. Free time available at the end of the tour.
