Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

What you will visit:

Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles) (1-hour on your own)
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles) is home of the famed Leaning Tower, which is actually the cathedral's bell tower, as well the duomo, the baptistery, the monumental cemetery and museums. Many people ask why it leans and what its original purpose was. The tower was meant to be the bell tower for the cathedral, but due to its faulty design and loose soil beneath it, it never fulfilled its purpose. The Leaning Tower of Pisa really is leaning! On the side where the tower is higher, it stands at 187.27 feet, and on the low side it stands at 186 feet.

What you will see along the way:
a relaxing ride through the countryside brings you to Pisa, one of Tuscany's most beautiful cities and the Leaning Tower.

Special Notes:

If you wish to independently visit the Cathedral, the Baptistery or Campo Santo, an admission fee is required, so plan to carry Euros with you. Recently re-opened, admittance to the tower is limited and is not included in the excursion.

Photography is not permitted in the Cathedral.

Please be aware that ongoing restoration work is often being carried out at the various venues visited.

Tour groups are not allowed inside the Cathedral during mass services. Entry will be allowed on an individual basis to view the interior quietly and reverently..
