Description

Private Florence to Pisa day tours to the leaning tower of Pisa allow our clients to enjoy a relaxed tour of the city of Pisa & its famous leaning tower. These half-day tours of Pisa rom Florence can depart in the morning or afternoon, and if required we can arrange skip the line tickets for you to climb the two-hundred steps of the tower during your visit to the field of miracles. Travel in an air-conditioned Mercedes vehicle with an English-speaking driver guide to discover that Pisa is much more than the leaning tower.

During our half day tours of Pisa from Florence, visit the appealing town of Pisa, whose major attraction is the splendid and imposing Piazza dei Miracoli. Home to the Leaning Tower of Pisa, one of the most famous tourist attractions in Italy. Before visiting what many art historians believe to be one of the most important centres of Medieval Art, you'll enjoy a driving tour of the city centre of Pisa to understand how Pisa became such an important centre for arts during Medieval Times.

We'll drive along the banks of the River Arno, flanked by elegant Renaissance Palaces and Churches, like the splendid gothic facade of Santa Maria Della Spina. During this part of your tour of Pisa your guide will talk about the history of this town, which in XI century was a mighty maritime nation, one of the four Marine Republics of Italy. At that time Pisa was a very important commercial centre and controlled a significant Mediterranean merchant fleet and navy.

Our Private Pisa Tours from Florence continues as we approach the extraordinary Piazza Dei Miracoli or Cathedral Square, dominated by the world famous Leaning Bell Tower. Partly paved and partly grassed, it's dominated by four great edifices: the Duomo (Cathedral), the famous leaning tower, the Baptistry and the monumental Cemetery. All the buildings within this walled area were built between XI and XIV century in an eclectic architectural style called Pisano, with strong influences from Byzantine, Arabian, Romanesque and Gothic forms of Art.

For clients who wish to climb the 200-steps to the top of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, please refer to the section below for the optional costs involved.
And after some time spent in this fantastic site taking in the beauty and peace of this religious area, we'll make our way back to Florence to finish your Tour of Pisa.

Marco was our driver from Florence to Pisa and provided us a great narrative of the countryside and history of Pisa. Marco provided us skip-the-line tickets to climb The Leaning Tower and we had plenty of time to explore the area. We got some amazing pictures of the countryside and Pisa. Marco was professional, helpful, interesting and extremely knowledgeable as he lived in Pisa while at University, so I felt he gave us some additional insight into the area. I would certainly recommend this tour as a must-see when visiting Italy.
