What You Can Expect

Pisa Half-Day Trip from Florence Including Skip-the-Line Leaning Tower of Pisa Ticket

See Pisa Baptistry in Cathedral Square

Your day trip will begin in central Florence, where you’ll hop on your coach and relax on the 1.5-hour ride to Pisa. Watch the scenery change from bustling Florentine streets to the vineyards and rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside.

Upon arrival in Pisa, journey on foot to Cathedral Square with your guide. Admire the impressive Duomo, Baptistery and Campo Santo as your guide provides insightful background on the historic sites around you.

Opt for some free time to explore on your own afterward, or continue your guided tour to one of the oldest churches in Pisa, the Romanesque Church of San Sisto. Spot the Scuola Normale, a prominent university founded by Napoleon in the 19th century, and soak up some knowledge about poet Dante Alighieri with a stop at Conte Ugolino Tower. Learn about the tower's famous role in the Divine Comedy.

Admire the blend of medieval and Renaissance architecture as you stroll past the building where Italian poet Giacomo Leopardi once lived. Gaze up at the impressive Palazzo Vescovile in Piazza Arcivescovado, now a popular hotel.

After a break in town to purchase snacks or beverages, reunite with your guide near the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Make your way to the city’s most famous monument and bypass the lines with your direct access ticket. Head straight up the spiraling 294 steps to admire panoramic views at the top. Your tour will conclude with transportation back to Florence.

This half day tour to Pisa was an easy way to see the UNESCO World heritage site of the leaning tower of Pisa, while based in Florence. Tour guide Valerie was informative and made the myriad of facts interesting and relative in the 2 hours we had on site. Well planned and executed.

Very fun tour! Although the tour feels a little rushed and I would have enjoyed more actual free time at the tower to enjoy walking around and eating, I still really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide was organized, and the second tour guide was really informative. Overall I really enjoyed this tour and would do it again.

The meeting place was easy to find. The English speaking tour guide was passionate about the tour and was very friendly. The tour left on time and returned to Florence at the expected return time. We really enjoyed the climb of the Pisa tower, too!
