What You Can Expect

Pisa and the Leaning Tower Half-Day Trip from Florence

See the UNESCO-listed Leaning Tower of Pisa on a day trip from Florence!

Depart from central Florence with your guide and venture west on just over an hour’s journey through the Tuscan countryside.

Upon arriving in Pisa, follow your guide through Cathedral Square, where you’ll spot the most famous tilted structure in the world: the UNESCO-listed Leaning Tower of Pisa. Learn about the tower’s unique history from your guide while snapping some photos. You’ll also see the Pisa Baptistry, Campo Santo and Duomo di Pisa, hearing the stories behind each architectural gem as you walk.

Afterward, opt to part ways with your guide to explore independently or continue your guided walk to Knights' Square.

Sharpen your literary history as you pass the house of Conte Ugolino, mentioned by Dante in the Divine Comedy. Check out the oldest church in Pisa, the Church of San Sisto. Then enter Knights' Square, the political epicenter of medieval Pisa and home to Renaissance architecture, marble statues and the esteemed Scuola Normale di Pisa, founded by Napoleon Bonaparte.

Continue past the former abode of 18th-century Italian poet Giacomo Leopardi. Your guided tour will conclude with a visit to the Palazzo Vescovile in Piazza Arcivescovado.

If you select a self-guided afternoon, reunite with your driver later at a prearranged time. You will be returned to your original departure point in central Florence.

Meeting spot was weird, in busy traffic on a corner? Bus ride was short, tour was plenty. Wish there had been a little more free time so I could have enjoyed my wine and the sunset.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

the tour guides were terrific.

The initial boarding of the busses, which is a problem with the tour operators, is somewhat chaotic. As a minimum a small table, clearly labeled which tour it is, that checks off and hands out the headsets would enhance the experience.

Everything was exactly as described! Pickup and drop off were on time, the guides were friendly and knowledgeable. I appreciated the extra time to explore Pisa to see other things I had on my to-do list. A bit pricier than what I would have liked to pay, but still a good trip :

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Would definitely recommend to those who are looking for a pleasant afternoon out of Florence. The trip was organized very well and offered enough time to see the grounds and the immediate area surrounding the plaza. If you are looking to spend more than an hour wondering around the town of Pisa, this wouldn't be for you, but as a way to have someone else take care of the logistics to get you to Pisa to see the Tower and the surrounding buildings, you can't beat it.
