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.

Great tour. Ride was informative and once in Pisa we were handed over to a guide that was excellent and knowledgeable. We had enough free time and were able to climb the tower during the tour without having to rush. Good value.

Just the right amount of time to complete the tour. It would have been more enjoyable if we hadn't spent so much trying to herd some the other tour members who kept wandering off.

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.

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.
