What You Can Expect

Pisa Walking Tour: Cathedral Square and Piazza dei Cavalieri

Admire the exterior of Pisa Baptistry

Meet your guide and set off on a leisurely walk to Cathedral Square. The beautiful walled square is said to be the heart of Pisa, and as you explore, your guide will talk to you about its history and monuments. Admire Duomo di Pisa, Campo Santo, Pisa Baptistry, and, of course, the Leaning Tower of Pisa – a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Learn how Pisa Baptistry’s construction spanned a period of nearly 200 years, resulting in an array of architectural styles. Stop for photos next to the elegant landmark, and then walk across the square to Campo Santo, an old cemetery that was originally built as a church. Continue to the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and pose for photos next to it as your guide explains its famous tilt.

Leave Cathedral Square and walk through Pisa’s historical quarters, passing the Church of San Sito, one of the city’s oldest places of worship. After a short stroll, arrive in Knights’ Square, and learn how it was once Pisa’s political center. See Scuola Normale di Pisa, a highly regarded university founded by Napoleon Bonaparte in the 1800s, and then stop next to Conte Ugolino Tower to learn about its prominence in Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy poem.

Admire a medley of Renaissance and medieval architecture as you amble past the house where the 18th-century Italian poet Giacomo Leopardi once lived. Wander through Piazza Arcivescovado and marvel at the impressive Palazzo Vescovile, an ornate palace-turned-hotel.

Your tour finishes at Piazza Arcivescovado and after hearing about its sights, bid your guide goodbye.

Customer Reviews

4 star rating: Recommended May 2014

The guide was really very nice and as all viator guides seemed to really knew her stuff. The walking tour was an interesting way to see the main features of Pisa and even though it poured with rain we enjoyed it, the good thing about Pisa is that almost every attraction is in walking distance and the leaning tower, Baptistry and Cathedral are just beautiful far more so than in photographs. We like viator and use them whenever in Italy, it's a good way to learn that bit extra.

3 star rating: Worth doing July 2013

this was just OK, not great. Does not include going inside any of the buildings.
