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.

The bus was prompt and the guide gave some information on the bus which was useful once at Pisa. At Pisa we met a second guide who was informative and entertaining.

Our tour guides were fantastic. We were picked up on time and driven through the lovely countryside to Pisa, where we were handed over to the lady who guided us through the Square of Miracles. She was FANTASTIC. Very funny and helpful and gave us a lot of information in a way that even my 8-yr-old still remembers. We had enough time after the tour to walk up the tower if we wanted and shop for a bit before it was time to drive back. However, since the lines are usually long at both the ticket office and the tower, I recommend you buy your tower tickets beforehand, so you can skip atleast one line. We skipped the whole thing, cause it was 300 steps and we'd walked enough the past week, so spent our free time shopping, relaxing and taking cheesy pictures of the leaning tower like every other tourist. But the tour was great. Only slight complaint was that the a/c on board the bus was not very effective, so it was a tad warm inside, but hopefully, that was fixed.

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.
