The Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of the most iconic buildings in Europe, no, scratch that, the world. Climbing the 296 steps to the summit to enjoy spectacular views over the city is a must for many, and with this Florence gift experience you can beat the queues with skip-the-line tickets to the leaning tower. Departing from Florence, you’ll first visit the renowned Piazza dei Miracoli (the Square of Miracles), which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its stunning medieval architecture - don’t miss the gargoyles perched on the cathedral’s facade.
After a guided tour around Pisa including the old city walls, the Porta Santa Maria and the famed monumental graveyard of Campo Santo with its ancient frescoes, you’ll have the opportunity to climb up the leaning tower, which took 200 years to build, and a lot less for the construction problems to become evident! Pose for the obligatory photos outside, learn about the scientific experiments of Galileo, and drink in the majesty of the Pisa Cathedral with its gilded ceilings and masterpieces of Italian art. Transportation is by comfortable air-conditioned coach, and with an expert guide leading the way, this makes for a fantastic Pisa sightseeing trip from Florence.
