Pisa is one of the most visited cities in Tuscany. It is famous for its Leaning Tower and the beautiful Piazza dei Miracoli, which is among the most beautiful monumental complexes in the world.
Pisa's most prosperous period was undoubtedly the 12th century. This is witnessed by the urban shape of the old city center with many buildings, squares, and alleyways that run along the river Arno, a major communication route for centuries.
Pisa has always been an estuary town and was already an important naval base in Roman times. The city is also famous for one of the most prestigious higher learning institutions in Europe: the "Scuola Normale Superiore".
An authorized local guide will accompany you during the visit to the exterior of the Leaning Tower and the Monumental Cemetery and the interior of the Cathedral. At the end of the guided tour, you will have some free time.
