Most famous for its Leaning Tower, Pisa is one of the most visited cities in all of Tuscany. It is also home to one of the most beautiful monumental complexes anywhere in the world, the Piazza dei Miracoli. The town enjoyed a period of prosperity in the 12th century, signified by the shape of the town centre which is built along the shape of the river Arno which would have been the main communication route. The banks of the river are filled with many squares, buildings and alleys. An estuary town, and an important naval base in Roman times, Pisa became a major trade centre of the Mediterranean. One of Europe’s most prestigious higher learning institutions, the Scuola Normale Superiore is also located in Pisa. One of our licensed guides will bring you into the Cathedral and to the exteriors of the Leaning Tower and Monumental Cemetery. You will also have plenty of free time to take pictures and wander around the square.
