Shared Tour: Pisa through the Tuscan Countryside by Motorcoach
Enjoy a splendid excursion through the fertile and picturesque Tuscan countryside to the historic university city of Pisa, famous for its architectural beauty. Upon arrival in Pisa, your informative guide will take you on a thorough outdoor, guided walking tour of Piazza dei Miracoli and its monuments (exterior). You will be dazzled by this marvelous square, which is dominated by the Cathedral (inside visit), a model of the distinctive Pisan Romanesque architecture, the celebrated Leaning Tower and the round-shaped Baptistery surrounded by its columned arcades and its Camposanto, originally a cemetery, an extraordinary quadrangular cloister delimiting with its marble facade the Square to the North.
The commentary of our guide will be particularly focused on the Leaning Tower, one of the wonders of the world. You will be enthralled by the history and the leaning structure of the Tower, which stirs the imagination of all visitors. After the guided visit, you will have some free time to explore the historical quarter where you can admire the church of San Sisto, one of the oldest churches in Pisa, and Piazza dei Cavalieri, which was the political center during the middle age and where the Scuola Normale, one of the most famous universities in the world, is located.
