Art and architecture come together on this guided tour of the Pisa Cathedral and the Piazza dei Miracoli, one of the main visitor attractions in Tuscany.
Our tour begins in Piazza Manin, in front of the Porta Santa Maria Arch which forms the entrance to the Piazza dei Miracoli.
In this UNESCO World Heritage Site can be found a large number of the most famous monuments in Pisa. We begin our tour around the most celebrated gardens in the Tuscan region, getting up close to the St. John's Baptistery, the largest in Italy. This circular structure, dedicated to baptism dates from the 12th century. Although the monument is clearly Romanic, from the outside we can still contemplate its impressively decorated Gothic dome.
After we will pass along the austere cemetery walls to learn more about the architecture of the Piazza dei Miracoli: after which we will enter the cathedral to take a guided tour of this spectacular temple. We begin at the beginning, with the construction of the cathedral, beginning in the 11th century. The tour takes us back in time, learning the most famous stories this church has lived through; and in its interior can be found a complete collection of artistic works: mosaics and paintings surrounding the altar, the detailed tiled ceiling, marble sculptures and the gigantic pulpit.
Climb the Leaning Tower
On this tour you can also choose to climb the Leaning Tower of Pisa. This is a 30-minute unguided visit, where we will give you the tickets to climb to the top of the bell tower and enjoy its spectacular views. This option allows you to avoid the long lines which can be found at the tower entrance.
For safety reasons, children under 8 may not climb the leaning tower.
