From this vantage point, enjoy a panoramic view of the city, including Piazza Dei Miracoli, with its marble architecture and neat grass lawns. Next, follow your guide on your visit to the precious interiors of the Cathedral, an unchallenged masterpiece of Romanesque art.

You will see the Pisa Baptistry and Duomo di Pisa, hearing the stories behind each architectural gem as you walk towards the world-famous, UNESCO-listed Leaning Tower of Pisa. Learn about the tower’s unique history from your guide while snapping some fantastic photos. If you have selected, the optional skip-the-line entrance ticket, get the opportunity to climb up the Pisa Tower to admire its unique structure and appreciate from a close-up perspective its tilting properties.
