Highlights / General details
PISA, one of the most visited cities in Tuscany, is famous for its Leaning Tower and the beautiful Piazza dei Miracoli, which are the most beautiful monumental complexes in the world.
The town’s most prosperous period was undoubtedly the 12th century. This is witnessed by the urban shape of the old town centre with many buildings, squares and alleyways that run along the river Arno, which was for centuries the major line of communication that swarmed with life. It has always been an estuary town and was already an important naval base in Roman times intensifying trade in the Mediterranean ever since the 11th century.
Pisa is also famous for one of the most prestigious higher learning institutions of Europe: the Scuola Normale Superiore. An authorised city guide will accompany you in the visit to the exterior of the Leaning Tower and Monumental Cemetery. The Cathedral will be visited inside. Free time available afterwards.
