Full description
The itinerary is absolutely easy going and the walking will be at a leisurely pace. This will be a unique experience to enjoy an unpretentious university city where you will have the opportunity to learn about the history and the monuments but also about every day life of a small and lively medieval Tuscan town. You will see the city from a different angle – discover the hidden lanes, photograph the city from unusual places and, of course, climb the world-famous Leaning Tower and visit the beautiful Cathedral of Pisa. From Pisa Centrale train station, you will start exploring the city from the southern side all the way to the Leaning Tower on the northern side on a 2.5 hour walk through the historic city center. You will learn about the history of the city, its palaces, monuments and characters, as well as the life of a small and ancient Tuscan university town. You'll hear about the Etruscan and Roman Pisa and the centuries of glory of the maritime republic during medieval times. On your way to the Square of Miracles, you'll find traces the Medici and Galileo have left in the city and much more. On your last stop of the walking tour, you will visit the impressive monumental complex of the Square of Miracles with an entrance to the cathedral and Leaning Tower (30 more minutes needed to climb the Tower).

David, our guide, was knowledgeable and took us around at key places

The tour timing was given as 2.5 hours when booking online, but it does not take into account that an additional half hour is required to climb up the Leaning Tower. David, our guide, spent too much time on some spots in the city on the way to the tower and hurried us up at the Tower location. Perhaps some more time should be allocated for being at the Cathedral and the Tower

Charming Pisa

Pisa is a charming town, at once old and new. We had a very good introduction on our tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and introduced Pisa very well. He pointed out various places of interest and took a keen interest in ensuring the group was engaged. It helped that we were a really small group. The Leaning Tower and Cathedral were magical. We got a lot of time to walk around, enjoy the ambience and soak in the history and culture. Overall, an excellent experience.
