Skip the line and experience one of the most famous Italian squares in the world
A guided tour to discover the Unesco World Heritage site of the Square of the Cathedral of Pisa, well known as the Square of Miracles.
The Monumental Cemetery with a 2000 sq ft wall of frescoes, the biggest Baptistery of the world, the marble Cathedral and Bell Tower (Leaning Tower) are the monuments which nestle amidst the medieval walls in the north west of Pisa. These communicate between themselves and with us through a system of symbols which were necessary in a society where citizens were unable to read.
What you will see is not just a group of religious buildings, but a powerful message sent by a Republic that aimed at ruling the Mediterranean lands.
Why does the Tower lean? Let see it together with a SKIP THE LINE ticket!
A walk through the main monuments of the Square, finding out the reason why the powerful city of Pisa needed to obtain the biggest religious centre of Italy almost 1000 years ago.
Starting from the Romanesque and Gothic Baptistery, we'll discover how this incredible building worked. Walking toward the Cathedral, witness of one of the experiments of Galileo Galilei, we will get to know the XIII century Hospital (still working) and the monumental Cemetery, known as the Holy Field.
We will end up the tour in front of the Tower of the Assumption, climbing the Leaning Tower of Pisa up.
If you want, I can take you to the second important square of the city, the Square of the Knights of St. Stephen, seat of the great University of Pisa (10 min walking).
If you like to do it, we can get inside the main monuments.

Our guide Alessandro was waiting for us on our arrival as planned, we found him to be very personable, informative, knowledgable and had a great sense of humour. I would recommend using his services.
