Fascinating walking tour, including legends & anecdots


If you are visiting Pisa for the first time, this is the perfect tour for you! We will explore the so called 'Square of Miracles', where the most famous Leaning Tower stands out!

I will guide you around the beautiful buildings which emerge as 'miracles' from the green meadow and create an architectural whole characterized by a really surprising stylistic accordance, to the point of having been compared by Le Corbusier to the acropolis of Athens (Voyage d'Orient, 1911).

Itinerary

After a brief introduction we will start a delightful walk around:
-The Duomo, a triumph of the Pisan Romanesque style and with exceptional islamic details
-the Baptistery enobled by Nicola Pisano's pulpit and with fabulous acoustics inside;
-the Camposanto (Graveyard), with beautiful Roman sarcophagi and XIV-XVI century frescos
- the most famous Bell Tower, which has been leaning since XII century

I would be happy to extend the visit to 3 hour so we could visit the Duomo, the Baptistery (we would attend to an echo demonstration) and Camposanto which was very popular between XIV and XVIII century because of a 'holy soil' the locals took from Jerusalem.
You just have to pay the extra cost of 5, 00 euros (for only the Baptistery)-7, 00 (Baptistery+Camposanto) and my guiding service - please feel free to send me a message for details!

A Recent Review of this tour

Our trip to Pisa and Cinque Terra from Florence with Martina was wonderful. She arranged a private pickup at our hotel in Florence to Pisa where we had a very knowledgeable tour then off with the driver and Martina to visit several Cinque Terra towns walking and by boat. Martina showed us the most interesting things and always checked to make sure what we were interested in. We had a great time with her and returned with the driver to our hotel in Florence loving the day. We recommend Martini to all.
