An incredible journey on the Miracle square of Pisa - Not just the leaning tower


The leaning tower of Pisa is famous in all the world, but I will also guide you through the unique monuments this square includes: cathedral, holy cemetery, hospital and baptistry. The main monuments were built in the 11th century to create harmony and balance for our eyes and our soul. This a unique example in the architecture of the the 11th century, in which we can see the extraordinary thought of the romanesque style. You will be astonished.

Itinerary

Pisa is not just a photo taken in front of the Tower, but a fascinating trip through the medieval and theological symbolism expressed in Nicola Pisano's sculptures, Buffalmacco's frescoes in the Camposanto and the pulpit in the Cathedral.
Pisa, wealthy maritime republic and powerful city since the 11th century, displays all its grandeur in the masterpieces:The Cathedral: without exaggeration, one of the most beautiful in Italy, with its Moorish style and the marvellous pulpit by Giovanni Pisano, a true masterpiece of Gothic sculpture in Italy.
The Baptistery: the simple pulpit by Nicola Pisano from the end of the 13th century, its impressive geometry and perfect echo.
The Tower: slender and delicate with all the arches which give it a lightness belying its weight, in part responsible for its "defect".
The Holy Cemetery or Camposanto: its charming Gothic corridors with Roman sarcophagi and the walls covered with 14th and 15th century frescoes.

A Recent Review of this tour

Excellent tour and Karine met us at the train station and provided us with transport for our tour. Excellent itinerary that accommodated our wish to visit San Miniato post Pisa. Karine is an excellent guide with a huge depth of knowledge on her historical topics. She also has excellent knowledge of the areas we visited - included the vocals in the Baptism building, plus the organ in the Cathedral + a visit to the cemetery that is only open on specific days. Karine also helped us book a meal and cab.
