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.
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.

Karine was flexible and accommodating to our rather fluid travel plans. She made it easy to travel around an unknown city through her guidance and even helped us purchase train tickets and store our luggage. Her knowledge and expertise was evident as we toured Pisa and she "told the story" of this remarkable city and its history. We had heard that Pisa was a few hours max visit and she enriched our experience. I am so grateful to the friends that have used tours by locals and recommended we try it.
