Visit Italy’s famous Leaning Tower like a VIP with private transport directly from your Florence hotel through the Tuscan countryside to Pisa. Your guide, well-versed in all things Pisa, will explain the fascinating history of its iconic landmark as you relax in your comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle.
Built in 1173, the Leaning Tower owes its name to the soft ground that it was founded upon. During construction, the architect did not realize that the weight of the foundation was too much for the earth below. Though the tower has now been reinforced to stop its continued sinking, the building still maintains the unusual slant that has attracted millions of visitors. Once in Pisa, you will enjoy plenty of free time to take pictures or climb to the top of the tower.
In addition to the famous bell tower, there are several other beautiful Romanesque buildings to explore during your time in Pisa. Take a stroll through the Pisa Cathedral to see its stunning painted frescos, marvel at the towering dome of the Baptistry, or enjoy the exteriors of both with a gelato in the Square of Miracles.
