Let Well Arranged Travel take you on a guided tour of Pisa. Enjoy a private day trip from Florence and have a guided tour of Pisa, a Roman colony dating from the 2nd century B.C. and home to the famous “leaning tower,” with an English-speaking tour guide.
A naval and commercial port, Pisa became a maritime republic in the Middle Ages, rivaling Genova, Amalfi and Venice. Its peak came in the 12th and 13th centuries, by which time Pisa controlled Corsica, Sardinia, and most of the mainland coast as far south as Civitavecchia. Most of the city’s finest buildings date from this period, when the distinctive Pisan-Romanesque architectural style flourished. Since the 15th century, the city was governed by Florence, whose Medici rulers re-established the University of Pisa, where Galileo, Pisa’s most famous native, once taught.
Your custom guided tour of Pisa will also take you to Campo dei Miracoli, a large, grassy piazza containing Pisa’s cathedral, the baptistery, the cemetery and Pisa’s most famous landmark, the leaning tower. You will wander around this beautiful square and enjoy the amazing architecture.
