LivTours’ Private Pisa tour from Florence starts by meeting your private guide at a central location, just near the Santa Maria Novella Station. Your guide will already have your train tickets and once you’re onboard you can sit back and enjoy one of the most beautiful train rides in Italy, with views of rolling hilltops as far as the eye can see. The one hour train ride will give your private guide plenty of time to tell you about Tuscany, as well as prepare you for your Pisa tour!
Upon arrival in Pisa, you and your private tour guide will take a 10 minute taxi ride to the “Piazza of Miracles”—home to the Cathedral, Baptistery, and the famous Leaning Tower! Your walking tour starts with a visit to the Baptistery, where your expert guide will share with you the history of this beautiful building as you explore the interior together. You will find out how this very building is built on the same unstable foundations as that of the Leaning Tower of Pisa and how it is the largest baptistery in Italy! Admire the magnificent Romanesque and Gothic styles before moving into the cathedral.
The next stop on your walking tour will be the Cathedral of Pisa. Built incorporating several different architectural styles—Byzantine, classical, and Islamic—it is a stunning piece of architecture. Construction of the cathedral started in 1063, the same year that Saint Mark’s Basilica began its reconstruction in Venice. Both cities were important maritime towns with a commercial focus and this was a clear indication of their rivalry! Notice that the Cathedral of Pisa was built outside of the early medieval walls, to show that the citizens of Pisa had no fear of being attacked.
As you exit the cathedral, your expert guide will accompany you to the site you have been waiting to see—the Leaning Tower of Pisa. This world famous building with a slight tilt wins the hearts of travelers, but before climbing to the top, your guide will tell you about its facts and curious anecdotes, so you have everything you need to know before your climb up. You will find out why this building leans and what feats of engineering have been put in place to keep it from falling over! Leaving your guide behind for this epic climb, you will enter with pre-reserved tickets go right up to the top to enjoy some of the best views over Tuscany. Once you have got your fair share of gorgeous panoramas, meet your tour guide back down at the bottom to continue.
You will now leave the Piazza of Miracles behind and head take a relaxing still through one of the nearby parks so you can fully enjoy the natural beauty that Tuscany is so well known for. Afterwards, you will explore the historic city center of Pisa—a quaint Renaissance city with famous former inhabitants (every heard of a guy named Galileo?). After strolling along the Arno and maybe stopping for some Gelato, jump back on the train and enjoy the rest of your day in Florence!

The uniqueness of Pisa
"We wanted to see Pisa so while we were staying in Florence, we took LivItaly's half day Pisa tour. All of the transportation and tickets were taken care of by the LivItaly host so this was a completely stress-free excursion. In Pisa, we saw the Cathedral and Bapistry and, of course, the Leaning Tower which we walked up. Our guide, Irma, was just fantastic and we went back to Florence with a new understanding of the historical importance and the beauty of Pisa. We were really happy that we had booked this tour. Thanks LivItaly!"
