Pisa Tour


The world-famous Leaning Tower of Pisa, as well as many other architectural monuments, can be seen in Pisa, Italy. From historic cathedrals and palaces to lovely Italian squares, the city is steeped in history.

Pisa’s history dates back to the 8th century BC, when it began as a tiny Etruscan hamlet. The hamlet became Pisae, a Roman colony, circa 30 BC. It was a prosperous Roman city, owing to its strategic location and the abundance of natural riches in the vicinity.

Attractions in Pisa

The Leaning Tower of Pisa

Millions of people visit this UNESCO World Heritage site each year, but the 800-year-old famous for its Tilted tower (of 5.5 degrees) making the building look as if it defies gravity is undoubtedly the star attraction and the primary reason why Pisa is included on so many Italian itineraries in the first place.


The round Battistero di San Giovanni, built in the 12th century, was the second structure to be built within the Campo dei Miracoli. While the exterior of Italy’s greatest baptistery is magnificently detailed.

Wander around the circular building admiring the details of the architecture before looking inside. The interior is lovely, despite its simplicity. The higher level, from where you can get fantastic views of Pisa, is well worth a visit.

Campo Santo Monumentale

Camposanto is a large cemetery that is part of the same complex as Pisa’s Leaning Tower. It was constructed in 1277 to tidy up the graveyard next to the church. It’s also stated that the earth here came from the crucifixion site of Jesus! Because of the history, many renowned and prominent people are buried here, including the mathematician Fibonacci, who invented the Fibonacci sequence, which is still taught in schools today.
