Tuscany Travel Guide: Picture-Perfect Pisa


Pisa is one of Italy’s most picturesque cities, and makes for an unforgettable daytrip if you and your travel companions are enthralled by architecture and history. If you’re looking to experience this city in addition to some other beauties of Tuscany, there’s no better way to do so than to come along on our Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour.

Pisa is a real paradise for all, whether you’re a culture vulture, history buff or architecture enthusiast. So, what are you waiting for? Join our experienced Tuscany travel guides and prepare for a tour you’ll never forget. Here are some of our favourite picture-perfect highlights.


The Leaning Tower

Of course, you can’t visit Pisa without experiencing the majesty of the iconic Leaning Tower. The construction of the building began in 1173 and took a whopping 200 years to complete, so visitors with a passion for history will truly be in their element. With various marble arches and other impressive design features, this attraction is not to be missed on your visit to Pisa.

Climb the twisting staircase and let your muscles feel the building’s eight storeys – those who dare to reach the peak will be greeted by the tower’s bell chamber. While the climb might not be for the faint of heart, it’ll certainly be a memorable activity for you and your travel companions!

"Walkabout tours through Tuscany was amazing! Amazing day and lunch stop, worth the money. Olivia (tour guide) and Ricardo (our bus driver) were very personable and a joy to spend the day with! Got to see everything with ample time, never feeing rushed! Definitely recommend."

The Cathedral

Pisa Cathedral is yet another fantastic highlight of the city, and again, if you’re intrigued by architecture, this is a must-see. The exterior is truly striking, with detailed marble structures, archways and, of course, the magnificent dome at the centre.

Once you’ve taken in all the beauty on the Cathedral’s exterior, it will be time to venture inside to see what lies within. Prepare to be amazed by the mosaics, statues and stunning gold décor as you wander across the marble floors, immersing yourself in history and culture as you go… what better way to spend a day in Italy?

The Baptistery

After being enthralled by the beauty of the Leaning Tower and the city’s famous Cathedral, enjoy a quick visit to the Baptistery to end your day in style. Located in front of the west facade of the Cathedral, this symbolic structure is truly breath-taking and definitely deserves to be admired.

As the largest baptistery in Italy, it represents one of the most ‘international’ medieval structures in Pisa thanks to its various architectural influences. It’s certainly a must-see, and you’ll be sure to pay it a visit if you book onto a sightseeing tour.

Of course, if you’re joining a Tuscany travel guide on this Walkabout Florence tour, you’ll also have plenty of free time to enjoy the lesser-known beauties of Pisa, from the brightly coloured streets to the quaint local markets. This city is a culture lover’s dream!
