Cultural Walking Tour of Pisa with Leaning Tower of Pisa Entry Ticket
- Fully narrated tour
- Informative, friendly and professional guide
Then, either enjoy some free time to sightsee independently before meeting your guide back at the tower, or continue exploring the town with your guide, passing through the medieval quarters. Admire the area's statuesque Romanesque architecture, and then head into Knights’ Square – a site that was Pisa’s political center during the Middle Ages. See Scuola Normale di Pisa, a prestigious university founded by Napoleon Bonaparte in the 1800s, and stop next to Conte Ugolino Tower to learn about its role in Dante Alighieri’s poem Divine Comedy.
Admire Renaissance and medieval buildings while wandering past the house where the 18th-century Italian poet Giacomo Leopardi once lived. Walk through Piazza Arcivescovado and gaze in awe at the impressive Palazzo Vescovile.
Then, both groups meet back at a pre-arranged point near the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Head to the entrance and then walk up the 294-step spiral staircase to reach the top.
After spending time at the top of the tower, admiring the views of Pisa, head back down the stairs to finish your tour.
Please note: If you have no head for heights, walking difficulties or aversion to enclosed spaces, the Leaning Tower of Pisa climb probably won’t be for you. Use the time to relax at leisure in Cathedral Square, instead.

The walking tour focused on area surrounding the tower. As entrance to tower itself was pre-booked to manage crowd control, sufficient time was given to both climb the tower and to take in the view from the top before descending. One challenge - where as most of the tour leaders had a very visible identifying symbol, our tour leaders only wore a lanyard identifying company's name making it difficult to find them in the crowd as majority of participants were arrivals from cruise ship and did not have struggle to find out where to go. For those of us who walked to meet the starting point, it was difficult to assess as area very crowded.
