Meet your private, fully-licensed chauffeur guide at your hotel in Florence and hop into a private, fully equipped V-Class minivan. During the 1-hour trip to Pisa (approx.) you will be able to learn about the Tuscan countryside and see its picturesque landscape.
Upon arriving in Pisa, let your guide tell you all about its most iconic area: Miracle Square.
After a brief explanation on the history of Pisa and its importance both past and present, you will climb up the world-famous Leaning Tower (your guide will not be able to climb with you as guides are not allowed to give explanations inside the tower). After this 30-minute experience inside the tower, your guide will show you the exterior of the square’s other iconic monuments: the Cathedral, an emblem of Pisan Romanesque architecture, followed by the discovery of the Baptistery.
If there are no lines, your guide will take you inside the Cathedral.
To keep your children engaged throughout the tour, they will each receive a fun-filled game booklet upon your arrival in Pisa. A stop for a gelato (Italian ice cream) is also included in this family-friendly experience.
- Children under the age of 8 are NOT allowed to climb the tower for security reasons.
- The internal regulations of the Leaning Tower of Pisa stipulate that visitors can only stay up to 30 minutes inside the tower.
- A strict security check is operated at the foot of the Leaning Tower: hand bags, backpacks etc. are not allowed inside the tower and can be left inside the mini-van or in lockers located inside the museum.
- There are many (251) steps to climb up to the top of the Leaning Tower, and the last staircase is very narrow. People who are afraid of heights or suffer from claustrophobia, cardiovascular and muscular disorders should not climb the tower.
