1:45 PM  Transfer to Pisa – Tower

3:00 PM visit of Pisa (Piazza dei Miracoli)

Pisa was an important port town & in 180BC became a Roman colony known as Portus Pisanus, from where naval expeditions & invasions were launched. During the Renaissance, competition for supremacy against the Sienese & Florentines led to the creation of ‘The Field of Miracles’, with its beautiful cathedral, baptistery & bell tower.

Entering this sector of Pisa through its ancient city walls, you will view the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The tower started tilting as soon as it was constructed in 1173, due to inadequate foundations & a sandy, silty subsoil.

The tower is 56 metres high & weighs approximately 14,500 metric tonnes. The tower has 296 steps on one side & 294 steps on the leaning side. The tower’s lean is dramatic and we can pause to take photographs from various angles. Today the foundations have been fortified with thousands of tonnes of prestressed concrete to avoid the collapse of this iconic structure.

Please note: Tickets to ascend the Leaning Tower cost 15 Euros & are not included in the tour cost.

5:30 PM Arrival at The Ship.
