With our private, express access tour of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, you will have the experience of a lifetime. Our expert guides will explain some of the little known facts and history, such as why people bury coins beneath the tower, whether the tower is really scheduled to fall, and how the lean came about in in the first place. This express access tour will get you quickly past the long lines that many regular ‘tourists’ experience, giving you much more time to leisurely climb the tower and admire the views.
GUIDED TOUR OF THE DUOMO AND BAPTISTERY.
We’ll start with the beautiful Duomo with its famous bell tower. This gorgeous 11th-century cathedral isn’t just pleasing to the eye, but is also filled with some of the most important art in all of Italy. Your personal guide will help to bring this art to life. You will learn stories like how Galileo came up with his theory of pendulum movement in this very cathedral, by watching the incense lamp swing from the ceiling! You will also be guided into the Baptistery, a 12th-century building that is one of the most elaborate in all of Italy. It is even taller than the Leaning Tower, and you’ll find out what makes it so unique, and why it is very closely associated with the beginning of the Italian Renaissance!
NEXT STOP: The Camposanto Monumentale, or “Monumental Cemetery.”
The Camposanto Monumentale, or “Monumental Cemetery” is one of the most beautiful and unusual cemeteries in the world! The story is that it was built on a shipload of sacred soil brought back from the Crusades by Pisa’s archbishop, so that’s where the name comes from: Camop Santo means “Holy Field.” The cemetery has a gorgeous Gothic cloister with a collection of at least 84 ancient Roman sarcophagi. Once famous for its medieval frescoes, they are no longer there. Ask your guide about the reason why, but it has something to do with Allied bombings during WWII.
EXPRESS ENTRANCE LEANING TOWER OF PISA TICKETS MEANS YOU BYPASS THE LONG LINES!
Last, but not least, it’s the Leaning Tower of Pisa itself! You will learn the tower’s secrets, including the ‘miracle’ of why it’s even still standing. Within just 5 years of construction began in the 12th century, the tower began to sink into the soft soil. Even after more recent efforts to right the tower, to keep it from collapsing, the 185 foot structure still leans at a 5 degree angle! You’re going to thoroughly enjoy this private, express access tour with our small group. Don’t spend hours waiting in line, like others do. See the Leaning Tower of Pisa the right way, and enjoy more of your vacation time immersed in the experience and the learning, not yawning and waiting in lines.
