The Leaning Tower in Pisa
The Leaning Tower is the Cathedral Bell Tower, today leaning to 13.5 feet. The Tower was built in a perfect vertical position, but it started leaning with the terrain sinking. In the past many restoration works have been made to stabilize the building. If you wish, we can purchase the Leaning Tower tickets, so that you can have the chance to admire the beautiful landscape and the city from its top. There are 294 marble steps in order to reach the top of the tower , but the view is surely worth the effort. Moreover, the Leaning Tower is considered one of the seven wonders of the medieval world.
Campo dei Miracoli and the precious medieval old town in Pisa
Campo dei Miracoli (the Field of Miracles or Square of Miracles, as per the words of the Italian Poet Gabriele d’Annunzio when he saw the square from the height of a plane) is a marvellous architectural complex. UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site for its beauty in 1987. Besides the Leaning Tower, built as an independent Bell Tower behind the Cathedral, we find the Duomo (dedicated to Santa Maria Assunta), the Baptistery and the Camposanto (the Graveyard). The Cathedral was the first to be built in the 12th century in a typical Romanesque style. A nice green lawn surrounds the buildings and many students and locals use lie down here and relax during the sunny days.
Afterwards, you can choose to either visit the old town on your own or to have us escort you by minivan/car. In this last case, we will bring you to the second most important square in Pisa, Piazza Dei Cavalieri.

Lucca, the City with a hundred Churches

Piazza dell’Anfiteatro is the heart of the town, a medieval square mantaining the shape of the old Roman Amphitheatre located there. Indeed, the square features the shape of an ancient arena. Here you find today many nice bars and restaurants.
Lucca and its historic walls
The ancient city of Lucca features wide high walls around the city centre, dating back to the 17th century. Today they do not serve a defensive reason anymore, but on top you find a beautiful green lawn. Locals love to walk around the city centre and admire it from the old walls. The park is 4 km long. If you wish to see the town from another perspective, you can rent bikes for you and you can ride it on the old walls around the town.
