Pisa and Florence: city of Italian Renaissance

Art and architecture have shaped the cities of Tuscany since the Renaissance.
Among them, Florence, the capital of Tuscany, is a city rich in works of art and architecture such as Brunelleschi’s Cathedral or the Accademia Gallery with Michelangelo’s David.
The small city of Pisa is known all over the world for its Leaning Tower standing in the historic Piazza dei Miracoli, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. However, this city is also a living testament of Italian art history, with some unique architectural structures such as the 1063 Cathedral built or the Monumental cemetery.

This tour offers roundtrip transportation from your hotel in Florence, Pisa or Lucca, or from the main stations, airports and ports, to the very center of Pisa.
Our bilingual guide, expert in art history, will lead you through an accessible itinerary designed specifically to help you discover all the secrets of medieval and renaissance history.

The museum itinerary includes the Baptistery, the Cathedral, the famous Leaning Tower and the monumental Cemetery. The whole area is widely accessible, due to a path that winds through the artistic and architectural beauties of the religious complex of the square.
Piazza dei Miracoli can be reached directly by van and from there, through an ad hoc path, you will arrive at the entrance to the Camposanto.
The beauty of the monumental tombs, the richness of the frescoes and the works from Etruscan and medieval times create a real open-air art gallery.

The Tower of Pisa, due of its shape, is only accessible from the outside. However, the whole area of Piazza dei Miracoli is fully accessible and deserves to be visited and remembered with a photo right next to the Leaning Tower.
The tour continues to the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo, which houses reproductions, models and documents related to the many construction phases of the architectural complex, as well as sections dedicated to Egyptian, Etruscan and Roman antiquities.

With the van you will be accompanied for lunch in a fully-accessible typical Tuscan restaurant, to taste the dishes of the Tuscan tradition, among the most renowned in Italy.
After lunch, the van will take you to the heart of Florence, where artists such as Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and Dante Alighieri have found inspiration for the creation of their masterpieces which still enlighten every corner of the city. As the famous director Franco Zeffirelli once said: “When I feel gripped by depression, I go back to Florence to look at Brunelleschi’s dome: if man’s genius has gone so far, then I too can and must try to create, act, live. ”
Discover the beauties of this city, with an expert bilingual guide who will tell you all the secrets of the cradle of the Renaissance.
You will visit the Cathedral dominating Florence with its marvelous dome, to this day the tallest building in the whole city. You will visit Piazza del Duomo, Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore and Piazza San Giovanni, along with the Baptistery: these monuments are located in a single large pedestrian area, stretching all the way to Piazza della Signoria and Ponte Vecchio.

If you wish, upon reservation, you can take a guided tour of the Uffizi Gallery, one of the largest museums in the world and one of the oldest galleries in Europe.
The Uffizi Gallery boasts an incomparable artistic heritage, with thousands of paintings from medieval to modern times, as well as miniatures, sculptures, tapestries, drawings and prints.
