Bringing you a fantastic dose of history, this guided tour of the Piazza dei Miracoli or the Square of Miracles will leave you breathless. The UNESCO World Heritage site is considered to be one of the most stunning architectural complexes in the world and comprises of Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, the Pisa Baptistery of St. John, the Camposanto Monumentale and of course, the Campanile or the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
The Square, completed around the 19th century, is home to a spectacular display of Renaissance, Medieval and Gothic architecture, and is truly a sight for sore eyes. Central to religious life since the Etruscans, the structures represent various stages of our lives with the Baptistery signifying birth, the Cathedral as a symbol of life and the Camposanto alluding death. The Leaning Tower of Pisa does not take up any special significance as it is in actuality just the freestanding bell tower for the Cathedral although it definitely is quite the engineering feat.
As you stroll around the Square, feast your eyes on the spectacular monuments which act as a model for the very distinctive Pisan Romanesque style as our expert guides regales you with intriguing anecdotes about the “meadow of miracles”, especially the Leaning Tower. You can even upgrade your tour to include a ticket to the Leaning Tower of Pisa which lets you climb up to the top to savour some ravishing panoramas of the city. The tour is truly a treat for the senses and a dose of joy for the art enthusiast in you!
