About the Tour

Escape the typical tourist itineraries and experience Pisa like a Pisan! There is so much more to see here than the Leaning Tower.

The tour starts at Plaza Vittorio Emanuele II, which is a few meters from Pisa Central train station. From there, we’ll go to Keith Haring’s imposing "Tuttomondo" mural, a symbol of peace and harmony. We’ll walk along Corso Italia next. It’s one of the city’s most important streets, and it’ll lead us to the River Arno.

I’ll tell you about the history of Pisa along the way, to prepare you for the wonderful palaces that dominate the riverbank and the central Piazza Garibaldi with its stunning view. Borgo Stretto is next, then Piazza delle Vettovaglie where I’ll show you the old medieval tower houses and the gorgeous Piazza dei Cavalieri.

We’ll finish the tour with a boom at the Field of Miracles, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can admire the spectacular Leaning Tower of Pisa there, and I’m sure you’ll be impressed by the beauty of the Cathedral and the Baptistery.

Andrea - DiscoveryPisa

My name is Andrea and I am the founder of DiscoveryPisa. I was born in Madrid where I studied the degree of Tourism. However, I always wanted to live in Italy, so in 2008 I came to Pisa as a student of the Erasmus project to finish my degree. Pisa conquered me so much that I decided not to return to Madrid and stay here. A few years later, in 2012, I obtained my title of tourist guide of Pisa and province and few months later, together with my colleague Alessia, we decided to found DiscoveryPisa. Since 2012 I feel that I have the honor to guide tourists through Pisa and show them this wonderful city with a thousand places to discover, because Pisa is much more than the Leaning Tower!
