We will also treat you to a small tasting and a glass of the famous local wine, so you can have a true flavor of what Tuscany is about! We will then drive to our last destination, Pisa, for a chance to see the most famous bell tower in the world (from the outside) and the magnificent complex around it, also known as Square of Miracles.
Along the way, your English-speaking Tour Leader will be explaining you about Pisa, its history and will be available for any questions and assistance you may need. The Duomo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and Baptistery are architectural masterpieces, and you will be able to admire the elaborated medieval facades, the frescoes and the marble patterns which decorate them. Your Tour Leader will escort you to the entrance of the Cathedral and will provide for a ticket for it.
You will then enjoy the free time at the Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles) to take some pictures of the complex and the unusual bell tower. The tower owes the bizarre tilted position to the fact that the ground on which is built is soft and was unable to support its foundation.
