A Drive Through the Tuscan Countryside to Pisa

Passing through rolling hills, beautiful vineyards, and picturesque little towns, you'll travel the the ancient city of Pisa. Did you know that this is the birthplace of Galileo? According to an ancient myth, Pisa was founded by refugees that came from a Greek city called Pisa in the Valley of the river Alfeo. This is why locals in Pisa are commonly called “alfei”. Here, your driver will park up in a convenient spot for you to explore this attractive Italian city.

Climb the Leaning Tower of Pisa

It may be cheesy, but snapping a photo holding up the tower is simply a must-do when you're in Italy! Today you'll get more than just a picture though, and we'll pre-book your skip-the-line tickets to actually climb the famous tower. These tickets aren't that easy to come by, but don't worry, we'll make sure you tick climbing the Leaning Tower of Pisa off your bucket-list!

Built in the 12th century celebrating victory after a conquest of Palermo, medieval Pisa was a powerful city-state. Unaware of the lack of stability on the marshy hill, the great tower took over 200 years to build but was not intended to be at an angle. Perhaps they should have known—the word “Pisa” comes from the Greek word for “marshy land”—but the architects' mistake turned out to be a gift to the world.

Had it stayed straight up, few would visit the impressive landmark today. Experience the Tower in person, taking in the grandeur and uniqueness of this accidental world icon. Now reinforced to maintain at a stable tilt, the Leaning Tower has become one of Italy's most famous sites, and it's constantly monitored to ensure that it's completely safe to climb.

Pisa Cathedral and the Piazza dei Miracoli

Built along with the Tower over 800 years ago, Pisa is centered around the gorgeous Piazza dei Miracoli. Known as the "field of miracles" in English, the grand square of Pisa is an impressive space on its own, and even more impressive with the beautifully constructed Renaissance-era architecture that surrounds it.

Across the square from the Leaning Tower is great Cattedrale di Pisa—one of Italy's most impressive churches. Alongside the cathedral, the stunning Baptistery and Monumental Cemetery are also sights to behold.

Discover the Birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci

Next, visit the small medieval village of Vinci, the birthplace of the famous Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci. Feel the power of its history as you trace the footsteps of the man who changed the world with both his art and inventions. Explore a 1,000-year-old monastery and take a walk surrounded by centuries-old olive trees. You'll walk the same streets that Leonardo once did, and can enjoy a Tuscan lunch in one to Vinci's excellent local trattorias.

The cost of lunch is not included in the price of the tour, but we're happy to book a restaurant for you in advance. 

Visit the Da Vinci Museum

As part of your private day trip from Florence, we'll pre-book your tickets for the Da Vinci Museum dedicated to the great man himself. Da Vinci was an Italian Renaissance polymath whose areas of interest included astronomy, architecture, botany, cartography, engineering, invention, mathematics, music, and more. Located inside a former castle, you’ll learn about the paintings, inventions and machines accredited to one of the greatest Renaissance figures. Then, climb to the top of the Vinci tower for an unforgettable view over Vinci and Tuscany! The museum is an extremely family-friendly place, with many interactive machines that both adults and kids can play with.

Piazzale Michelangelo and San Miniato Monastery in Florence

After the Da Vinci Museum, return to your comfortable private vehicle and drive back to Florence to visit the 1,000-year-old San Miniato Monastery and Piazzale Michelangelo, where you'll experience and incredible view over the iconic rooftops of Florence and the famous Brunelleschi Dome on the Florence Cathedral. After that, your private driver will drop you off at your hotel and say farewell. This tour is perfect for travelers that want to experience the best of Italy without the stress of figuring everything out by themselves. This is also for those who want to get off the beaten path and see things that are difficult to reach by foot.

Great Tour, needs some adjustments for Covid considerations

We were very excited for our Day Trip. Overall it was a good day and we were able to see multiple things we wouldn't have been able to see on our own. However I think this tour needs to be re-evaluated with respect to covid regulations. In Pisa, we were given an hour to see the Tower and the Cathedral. However, with the timings of the tower climb and the line to go up due to covid capacity we only had enough time to climb up and down the tour and take a few photos on the grounds. We unfortunately weren't able to go into the Cathedral. Next, was Vinci, which is an adorable little town. We had a delicious lunch at one of the local restaurants and walked the upper terrace of the grounds around the Leonardo Da Vinci Museums. However, our time slot into the museum was pushed an hour due to covid cleaning, which ended up delaying the rest of our afternoon. Also, we were given an hour to see the museum. My wife and I are true museum people who love to take our time and truly read and look at what is on display. The museum has two buildings and A LOT of information to read and models, artwork to look at. So we felt like we had to rush through the displays and couldn't enjoy what the museum had to offer in order to keep on our schedule. I would suggest that for future bookings, the client be asked if they would like extra time padded into the itinerary for the museum. The last two stops were in Florence outside of downtown. The Monastery was beautiful but wish we had about 10-15 more minutes (we had 20). Last was the Piazza Michelangelo where we were able to soak in the beauty of Florence and our tour guide took some nice photos of us. This tour was good but could be great if it just had more buffer time worked in. I think 9 hours would have been more appropriate than 7 hours.

You can't go to Italy and not see the Leaning Tower of Pisa! This day trip was perfect for my girlfriend and I. We had roundtrip transportation there and back and we got to see the Da Vinci Museum which was pretty cool. The best part was trying to line up our hands correctly for the perfect picture "holding up the tower". People all over the lawn in front of it were doing the same. It's a lot harder than it looks! But a very fun experience.
