Choosing the Best Day Tour to Pisa from Florence
Pisa is most famous for the iconic leaning tower of Pisa but has a lot of other interesting and historically important sights. On the same square, named Square of Miracles (Piazza dei Miracoli), where the leaning tower is situated, you can find the main cathedral of the city (Duomo), the Baptistry and the monumental cemetery (Campo Santo). Apart from the four mentioned sacred buildings, lots of other sights are situated in other parts of Pisa, which will give you insights of the rich cultural heritage of Pisa.
Pisa is very close to Florence, only about 90 km and it takes about 1.5 hours to reach it by car or bus. This means that you have the option to visit Pisa and explore its main attractions and be back in Florence in less then 6 hours -> and have the rest of the day to spend in Florence. If you have more time there are options for longer tours which will take you to other sights other then Pisa which is more recommended if you have enough time.
Another important thing to note is that some tours include a ticket to climb the leaning tower of Pisa. The ticket itself costs about 20 € so it's something to consider when choosing a tour. You can buy the ticket yourself on the spot but if you definitely want to climb the tower, we suggest to save time and buy the ticket in advance.
Here we listed all the options and highlighted the important aspects which can help you decide which tour is more suitable for you.
