Project Description

Pisa: Medieval City Wall

Tour Details



On top of the medieval city wall, we will walk around the city enjoying it from a very special – and high! – point of view (11 meters/36 feet). A journey of about 3.5 Km (about 2 miles) which starts from Piazza Dei Miracoli, where the Leaning Tower is located, and moves along the west-east side. We will pass by the Roman ancient baths, the Brunelleschi bastion, the ex Marzotto factory (today the Mathematic and Physics department of the University of Pisa) and continue up to the square of Gondolas. We will discover unexpected places, parks, and gardens of delights and we will finish our walk along the Arno river.

The route can also be done backward, or reduced, according to the type of itinerary (there are 4 access/exit points).

The tour can be combined with a visit to the city or the Piazza Dei Miracoli.
