Piazza dei Miracoli, Pisa, 56126

The Basics

Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles), also known as Piazza del Duomo (Cathedral Square), attracts throngs of visitors snapping pictures of the Leaning Tower, but the square is home to much more than this iconic landmark. The magnificent Duomo and baptistery are splendid examples of Pisan Romanesque architecture, the Monumental Cemetery (Camposanto Monumentale) is home to a pretty central courtyard and 14th-century frescoes, and the Opera del Duomo Museum holds an important collection of religious art.

This public square is one of the most popular destinations in Tuscany and is very crowded in the summer. Booking a skip-the-line Piazza dei Miracoli tour ahead of time helps avoid a long wait and enjoy priority admission to the cathedral, baptistery, and bell tower. Consider a Leaning Tower family tour if traveling with kids, or pair your Piazza dei Miracoli visit with a walking or bike tour of Pisa’s other attractions.

Really enjoyed the tour of the Leaning tower of Pisa and the church. We climbed the tower. This was a lot of fun. It was nice to go on a bus and be able to leave unnecessary things on the bus rather than having to check them at the tower. Also, didn’t have to worry about pick pockets on the bus as opposed to the train station!

Being able to climb up the bell tower with the family, and take pictures around the place. Fun day and was not cut short by mandatory tour of the church. That was also interesting, but bring allowed to have boys explore the tower more important e them.

The tower of Pisa is an impressive sight. The guide is a local who has a passion for his area, his country and his language. We were allowed to go up the tower, which was fun. I'm glad I went.

The bus was clean and nice, the guides helpful and knowledgeable and Piza was great. Make sure you eat before you get to the bus stop. There is no food or shelter there.
