- Leaning Tower of Pisa: View the iconic freestanding tilted bell tower of the Pisa Cathedral. The tower began to sink when the second floor was added in 1178.

About this Livorno Tour
Just a short 40-minute ride from the port of Livorno lies the breathtaking city of Pisa. Jump ship and join this on your own GoBe tour for a trip back in time to the height of Pisa's power. On this incredible journey, you'll take in the city's architectural wonders and learn its rich history.
Your tour coach or van will transport you to Pisa as your escort relates information all about the city and gives you tips for how to use your free time there. You'll find yourself in the heart of old Pisa in no time, a short walk from the UNESCO World Heritage site, the Piazza dei Miracoli. Stop for a moment and take in the four religious structures that have sanctified this space for hundreds of years.
The first thing your eye will be drawn to is the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the site that has come to symbolize the city for people across the world. The tower is actually the bell tower for the adjacent cathedral, an impressive building in its own right. The baptistery next door is the largest in Italy. The fourth sacred structure on the Square of Miracles is the Monumental Cemetery. Take your time to wander the grassy piazza and maybe visit these buildings, educating yourself on the values of the Pisan past that could only be expressed through substantial architecture.
Who knows, you may even experience a miracle yourself as you roam the Piazza dei Miracoli. What is certain is that you will come back to your cruise ship with a deeper appreciation for the magic of Tuscany.
They didn't mean for it to lean
The city of Pisa is best known for its leaning tower. The tower's famous tilt, however, was never intentional. It most likely leans because it was built on unstable soil. Pisa's tower, though the most iconic, is not the most out-of-kilter tower in Europe. Before it was stabilized in the 1990s, however, there was some concern that the leaning tower could become the falling tower. Thankfully, efforts to stop the tower's lean have halted its downward motion. For now. You may still get dizzy looking down from the tilted top after climbing almost 300 stairs.
Please meet your GoBe guide, carrying a GoBe sign, within the Piazza del Municipio, in Livorno.
