Description

Join me on this live-streamed, interactive Online Experience and get ready to walk around a group of imposing monuments that have universally been made famous by the presence of the Leaning Tower. You will be impressed to discover that these artistic masterpieces are located in an open area: a large emerald-colored meadow near the walls that surround the ancient city.
We will admire the Cathedral and the Baptistery with all their decorative details and enjoy the fascinating variations of lights and shadows on their surfaces: simple volumes, overlapping arches, precious geometric inlays, mosaics, bronze objects, and decorative sculptures of the highest quality. We will talk about the famous mathematician Galileo Galilei, born in Pisa in 1564.
I will show you the bronze doors at the entrance of the facade of the Cathedral which depicts episodes of the life of Jesus with simplicity and effectiveness. We will stop by a strange marble slab with small black holes, known as “the devil’s scratches”. And of course, I will explain to you the biggest enigma of Pisa: why did the architects build a leaning tower? And how is it still standing?

We will end the tour by the Putti Fountain with its Baroque angel sculptures, an incredible spot to get a picturesque view of the square as a whole!

Chiara Grassotti

I was born in Pisa and raised in a small town in the countryside, where my family and I owned a small farm. In 2013, I became a licensed Tour Guide of Pisa. One of the aspects I love most about my job is leaving a never-ending impression of my city. I enjoy telling people stories about local saints, myths, and legends, which made Pisa's past glorious. My motto is: each person we meet gives us a mission and if you accept it and believe it, you can change the world.

From USD 31 / Screen
