You need to be more specific. Which company did you hear about? There are hundreds out there.

You do realize that Pisa is roughly 400 miles round trip from Rome?

Th wildly optimistic google maps suggests your journey will take 7 hours by car.

Sorry, I believe it was jumplimousine.

Our grandson has his heart set on going to see Pisa, We would love it if we could get a tour to take us there.

You can go and come back by train without problems, it is long but doable. A limousine looks to me like an useless luxury for so long a journey. Also sitting so many hours in a car without being able to stand up would be not so comfortable.

I don't know where you are from, but I see that especially people coming from North or South America have often a car-centric idea of travelling. In Italy trains are efficient, rapid, comfortable and cheap. Of course, choose what you prefer, but don't underestimate train.

By train, you get a direct train from Rome Termini to Pisa Centrale. The 08.10 Frecciabianca takes 2.5 hours - see www.trenitalia.it/homepage_en.html entering '8' as the 'hour' of departure.

Economy fares may be available for your date if you select the train and Click Continue. Don't miss your booked train with these fares.

At Pisa Centrale station, there are Red Line (LAM Rossa) buses every 9 minutes to the tower (Torre) for €1.10. Taxis are also available.

Your grandson might find this more interesting and enjoyable than being cooped up in a limo. And you might find it more comfortable.

Make sure to book a time to go up the tower online http://boxoffice.opapisa.it/Torre/index.jsp It would be a shame to go all that way and not be able to climb it. Note that you must book at least 16 days in advance and children must be at least eight years old.

The answer is a year old. The 8.10 train now takes 15 minutes longer, and the bus fare may have changed.

Thanks for the update - it was more "how to do it" rather than costs at this stage, I can always follow up the actual timetables and costs - so thank you for your considerate information.
