Pisa, a Tuscan city know mainly for its leaning tower but also for its friendly hospitality, is positioned at the mouth of the River Arno on the Tyrrhenian Sea. An important naval base in ancient Roman times, modern Pisa is a lively university town, proud of its heritage and its modern contributions to Italian culture. Surrounded by historic walls, the best way to see what Pisa’s central area has to offer is by walking. The half hour stroll from the Campo dei Miracoli to the train station runs through a pedestrian street with a variety of interesting sights, shops, and restaurants. Soak up the atmosphere, visit the top attractions, and then head out for a drive to see what else the region can add to your holiday.
Must see attractions in Pisa
The Leaning Tower of Pisa must be one of the world’s most iconic - and most photographed - buildings of all time so no stay would be complete without a trip to see it’s strangely angled structure. The tower is housed in the Piazza dei Miracoli (known as both the Cathedral Square and the Square of Miracles) and it is actually the bell tower of the city’s cathedral. The leaning tower measures 55.86 m from the ground on the low side and 56.70m on the high side – a disproportionate lean of almost 4 metres! Did you know that there are also two other leaning towers in the city? One is situated at the southern end of central Via Santa Maria, and the other sits halfway along the Piagge riverside promenade; not as impressive but certainly worth a peek.
Pisa is also home to more than twenty historic churches, a multitude of palaces and some beautiful
bridges that cross the River Arno. Visit the Knights'
Square (Piazza dei Cavalieri), to view the impressive
façade of the Palazzo della Carovana. Venture into the Borgo
Stretto area to meander the medieval streets and then marvel at
the Lungarno avenues skirting the river. Make sure you visit the
Gothic-Romanesque church of San Michele in Borgo. If you like
flowers and gardens, stop by the Orto botanico di Pisa, Europe's
oldest botanical garden housed within a university and the
perfect place for a relaxing stroll. The town hall, adorned with
interior frescoes of early sea victories, is a lovely 14th
century gothic building and a good example of architecture of
