Pisa is known for the Leaning Tower, but it is not the only one reason to visit this wonderful city. We are going to advise you the must-see places to do a one day visit, but obviously if you can remain more days you will have other beautiful things to see and enjoy.
Piazza Vittorio Emanuele
Piazza Vittorio Emanuele is the administrative core of the city. The square has a shape very similar to an amphitheatre and it is surrounded by a open pedestrian route full of shops. Continue walking and you will enter in Corso Italia, the most important street of Pisa.
Lungarno Galilei & Lungarno Mediceo
You can go always straight ahead until you arrive next to the Arno, turn on your right before crossing it and you will be in the famous Lungarno Galilei. The so called lungarni are the roads that run just along the Arno river. Along the street there are many restaurants and cafes where you can have a break.
Along the other side of the Arno, in complementarity with the Lungarno Galilei, runs the Lungarno Mediceo. Commonly known for the Medici Palace and for the National Museum, today home of the most important italian works of art.
Piazza dei Cavalieri & The Square of Miracles
Continue walking and you will finally arrive in Piazza dei Cavalieri, a square always crowded by people and university students. This piazza is also home of the prestigious Scuola Normale, one of the best university in Italy.
Straight ahead, after have passed Piazza dei Cavalieri, you will enter in the Square of Miracles, where you will be impressed and catched by the fabulous Leaning Tower with the Baptistery and the Cathedral. Here we really recommend to climb to the top of the Tower, an absolutely amazing experience. Also the Cathedral worth a visit, a typical example of Pisan and Romanesque architecture.
Just some other steps and you will find the Botanical Garden of Pisa, a very relaxing destination that brings a bit of nature in this artistic itinerary. A perfect finish to this one day trip in one of the best cities in Italy and in the world. Hope you will have appreciated it!
