Pisa is a city in the Tuscany region of Italy and is most famous for the iconic leaning tower; however there is plenty more city beyond the tower to discover and it is considered an architectural and artistic gem. The city is best explored on foot and the city centre is relatively small so travellers will easily soak up the rewarding sights and atmosphere.
Pisa is dominated by a student population attending the University of Pisa and the students often organise parties, shows and cultural events that everyone is welcome to join in. The city is split into four historical districts and there are several walking routes to explore them all, however the most famous is the Piazza dei Miracoli or Field of Miracles where you’ll discover such sites as; the Leaning Tower; with inspirational views over the city from its peak, the Cathedral of Pisa; boasting stunning Romanesque style architecture and beautiful artwork and the Baptistery; a large Romanesque style dome with a fantastic echo effect that definitely should not be missed.
Although there is a large student population, Pisa doesn’t have many all night clubs to cater to younger travellers, instead evenings are spent in peaceful bars and sampling Italian music and shows in stunning theatres, in addition to very popular Karaoke bars. Shopping in Pisa is centred on the Corso Italia area, however for hand crafted Italian goods it is best to explore the quaint boutiques scattered around the city and travellers must sample the Pisa Biscotti, available in bakeries throughout the area.
