Pisa surroundings

The foundation of Pisa has its roots in the period of classical Greece, when some Trojans, fleeing from the tragic defeat against Agamemnon’s troops, took refuge in these fertile and lush lands.

Crisscrossed by the Arno River, even in more remote corners it is possible to glimpse reminders of history, art and beauty.

Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Piazza dei Miracoli is home to the city’s most important monuments (Tower, Cathedral, Baptistery and Monumental Cemetery).

A center of excellence in the field of research, Pisa is home to one of the world’s most prestigious universities founded in 1343; the Scuola Normale Superiore, commissioned by Napoleon in the early 19th century.

A young city, frequented by students from all over Europe and beyond, characterized by a sparkling nightlife, it is a city in constant evolution.

#To be seen

Piazza dei Miracoli, la Torre e il Museo dell’opera del Duomo

Piazza dei Miracoli is one of Italy’s most beautiful squares, co-designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, located at the city walls. It includes four monuments of medieval art known, however, for a modern style called Pisan Romanesque: the Tower of Pisa, Duomo, Baptistery and Camposanto.

Museo Nazionale di Palazzo Reale

The Royal Palace has been the Pisan residence of three dynasties: the Medici, Lorraine and Savoy. It retains the appearance of a patrician residence, furnishings and beautiful collections of portraits, tapestries and armor. 

#Funfacts e curiosities

Galileo Galilei was from Pisa and took advantage of the Tower’s inclination for some scientific experiments on falling bodies. The Pisan scientist discussed the fall of gravi with colleagues and schoolchildren with empirical evidence from the Campanile, and even some posthumous reconstructions of the incident are exaggerated. This fact is not a legend as has been attempted over the years. In practice, Galilei with his experiments from the Tower proved that the acceleration of gravi is constant regardless of the weight of the falling object.

Unique experiences

Take a boat and make the Lungarni route: there are four scheduled stops; equally impressive is the San Rossore line with two stops. You can admire the Migliarino, San Rossore and Massaciuccoli Nature Park on the coastal strip of the provinces of Pisa and Lucca.
