History and urbanism
Pisa is linked with such illustrious names as Leonardo Pisano and Galileo Galilei, but it has also played its own part in history by being one of Italy’s four Maritime Republics which, in medieval times, along with Venice, Genoa and Amalfi, dominated the Mediterranean. In addition to the one that leans, Pisa also has another famous tower: the Torre della Fame (Tower of Hunger). This tower, where Count Ugolino della Gherardesca was imprisoned with his family, owes its fame to Dante who told the story in his Divine Comedy.
Walk along the banks of the Arno River in Pisa, following its path, and then lose yourself in places like Borgo Stretto, amid the streets of the historic town centre, with its alleyways crammed with shops and other establishments. Pisa is also near to the coast, and the Tuscan beaches of Marina di Pisa, Tirrenia, Calambrone and the Regional Park of Migliarino San Rossore are all within easy reach. If, on the other hand, you are passionate about trekking, then why not choose the Monti Pisani (Pisani Mountain), where you’ll be able to walk along paths surrounded by greenery and to climb the rocky walls.
A visit to Piazza del Duomo means you are already in Pisa’s most important centre of art and tourism, as well as a UNESCO World Heritage site. You’ll be able to take in Pisa’s grandiose monuments, the so-called “Miracles”: the Cathedral, the Baptistery, the Campo Santo (Monumental Cemetery) and the Bell Tower. There are so many different itineraries you can take to visit the city’s places of interest on foot. Then, after an exhausting day spent visiting the city, you will have the pleasure of laying your head on a comfortable pillow.
Pisa is alive and vibrant 365 days of the year, but above all it is in June that this Tuscan city is crammed with events during what is known as “Giugno Pisano” (Pisa's June)! The Luminara di San Ranieri, with its thousands of lit candles on buildings, monuments and churches, will provide you with magical, light-filled memories. Another not-to-be-missed event is the Historical Regatta and the traditional Gioco del Ponte (Battle on the Bridge) Pisa offers no shortage of opportunities for having fun!
