One of the most famous destinations in Italy, there's a lot more to do in this Medieval city than just a selfie with the (amazing) Torre di Pisa
The famous Leaning Tower of Pisa can also be easily reached from Florence either with a 1h30 drive or in about an hour by train (beware, not the fastest, nor the most elegant ones).
Loved by tourists from all over the world for its peculiar tilt, the Tower of Pisa is, in reality, the bell tower of the Cathedral, which stands in a unique monumental context, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site: Piazza dei Miracoli.
Piazza dei Miracoli
Here, after the unmissable ascent of the Tower, you can visit the Cathedral itself, the Baptistery, the Cemetery, the Palazzo dell’Opera of the Cathedral and the Sinopie Museum.
The Arno River and the century-old University
Once you’ve completed your visit to this unbelievable square, if you have a little time left, you can relax with a walk along the Arno to the historic centre and Piazza dei Cavalieri, the political fulcrum of medieval Pisa. Facing onto the square is Palazzo della Carovana, with graffiti by Giorgio Vasari, which today houses the Scuola Normale Superiore, one of the most prestigious universities in the world.
