Pisa is first of all famous for its artistic and architectural treasures. However, it is often associated only with the Leaning Tower and therefore, underrated.
On the contrary, Pisa is a city of great history and of an enormous artistic wealth: it is much more than its famous tower.
Of course, the Field of Miracles, with the Duomo, the Baptistry, the Monumental Cemetery and the Tower are definitely a must see. The Museum of the Duomo and the Museum of the Sinopie preserve incredible treasures.Pisa is well worth a stay longer than just the few hours necesary to see these monuments though.There are Roman ruins which are well worth a visit, and soon the museum of the Roman ships will be open to the public.
The medieval heart of Pisa, with the lovely vegetable market, is unique and it hosts some of the best restaurants and bars in town.
Pisa the Maritime Republic and the Renaissance city are wonderful as well, even if definitely less known.isa is home to the oldest botanic garden in Europe, and it has beautiful gardens and parks.
Pisa is the city of contemporary art thanks to one of the last important murals by Keith Haring.
Pisa is the city of churches and of ancient libraries.
Pisa is the city of science and culture.
Pisa is a city which well deserves more than 2 or 3 hours of your time: discover it walking, bike through the little streets of the historical centre, go for a one-horse carriage ride or take the tour of the Lungarni by boat.
Convenient starting point to spend a pleasant day at the beach, on the beautiful beaches of Marina di Pisa, to visit Florence, Livorno, Lucca, Siena and Volterra.
Marina di Pisa is set in wonderful scenery: the curved shoreline of San Rossore Estate and the outline of the Apuan Alps, with the horizon that seems to dive right into the blue waters of the sea. The urban fabric of Marina di Pisa features many Art Nouveau buildings overlooking large squares looking out to sea and backed by pine woods. ...
The district of San Giusto is a very quiet area with little traffic, just a kilometer from the airport and the central train station. The bakery is in front of the house, two supermarkets a few tens of meters. You can hire bikes (very convenient to move around freely in the city and in the center)
The Province of Pisa is located in central-western Tuscany, covering a stretch of coastline, wide plains and rolling hills that include the Colline Metallifere to the South.
The coastline is made up of extensive beaches surrounded by high dunes and fresh pinewoods, and is home to renowned tourist resorts such as Marina di Pisa and Tirrenia.
The inland landscapes vary, depending on the area's natural features; they assume varying forms and colors, espeically when one arrives at the spectacular badlands that speak to the erosion phenomena that characterizes Volterrano and Val di Cecina. Another extraordinary and striking landscape is that of the famous geysers of Larderello.
Among the numerous protected areas, the Parco Naturale Migliarino San Rossore-Massacciucoli is especially important. Located in close proximity to the coast, it is made up of woods, wetlands and a great variety of Mediterranean vegetation; it is home to animal species such as boars, foxes and deer.
The Berignone and Monterufoli Forests, in the areas of Volterrana and Alta Val di Cecina, constitute two vast wooded zones bountiful with plant and animal species.
The thermal springs of Casciana, San Giuliano and Uliveto have served as hot springs spas for health and wellness since time immemorial.
Archaeological finds are sprinkled all over this splendid and changing landscape, from Romanesque architecture and historical villages to the magnificent city of Pisa with its Leaning Tower and other fascinating monuments.
Traditions, cuisine, wines and spas are waiting to be discovered in this unique territory.
