The Tuscany region

Pisa is one of the chief towns in the region of Tuscany, situated the on the alluvial plain of the River Arno, and is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Popular for its landing tower, Pisa is one of the most important historic and artistic places in Italy. Its name has uncertain origins: people often think it derives from the homonym Greek city of Elide, whose inhabitants found the Italian Pisa, just after the Trojan War. Other historians think it derives from the ancient Etruscan word used to say “outfall”. The most probable hypothesis is that it comes from the Ligurian dialect, “marshy place”.

A glorious past...

From the IX century, Pisa began stating its maritime vocation, fighting against the Muslims, then becoming a powerful Maritime Republic. It took actively part to the crusades, deducing extremely good economic advantages from the kings of Jerusalem.

During the XII century, Pisa had a very busy mercantile time all over the Mediterranean Sea: laying strong bases in Cyprus, Syria, Turkey and Egypt; maintaining good relationships with the Muslims and removing the competition with Amalfi, through the war.

The decline began at the end of XIII century when the city was defeated by the brilliant tactics of the Genoese fleet, in the dramatic naval Battle of Meloria. This defeat ended the maritime power of Pisa and the town never fully recovered: in 1290, the Porto Pisano (Pisa's Port) was destroyed forever and covered with salt by the Genoeses.

Pisa got definitively submitted to Florence after a long and bloody war, in 1509.

Not to be missed in Pisa

The Leaning Tower is surely the symbol of this city, but it is just one of the many works of art and architecture in Piazza dei Miracoli, that is the old town centre:

* The Dome, which was built between XI and XII century. The exterior in Romanesque style, has three bronze portals, arcs, columns and loggias and is decorated with statues. It keeps inside numerous works of art by Giambologna, Andrea del Sarto and many others; you will be also able to admire the wonderful fourteenth-century pulpit, called “pergamo”, by Giovanni Pisano.

* The baptistery, planned by Diotisalvi in 1152 and finished at the end of the following century by Nicola Pisano, has a very interesting portal decorated with fine reliefs.

* The leaning Tower, high 60 almost metres, is the bell-tower of Piazza del Duomo from which you'll have a gorgeous view of the entire city. The Tower was built in 1173, but after only 12 years (1185), there were the first signs of downfall of the ground, that caused its inclination and stopped any works on the third floor. The works restarted in 1275, under the supervision of Giovanni di Simone and finished in second half of the XIV century.

Just above the main door there was a sculpture representing the Virgin Mary with the Infant Jesus. Throughout the ages the tower has been object of innumerable stabilization works, in order to reduce its gradient.

* Camposanto Monumentale is a very impressive building, with innumerable works of art: Roman sarcophagi, scupltures, famous frescos and epigraphs by artists like Bonaiuti and Veneziano.

* Church of Santa Maria della Chiesa, built in the XIII century, on the bank of River Arno, it represents one of the maximum masterpieces of the Roman-Gothic art. It got totally dismantled and rebuilt, sheltered from the water. The church is splendidly decorated with external arcs, triple lancet and four-lights windows, pinnacles and spires. Inside you be pleased to admire the fantastic Pisano's sculptures.

* Palazzo dell'Orologio – Clock Building – has an original façade, with a big arc created and planned by Vasari in 1607, in order to put together two pre-existing buildings. The Palazzo was built on the remains of the sadly famous “torre della Muda” or “tower of the hunger”, where died the count Ugolino della Gherardesca, mentioned into the Dante's Inferno.

Pisa has plenty of marvellous museums as well as restaurants and bars. You will easily find events and things to do, in order to fully enjoy the beauty of this unforgettable place...

Typical dishes

The Pisan cuisine offers land and sea specialities and some particular recipes, like: the “soup of white St Michele's beans”, “bavettine sul pesce” (special flattened spaghetti, seasoned with a lovely fish sauce), “soup of mussels” served on slices of Tuscan bread, “soup of frogs”. Among the seconds, you will easily find succulent dishes pheasants, boars, coots, rabbits and ducks based.

One of the typical dessert is “torta coi vischeri”, a delicious cake with pine-seeds, raisin, chocolate and and candy citrus. The best local wines are: Chianti delle Colline Pisane, Montescudaio and Montecarlo.

Ghizzano

Immersed into the verdant countryside surrounding Pisa, halfway between Pisa and Florence, close by Volterra, as part of the beautiful park of Alta Valdera lies Ghizzano, an hamlet of Peccioli.

It is a rural centre that still reveals the ancient original architecture. Something you cannot miss is the palace and villa of Counts Venerosi Pesciolini surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and the Pisan hills and a great Italian style garden. The notable chapel annexed to the rural church of St Gennaro preserves two stunning holy icons dating back to the XV century, of Pisan school, which portrait the Annunciation.

From Ghizzano, you will be able to do daily excursions to some of the most suggestive villages in Tuscany, like: Volterra, Lucca, Monteriggioni, San Gimignano as well as many lesser known hamlets like Peccioli, Montecatini, San Miniato, and Palaia. You can even opt for van transport to the ferry headed to the Island of Elba where to spend the day on bike or moped exploring this fantastic island.
