Pisa (Italy)

Pisa Travel Guide and Trip Resources


Look beyond the Leaning Tower

It is quite obvious what this town draws its fame from, as its name has become synonymous with the Leaning Tower (Torre Pendente) of Pisa. This 56 meter bell tower belongs to the cathedral of Pisa and was completed back in the fourteenth century. Upon completion it already tilted to the side.

By all means explore the Piazza dei Miracoli with the tower and Cathedral on it, and take your picture pretending to hold the tower back, but don't leave as soon as you are done with that and overlook the remainder of Pisa. The town is a university city (60,000 students in a town of less than 100,000), making it more lively than it would perhaps otherwise have been. The remainder of the town is just as picturesque, if not more as it is less filled to the brim with tourists, and offers plenty of interesting sights as well as places to eat and drink.
