If Pisa is known for anything, it is The Leaning Tower. Built in around 1372, the building only slightly leans, an event that took place centuries ago because of the liquefaction of the surface below. More than anything, a climb to the top is worthwhile to savor the view of the city.

It is also located in the same Piazza del Duomo that houses The Leaning Tower of Pisa and as a matter of fact, it, too, leans a certain degree. It was here that Galileo was baptized.

The Cathedral of Pisa

Located en route to the Leaning Tower, the Knights Square is often overlooked. However, its architecture and spacious extents hold the history of the knights, including St. Stephen.

Also known as the High Street of Pisa, Corso Italia is lined with souvenir shops and everything good in between. It’s located just off the Cathedral Square and the bell tower.

Torre Guelfa

Torre Guelfa was originally built to control the river traffic into the city. Today, it stands as a rusted building, offering spectacular views, and an arsenal of coats of arms of Pisan families.

La Pergoletta

Located in Via delle Belle Torri, Pisa, it’s hard to beat La Pergoletta – a small trattoria that offers lovely meals from pasta to seafood and an amazing service. Well maintained toilets and wheelchair access are a plus.

Walk along the Riverbanks
