This charming city reached the height of its power in the 11th century as one of the four historic Maritime Republics of Italy.
Whether you’re planning a day trip as part of a tour of Italy or staying for a few days, there are plenty of things to do in Pisa, including, of course, the famous Leaning Tower. After a tour of the Piazza dei Miracoli with the Leaning Tower, cathedral, and baptistery, take in some of the historic sights and museums like the Piazza dei Cavalieri, the Santo Sepolcro, and the Museo delle Sinopie.
Fans of shopping will find many boutiques and department stores at the Corso Italia, and the restaurants along the riverbanks provide a picturesque setting for a post-shopping meal. Car hire services in Pisa make it easy to explore nearby Cinque Terre, Florence, and the central Tuscan countryside.
