Pisa is one of Italy’s tourism gems, as travellers from across the globe flock to the city to snap a Gram-worthy shot with its eponymous leaning tower.
Whilst the Leaning Tower of Pisa is the main drawcard of the town, travellers delight on arrival to find that it is part of a greater section of stunning buildings and wondrous history.
So, what are some of the awesome experiences you can enjoy in one day in beautiful Pisa? Let’s take a look at some below…
Well, uh hum, the Leaning Tower, of course
Yes, the Leaning Tower of Pisa is the city’s main attraction, a bizarre, oddly-angled tower that draws in travellers looking to snag a spot to grab an awesome pic with the tower.
Situated in the Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles), the tower is as much an amazing sight to see as it is a wonderful place to get an Insta pic. What makes it even better is that you can climb up to the top of the tower, but if you’re prone to a spell of vertigo it might be worth a miss!
The other amazing sites of the Piazza dei Miracoli
As previously mentioned, the Piazza dei Miracoli is home to a wealth of wonderful religious buildings, rounding out a wonderful trip to see the famed tower. Here, the beautiful Pisa’s Cathedral and the Campo Santo Cemetery all coexist in one massive, sublime square.
Enjoy delicious local cuisine
Because no wonderful Italian town is complete without world class cuisine, right? Pisa is a town in Tuscany, after all, and Tuscany, as well as being famed for its art and architecture, is a region of top Italian cuisine.
Pisa is renowned for its specialist dishes like double-baked biscotti as well as pici pasta, a thick hand-rolled pasta synonymous with Tuscany. All you have to do is duck down one of the city’s charming laneways and you’ll find yourself a bar, cafe or trattoria ready to serve up some of their sumptuous food!
Check out a fine art museum
After those wonderful experiences, you would think the day is nearly done, right? Wrong! As you can fit in a visit to one of Pisa’s incredible art galleries. The National Museum of San Matteo and Sinopie Museum are two great options, with both housing works from some of Italy’s (and history’s) most famous masters
