Top Attractions in Pisa
Pisa and its iconic monument are probably the most famous destination in Italy. The Leaning Tower is not the only attraction for the millions of tourists flocking here to visit it, but its fame has often gathered all the attention.
There is much more than that: the Cathedral, the Baptistery, the Monumental Cemetery will actually surprise you as much as the Tower. Pisa was an important Roman port and at in late Middle Age the most powerful city in the Mediterranean controlling more lands than Florence. This international spirit shaped its architectures and art, here you will discover some of the frescos that inspired Dante's Divine Comedy, and some the stunning sculptures that started to introduce the stylistic language of the Renaissance.
Are you interested in the Roman history and archeology? Pisa boasts now the best preserved antique roman ships collection in the world, in the newly restored Museum of Ancient Ships of Pisa.
So dont' believe your friend that stopped once for "just a picture" of the tower and left he probably missed the best stories of this incredible city.
