Piazza dei Miracoli

Four of Italy's most iconic edifices converge at the Piazza del Miracoli, or the Piazza Del Duomo, in Pisa. The name was coined by poet Gabriele D'Annunzio, and the square is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The startling bent of the Tower of Pisa invites exclamations of surprise alongside the awe-inspiring magnificence of the majestic Duomo, the ornate Baptistry and the sculpture-rich Cemetery nearby. Together, these form one of the country's most revered collections of Medieval architecture, their influence visible across Italy in the various works of master artists. Richly embellished with sculpted niches, exquisite artwork and detailed ornamentation, delicate columns and graceful arches abound. Beloved by art lovers, history buffs and the average tourist alike, the Piazza Del Duomo is the epitome of monumental architecture that has captured the imagination of people across the globe.

Baptistery of St. John

The Baptistery of St. John (Battistero di San Giovanni) is the largest in Italy. Its construction spanned over two centuries, beginning in 1152 and reflecting a fascinating transition from Romanesque to Gothic architectural styles. This magnificent structure towers at a height of approximately 54 meters and boasts a circumference of 107 meters. Constructed entirely of marble, the Baptistery features a statue of John the Evangelist gracing its peak. Inside, you can marvel at a collection of artworks spanning the Romanesque and early Renaissance periods. These include the renowned pulpit by Nicola Pisano, a pioneer of the Italian Renaissance, alongside works by other masters like Italo Griselli and Guido Bigarelli da Como. A must-visit for those who are passionate about the past.

Chiesa di Santa Maria della Spina

Situated on the left bank of the Arno River, Chiesa di Santa Maria della Spina is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture, dating back to around 1230. Its construction was initially undertaken to house a revered relic, a thorn believed to have originated from the crown worn by Jesus. The church is renowned for its ornate facade adorned with intricate sculptures and colorful marble. Despite its small size, its exterior boasts several artistic details including delicate traceries, towering pinnacles, and depictions of saints and biblical scenes. Although the interior no longer serves as a venue for regular religious services, it occasionally hosts temporary art exhibitions.

Leaning Tower of Pisa

Tier upon tier of arches and columns, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, or Torre pendente, is one of the world's most recognizable landmarks. Located in Pisa's magnificent Piazza del Duomo, the Tower is a campanile that belongs to the cathedral nearby, complete with seven bells, one for each note of the musical scale. Shortly after construction began, the structure began to lean to one side due to an inadequate foundation. Over time, the angle of the tilt grew more extreme until conservation efforts in the early 2000s stabilized the foundation to prevent collapse. Today, the Tower leans at an angle of 3.99-degrees, a minor tilt yet unmistakable and obvious given the monument's magnanimous size. Having survived centuries without correction, the Leaning Tower of Pisa is deemed by many to be a miracle; an icon that attracts thousands to its base. The view from the top is reputed to be one of spectacular beauty and well worth the climb up its 296 steps.

Piazza dei Cavalieri

Piazza dei Cavalieri, or Knights' Square, is a landmark square, steeped in history. The city's political heart in medieval times, it later transformed into the headquarters of the prestigious Knights of St. Stephen during the 16th century. The square's centerpiece is the Palazzo dei Cavalieri which is decorated with intricate sgraffito designs and sculptures of the Medici Grand Dukes. Today, this imposing palace houses the Scuola Normale Superiore, a renowned Pisa higher learning institution. With a long-standing history, Piazza dei Cavalieri remains a captivating landmark that warrants a visit when in Pisa.

Borgo Stretto

Borgo Stretto is a historic and vibrant district known for its narrow, winding streets lined with medieval towers and traditional shops. This area, once the city's political and commercial center, boasts a rich history dating back to the Middle Ages. Today, the streets are dotted with an array of boutiques selling everything from artisanal goods and souvenirs to fresh produce and delicious Tuscan delicacies. Art lovers can admire the architecture, while cafes and restaurants offer delightful delicacies that offer a taste of the local flavor. With so much to offer, this place must be on your bucket list of attractions.
