     Attractions 


Pisa is famous worldwide for the beautiful monuments in the Field of
Miracles, the best known of which is the Leaning Tower, one of the 7
wonders of the world, which has become the symbol of the city.

Besides being a beautiful city to explore and enjoy slowly, Pisa is
also an excellent base to explore Northern Tuscany. Pisa's "Galileo
Galilei" airport offers a large number of international and national
flights operated by national airlines and low-cost airlines, which
allow tourists to fly to Pisa at very reasonable prices.

Pisa has a very conveniently located railway station which is a
crucial stop along the Tyrrhenic coastal railway line and which offers
very easy access to beautiful cities, like Florence and Lucca.

For these reasons, a car is not absolutely necessary. However, if you
come by car or decide to rent one, Pisa is an excellent base to
explore western, northern and central Tuscany.

Pisa is not only the Leaning Tower: it is a very lively and beautiful
city with an ancient history which has much to offer to the curious
tourist.

Just like Florence, it is built along the river Arno, which reaches
the sea only few kilometres from the city.

Pisa dates back to the Etruscan era and is an important testimonial to
the glorious history of Tuscany. It was, in fact, one of the four
Maritime Republics, together with Genoa, Amalfi and Venice.


It is a city of art, but also a city of humanistic culture and
science. It was the hometown of Galileo Galilei and nowadays the
University of Pisa, Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, Scuola Superiore
Sant'Anna di Pisa and the CNR (National Research Centre) are four of
the most important and prestigious cultural institutions in Italy and
in the entire world.


Pisa has a very lively theatre and many cinemas. Many shows are staged
every year, and numerous concerts as well as the many important
exhibitions and conferences bring a large number of visitors to the
city throughout the year.


The museums and the architectural beauty of the city attract the
attention of people from all over the world.
