Things to do here

There is more to Pisa than just its famous leaning tower. The city was a wealthy maritime power in the 11th-13th centuries and reminders of that Golden Age are dotted around the city in the form of perfectly maintained Romanesque buildings and Gothic churches. After taking the obligatory photo of you ‘pushing against’ the leaning tower make sure to explore Pisa outside the Piazza dei Miricoli where the tower and many of the other famous Pisa buildings reside. What you’ll find is a young and vibrant university town bristling with life, street events and cafes. The city also acts as a gateway to the olive groves and vineyards of Tuscany.

To Eat

  1. Pizzeria Il Montino is beloved by locals and tourists alike and offers a real taste of Italy. Try a foccaccine, a small flat roll filled with salami or porchetta.
  2. Peperosa is a small restaurant that has a passion for good food and wine. 

To Stay

  1. Located in the heart of Pisa, just a five minute walk to the leaning tower, Hotel Relais Dell’ Orologio is a restored and luxurious 14th century mansion.
