Once appreciated the leaning tower of Pisa from all angles (including, if you will, the classic pictures that pretend to support her …), continue your visit to the other monuments in the square: the Cathedral and the Baptistery. Along the perimeter of the square you will also find the graveyard, the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo and the Museo delle Sinopie.
Enjoy a nice walk along the Arno River and reach even the ancient clock Palace and Piazza dei Cavalieri was once a place where he centralized power in the city and then seat of the order Knights of Santo Stefano. In the Palazzo della Carovana overlooking the square is also the prestigious Scuola Normale of Pisa.
Another thing to do in Pisa? The cecina that is a kind of very thin savoury cake made with chickpea flour, oil, salt and water. You eat alone or inside a muffin. A tidbit!
Every year in June in Pisa traditional events occur related to the celebration of the town’s patron saint, San Ranieri, and are part of the so-called “Pisan June”. If you are in Pisa at this time don’t miss especially the Luminara, the regatta of San Ranieri and playing bridge.
