  • First trip to Pisa. How lovely. Some amazing photo attempts of holding up the tower! Nice meander and very good pizza....tuna, pineapple, sweet corn and red onion! Nice glass of rose. Very friendly staff who spoke excellent English.
  • If you are in Florence or somewhere in the area it is worth taking an hour local train ride to visit this place. The plaza contains the Cathedral Archdiocese of Pisa which of course the world renown leaning tower of Pisa is a part of. The place is full of tourists but you can still enjoy yourself by visiting the Duomo and/or the tower. Be sure to check the schedule and get on the list as the line to climb the tower may be very long.
