Pisa is one of the most famous cities in Italy and truly a must-see for anyone visiting Italy. Despite the fact that it owes its popularity to an architectural error, it is a vibrant city that has much to offer its guests and is ready to reveal its secrets to those who visit.
Architect Diotisalvi, (whose last name is literally translated to âMaygodsaveyouâ), the designer of the Tower of Pisa, was indeed "saved" by divine benevolence, because still after 800 years his tower still dominates the Square of Miracles despite its fearful inclination.
Pisa is represented by its bell tower, but as soon as you enter the square you will immediately be enthralled by its beauty and that the Baptistery, Cathedral, and Tower are symbiotic elements, which complement each other in an aesthetic framework of rare beauty.
This city although modest in size was one of four maritime powers and has experienced periods of prosperity, but also dark moments that are perceived as soon as you walk onto Piazza dei Cavalieri, where there is still the then called Tower of Muda, also known as the Tower of Fame. In this unsettling place, Count Ugolino della Gherardesca mentioned in Canto XXXIII of Dante's Inferno was left to die starving along with his children and grandchildren. Dante does not clarify, however, whether the prisoner succumbed to cannibalism, by eating his offspring before dying.
Pisa has 3 leaning towers and not just one! In the district of Borgo Stretto the bell tower of theSt. Nicholas Church is leaning, but above all that of the Church of San Michele degli Scalzi has a slope of about 5 degrees.
Experience unforgettable sunsets on the Lungarno Medici as the sun gently caresses the beautiful patrician houses. In June, Pisa is the most romantic
when hundreds of lights illuminate the night in the Luminaria of San Ranieri, playing with the shadows and reflections of the river.
