Not only the Piazza dei Miracoli: from the Lungarni to the Piazza dei Cavalieri, from the museums to the churches, Pisa in June is a wonder to discover.
One of the Maritime Republics, together with Genoa, Amalfi and Venice, Pisa dominated the Mediterranean for a long time. Even nowadays, the town bears the signs of its glorious medieval past, preserving some of the most fascinating Romanesque churches in Tuscany, and some hidden treasures as well.
The artistic heart of the city beats in the Piazza dei Miracoli, where the Cathedral, the Camposanto (monumental cemetery), the Baptistery and the renowned Tower are all located. The Lungarni of Pisa, already loved by the poet Giacomo Leopardi, are a sight to behold, and the Piazza dei Cavalieri is a place really full of history.
The town is truly on a human scale: all the points of interest may be reached on foot. After a good espresso in the city centre, with a few steps you can visit some of the richest museums in Italy: the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo or the Museo di San Matteo, coffer of the masterpieces of the art of the Middle Ages.
