“And yet it moves”! Pisa, the home of Galileo Galilei, the great physicist and astronomer! A world-widely famed destination, Pisa was destined to become popular due to an architectural work that went wrong. You can search for cheap air tickets to Pisa, if you wish to see with your own eyes the much-photographed Leaning Tower of Pisa and much and more beauties of the city’s marvellous skyline. This small city of Tuscany will provide you with anything you need for a pleasant stay, cheap accommodation and quality, for a trip to remember!
Pisa is the capital of Tuscany province, in Central Italy. Located across the banks of River Arno and with a population of 85,000, Pisa attracts millions of visitors and tourists from all over the world who cannot wait to witness the rare architectural wealth that make Pisa so popular.
But the trip to Pisa is not only about the Duomo and the Leaning Tower; Pisa also boasts a beautiful city centre, filled with Romanesque buildings, Renaissance squares and Gothic churches, not to mention the numerous choices in gastronomy, museums, nightlife and entertainment.
Pisa’s international airport (Aeroporto Internazionale di Pisa) is located just 1 kilometre away from the city centre and is accessible by airport buses.
Getting around Pisa
You can get around Pisa by bus and railway. Minimum taxi fare in Pisa costs 4.00€.
Your day in Pisa begins at the medieval Duomo Square, or Square of the Miracles, dominated by the Romanesque Cathedral (Duomo), with its sharp arches and his elaborate interior decorated with beautiful murals.
It’s said that Galileo himself got inspired to compose his theory of the Pendulum, by the pendulum hanging at the main nave of the Cathedral!
The Tower of Pisa is actually the bell tower of the Cathedral but a flaw in its construction resulted in its leaning. Though restored and reinforced many times in the past, the reality is that the leaning of the tower increases 1 mm annually.
The Leaning Tower of Pisa is currently open to the public and research has shown that the tower’s going to be safe for at least three more centuries.
The Cemetery (Camposanto – Holy Field), allegedly built around the sacred soil from Golgotha and the Santa Maria della Spina Church are the next two buildings that will catch your eye.
The Church of Santa Maria della Spina is an elegant Gothic church of impressive architecture, said to own a thorn from the crown of Jesus Christ!
Apart from the Tower and the churches, there is another religious building in Pisa that will leave you astonished; the Baptistery of St. John was built in 1152 and its construction was completed in 1363, designed by Diotisalvi.
The monumental size of the Baptistery is contradicted by the elegant style and the splendid marble details, creating an unreal masterpiece of architecture. The interior is even more impressive, lacking any excessive decorations, centred on the bronze statue of St. John the Baptist, a work by Nicola Pisano.
Finally, you should definitely pay a visit to the National Museum of St. Matthias (National Museum of San Matteo), with collections of medieval sculptures and paintings, and the Botanical Garden of Pisa (Orto Botanico di Pisa), the oldest university botanical garden in Europe!
Pisa’s official language is Italian.
