Discovering Pisa means getting lost in squares populated by students who crowd the night clubs keeping the medieval city alive. It's a pleasure to spend an evening at the tables of the bars in Piazza delle Vettovaglie or Piazza della Pera. Moving between alleys and riversides you will discover architectural jewels such as Santa Maria della Spina, the headquarters of the Scuola Normale in Piazza dei Cavalieri and the exhibitions of Palazzo Blu.
Sooner or later you inevitably end up attracted again by the magnetic charm of Piazza dei Miracoli, with its unique characteristics and many mysteries and splendours. Start from the Baptistery (with its startling acoustics) and head to the Camposanto Monumentale that overlooks the square, 130 meters long with 43 blind arches. The Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, founded in 1063, is the absolute masterpiece of Romanesque-Pisan architecture, while behind it the famous Tower will not cease to amaze you.
Finally, among the 10 things not to miss in the city, you will certainly have to include the high altitude walkway of the Walls. 11 meters high, it offers visitors the opportunity to observe the city from an unprecedented perspective. And if you travel with children, don't miss the opportunity to visit the Historical Ships Museum in Pisa. Set up inside the Arsenali Medicei, it displays seven boats from the Roman era and offers guided tours and workshops for families.
