When we think about Pisa we wouldn't normally think about its nightlife, but this city hides a few surprises.   In fact, with a lively student population and frequent travellers, Pisa hides a pretty entertaining nightlife with a variety of  bars, pubs and clubs  enough to keep travelers and students happy on a night out. Thursdays are the big night in the city, as (along with stretches during the summer) the students often go home on weekends. Besides the ordinary nightlife, June is a special month in Pisa, better know as Giugno Pisano including a lot of traditional events such as: Luminara of Saint Ranieri celebration: On June 16th along the Arno river of Pisa the tradition of  Luminara of Saint Ranieri is renewed. Pisans celebrate their patron, Saint Ranieri, on June 17th, but the Luminara begins the day before. During this night the city is filled with wax candles, set in glasses and fixed in wooden white frames, then placed on the outline of the buildings, bridges, churches and towers along the river. The leaning Tower is also illuminated  by oil lamps, set in the city walls of Piazza dei Miracoli. During the night in the center several parties, music and fun takes place. The night ends with fireworks.
