Pisa Holidays Overview
Although Pisa is best known for its famous ‘leaning tower, or Campanile, there is a lot more to Pisa than this single landmark. It is rich in heritage, culture, art and architecture, and there are plenty of squares, monuments, museums, and galleries to explore.
Originally a great Roman naval base to rival Venice and Genoa, Pisa was transformed into a centre of learning, art, science, and literature after it fell to Florence in the fifteenth century. It has a well known university, and Galileo Galilei, the most famous citizen of Pisa once taught there.
