Pisa is best known for its leaning tower but there is much more to see in this Tuscan town. The area around the cathedral and tower, Piazza dei Miracoli, is beautiful and can easily occupy several hours. Pisa was one of the four great maritime republics in the middle ages and retains a good selection of monuments from that era. There’s also the Arno River, a university, and several interesting museums. It’s a good city for strolling and enjoying.
