Is a city in the Tuscany region of Central Italy straddling the Arno river just before it empties into the Ligurian Sea. It is the capital city of the Province of Pisa. Although Pisa is known worldwide for its leaning tower (the bell tower of the city’s  cathedral), the city of over 91,104 residents (around 200,000 with the metropolitan area) contains more than 20 other historic churches, several medieval palaces and various bridges across the Arno. Much of the city’s architecture was financed from its history as one of the Italian maritime republics. Pisa has an international airport known as Pisa International Airport located in San Giusto neighborhood in Pisa. The airport has a people mover system, called Pisamover, opened in March 2017, that connects Airport and Pisa central railway station, that is 2 km away. It’s based on a driverless  “horizontal funicular” that travels the distance in 5 minutes, with a 5-minute frequency, having an intermediate stop at parking station San Giusto & Aurelia.  Wikipedia
