Welcome to Italy in Photos, where we invite you to embark on a journey through Pisa: – Pisa is a city in Tuscany, Italy, that is famous for its Leaning Tower, one of the most recognizable landmarks in the world. Pisa was founded by the Etruscans, an ancient civilization that ruled over central Italy before the Romans. The name Pisa comes from the Etruscan word for “mouth”, as the city is located at the mouth of the Arno River. Pisa became a powerful maritime republic in the Middle Ages, competing with Genoa, Venice, and Amalfi for trade and influence in the Mediterranean. Pisa was also a centre of learning and culture, home to the University of Pisa, the Scuola Normale Superiore, and the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies. The most famous attraction in Pisa is the Square of Miracles (Piazza dei Miracoli), a UNESCO World Heritage Site that contains the Leaning Tower, the Cathedral, the Baptistery, and the Cemetery. The Leaning Tower is a bell tower that began to tilt during its construction in the 12th century due to the unstable soil. The tower is 55.86 meters (183.27 feet) high and leans at an angle of 3.97 degrees. Visitors can climb the 294 steps to the top and enjoy the panoramic view of the city. The Cathedral is a masterpiece of Romanesque architecture, with a marble facade, a bronze door, and a coffered ceiling. The Baptistery is the largest in Italy, with a circular shape and a dome that creates an amazing acoustic effect. The Cemetery is a monumental cloister that houses many frescoes, sculptures, and tombs of notable Pisans. Pisa is not only about the Square of Miracles, though. The city has many other attractions to discover, such as the Clock Palace, the Piazza dei Cavalieri, the Lungarni, and the Certosa di Calci. The Clock Palace is a medieval tower that houses a 17th-century clock and a chapel. The Piazza dei Cavalieri is a historic square that was once the political center of Pisa and the headquarters of the Knights of St. Stephen, a military order founded by the Medici. The Lungarni are the picturesque streets along the Arno River, where you can find many shops, restaurants, and palaces. The Certosa di Calci is a former Carthusian monastery that dates to the 14th century and hosts a natural history museum. It is also a city of festivals and traditions. Every June, Pisa celebrates its patron saint, San Ranieri, with a series of events that include the Luminara, the Regatta, and the Battle of the Bridge. The Luminara is a spectacular display of lights that illuminates the Lungarni and the monuments on the night of June 16. The Regatta is a boat race between the four districts of the city that takes place on the Arno on June 17. The Battle of the Bridge is a historical reenactment of a medieval fight between two teams that push a cart over a bridge on the last Sunday of June. Pisa is a city that will surprise you with its beauty, history, and culture. Whether you are interested in art, architecture, science, or nature, you will find something to enjoy in this city. Pisa is a perfect destination for a day trip or a longer stay, as it is well connected to other cities in Tuscany and Italy by train, bus, and plane. Pisa is waiting for you to discover its wonders and secrets.
