About Pisa

Pisa houses the world famous "Leaning tower". Pisa holds a lot of historical references to it. This home of Galileo Galilei is today a university city offering studies to many students from across the globe. During the medieval times, Pisa was the most important port city. The narrow alleys of this medieval city are bordered by many noble buildings. Some of the places to be visited in Pisa: Campo dei Miracoli - This famous square is formed by a complex of four buildings was constructed by some of the eminent architects of that era. This square is designed in Pisan Romanesque style. The best attraction is the alternating rows of white and greenish-gray stone. The Leaning Tower - This is an incredible tower which needs no introduction. Designed as a bell-tower for the cathedral, work began in 1174 based on a project by Bonanno Pisano. The round tower is composed of a base with blind arches supporting six loggia tiers that culminate in an elegant bell chamber. Each tour to this tower can take a maximum of 40 people. They are accompanied by authorized staff. Tickets to the tower can be purchased from the ticket office near the Leaning Tower. Santa Maria della Spina - This is a small church built across the banks of the Arno. Its USP is a thorn from the crown of Jesus Christ which has been preserved here for centuries. People from all across the world come here to have a look upon the thorn which was once piercing through the holy head of the Christ. The Palazzo Reale National Museum - This museum is worth a visit. It houses the treasures ranging from the works of variety. It holds items from official portraits of the courts to historic armors, right up to the Antonio Ceci collection with Italian and Flemish paintings.
