Pisa, more than the famous leaning tower

Pisa is one of the best places to visit in Tuscany and one of the best places in the world because of its enormous artistic wealth, with one of the most memorable squares you will ever see: the Piazza del Duomo (a.k.a. Square of Miracles) with the Duomo, the Monumental Cemetery, the Baptistry and the famous leaning Tower… all together!. It’s an enormous square with plenty of tourists… but it’s worth a visit.
But Pisa offers more than just a 2 hour visit to the square. I had time, so I stayed overnight and I discovered a more peaceful town in a romantic voyage through the centuries along the Lungarnos, the noble streets beside the river Arno.

Best places to visit in Tuscany

One of the best places to visit in Europe is Tuscany, thanks to, probably, the greatest repository of art, its renowned history, its wonderful landscapes (with sweet hills, tall cypress trees and superb bays overlooking the sea) and its famous food and wine.

Among all the beautiful towns, I’d highlight Florence (the capital of art), Lucca (a town full of secrets), San Gimignano (the medieval manhattan in the Tuscany), Pisa (more than the famous leaning tower) and Siena (the soul of Tuscany)
