Visit Tuscany's focal point of medieval architecture and fine art at Piazza dei Miracoli. Four historical buildings anchor this designated sacred area: the Pisa Cathedral, the Pisa Baptistery, the monumental cemetery, and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Wander the manicured green lawns of the plaza, taking in the view of the towering, white stone buildings and their ornate facades. Admire the beautiful marble arches and coffered ceiling of the cathedral with five naves. For more information on the site's history and cultural legacy, visit the plaza's Sinopias Museum or the Cathedral Museum.

  • The Piazza here is grassy and beautiful. They maintain it very well, and want you to stay off the grass, especially near the popular spots that everyone wants to take pictures, but further back by the...  more »
  • Unlike the Leaning Tower, there are not many people, so you can feel the silence of religious institutions. Do you have a habit of murals? Some of them represent the view of hell in the Middle Ages. Is the view of hell the same east and west of the ocean?

  • First trip to Pisa. How lovely. Some amazing photo attempts of holding up the tower! Nice meander and very good pizza....tuna, pineapple, sweet corn and red onion! Nice glass of rose. Very friendly staff who spoke excellent English.
  • If you are in Florence or somewhere in the area it is worth taking an hour local train ride to visit this place. The plaza contains the Cathedral Archdiocese of Pisa which of course the world renown leaning tower of Pisa is a part of. The place is full of tourists but you can still enjoy yourself by visiting the Duomo and/or the tower. Be sure to check the schedule and get on the list as the line to climb the tower may be very long.
