Home to one of Italy's most renowned universities, Pisa is a bustling town that has much to offer aside from its world-famous tower. Its beautiful architecture, lively bar scene and fantastic food make Pisa a charming stop for tourists and business travellers alike.
A stay in Pisa wouldn't be complete without viewing the famous Leaning Tower. The remarkable architectural structure is one of four buildings that make up the impressive Piazza dei Miracoli (Field on Miracles).
Leave your hotel to visit Pisa's historical centre. Stroll along the banks of the Arno river, which is lined with some lovely examples of coloured Tuscan-style architecture. Stop to admire the church of Santa Maria del Sefina, a little Gothic jewel on the bank of the river. Before heading back to your hotel in Pisa, take time out to sip an aperitivo at one of the numerous bars and restaurants along the Arno.
With the Ligurian Sea on one side and rolling farmlands and hills on the other, cuisine in Pisa is incredibly diverse and never far from most hotels. In Pisa, try traditional dishes such as bavettine sul pesce (long thin strands of pasta with seafood) or risotto con le arselle (risotto with clams).
