Some of the finest gems of Western architecture are clustered on Pisa’s Piazza dei Miracoli, known locally as Piazza del Duomo.
Your first sight of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Duomo and the Baptistery is literally breathtaking, their white marble shining in the sunshine on a bed of emerald green lawn against a summer’s blue sky.
Apart from the glorious architecture – white, red and green marble, Romanesque curves, Tuscan arches and Gothic points – it’s the almost surreal spatial quality of the buildings that creates a sensation.
Come here during the day to see the buildings’ white marble shine in the sunlight, and return again at night when visitors are fewer and the buildings are beautifully floodlit.
Very informative ! A constant stream of
Information,music and sound effects!
Entertaining and lots of history. The crew
on board were very helpful.
Exhilarating - especially the leaning tower, I could have spent all day there hopping on/off.
great way to see the city in one day
The Piazza dei Miracoli is around 1.5 km (1 mile) north of the train station, over the River Arno.
Take a walk through the medieval town center to get here, or jump on a bus at the station.
