Best known for its Leaning Tower, Pisa is an Italian city in the Tuscany region. Pisa is a relatively small city, but it's packed with culture, history, authentic food, and friendly locals.

The most popular destination in Pisa is the Piazza Dei Miracoli. This vast square has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It holds four of Pisa's most famous masterpieces: The Leaning Tower, Baptistero di San Giovanni, Duomo di Pisa, and Camposanto Monumentale di Pisa, the "monumental cemetery." These landmarks are within walking distance of each other, and tours are held daily at each. Climb the Leaning Tower's 257 steps for an entirely different view of the city, and make sure to climb at sunset for added magic. Or, you can just take a cheesy picture where it looks like you're holding up the tower.

Elsewhere in the city, wander through the winding medieval streets of Pisa to find many boutique shops and local cafes. Borgo Stretto is an exceptionally diverse shopping street with many high-end brands, local designers, and authentic restaurants.

Traveling to Pisa is straightforward. Bus services from companies like Marino and FlixBus provide affordable ground transport from cities like Florence, Rome, and Milan, among other cities. Pisa Centrale is the primary train station in the city, and the city's Pisa Galileo Galilei Airport welcomes many national and international flights.
