Project Description

Pisa: Old Town

Tour Details



The old town is surrounded by a 7-km city wall (about 4,5 miles) built in the 12th Century. Inside, the city has 4 main neighborhoods divided by the river Arno and by the main shopping pedestrian road. From Piazza Dei Miracoli (where the Leaning Tower is) we start our stroll through via Santa Maria, overlooked by Medieval towers and Renaissance palaces. Just a few meters from the Tower, we can also see one of the most ancient botanical garden. We will visit Piazza Dei Cavalieri designed by the architect Giorgio Vasari in the 16th Century, which now houses the Scuola Normale Superiore (one of the most prestigious universities in the world). Busy alleys will lead us to the heart of the University area and the colorful markets. Passing by Galileo Galilei’s house (who was born in Pisa) we will arrive at the river Arno: beautiful buildings, the little church of Santa Maria Della Spina and museums… We will cross the river and visit the ancient Arab quarter, once called ‘Kinzica’. The end of the tour (or the beginning should you prefer to go backward) will be in front of the mural Tuttomondo by Keith Haring: the street artist came in Pisa in 1989.
