Lovely square not far from leaning tower but in a different world. Quiet and full of intrique. Take time to admire all the buildings on the square they all have something different to give.

A very spacious and elegant square in Pisa that leads to Piazza dei Miracoli. It is also in the midst of Pisa a couple of minutes from River Arno.

It's amazing how quiet the beautiful piazza was taking it's just few minutes away from Duomo and the tower. The feeling was very dozy and out of the time. You could almost feel the knights coming to train there. If only there would be something more than just looking the old buildings.

On this Piazza you have many famous and beautiful old buildings. There are a few museums close-by, one supposedly in one of the Piazza buildings, but they are not all that easy to find.

One of the attractions in Pisa. Old buildings of school located on the square. Rather quiet place with some nice restaurants around.

Besides buildings a place to hand out and drink beer in the evening and chat as many students do. Buildings themselves are not spectacular

It is not a square! It is a theatre! Designed by a Renaissance architecth, you should pass by and admire.

Like others, we stumbled upon this Piazza on our way to the leaning tower and came back every night because of it's beauty. The Scuola Superiore is one of the most attractive buildings in Pisa, and Piazza dei Cavalieri is a peaceful respite from the legions of posers and selfie stickers outside the tower, which is only minutes away.
