We walked through this Piazza several times on our recent visit to Pisa because it is such a peaceful and beautiful place to stroll. The architecture of the various buildings lining the Piazza is wonderful and one can soak up the atmosphere of one of Pisa's finest squares outside of the Duomo. It is especially lovely in the early morning... More

You'll most likely walk through this plaza on the way to seeing the leaning tower and the Duomo. It is a nice place though a bit austere without trees, greenery or any protection from the sun or the elements. Buildings are fairly standard Italian townhouses other than the splendid Palazzo della Carovana with its frescoed facade and Palazzo dell'Orologio which... More

The buildings in this square are well worth a look. The decoration of the Palazzo Dei Cavalieri is astonishing. We couldn't get into the Santo Stefano church but loved the Rough Guide description of Stefano as a licensed pirate

We walked through here at night on our way back to our hotel from the leaning tower and found it to be a lovely area.

Piazza dei cavalieri (Square of Knights ) is an important square because it was the political centre of the past! It is a beautiful place that around the square are narrows with lots of little restaurants and cafés! Walk through this Piazza, worth it!

The first glimpse I had of what the old city really means. The square has an odd shape, there are cars going in impredictible directions and there are no special roadways, but the pedestrians are quite safe. The buildings around the square are interesting, particularly Santo Stefano church, the one with the clock and Scuola Normale, that has plenty of... More

Even without a walking tour, you can understand the historical importance of this square. It's a short walk from Piazza dei Miracoli and the Leaning Tower.
