Just a short walk from the mob scenes around the leaning tower, you will find a quiet and beautiful plaza, lined with lovely buildings. The walk itself is worth it, as it takes you through a very nice shopping area and a pleasant small square. The plaza itself has several remarkable buildings, covered in carvings and decorations.

The Piazza dei Cavalieri is a bit of a walk away from the tower. It is definitely worth while the walk as it was peaceful and quiet compared to the crowds at the tower.

During our walking tour of Pisa our guide took us to this interesting Piazza. It is a ways away from the leaning tower but worth the walk.

Don't let this gem slip away. Just a short distance away from the "Tower" is this wonderful square. The piazza is the historical headquarters for the Knights of St Stephen. Given the chance make sure you see the beautiful naval banners captured from the Turkish navy in the late 1500's

Take a moment to sit on a bench at the edge of the square, admire the beautiful buildings, and watch the street life going by. It is relatively quiet here, and a good spot to just enjoy the atmosphere - perhaps with a gelato in your hand!

Very nice city architecture. The square will provide a great background in every direction. You can hardly miss it while walking and exploring Old part of Pisa between Piazza dei Miracoli and river Arno.
