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.

I confess the real reason we came to Pisa was to see the tower. As we wondered about looking for a restaurant on our first night, we passed through this piazza. The detail on the Palazzo dei Cavalieri is stunning. Don't miss it! It's really not far from Campo dei Miracoli.

It's free, it is on the way between the Tower/Piazza dei Miracoli, and the buildings and statuary are weird and interesting. In particular the statue of the man with the intense gaze standing on a dead dolphin was worth seeing alone. Worth a look!

The second famous square in Pisa, after Piazza dei Miracoli, house of the famous "Normale School" of Pisa. I love it so much. And it deserves a visit.

This is a beautiful Piazza, there's not a huge amount here but I think for me that is part of the appeal. If you want a cafe etc then these can be found in the side streets near by The artwork on Palazzo della Carovana, which is part of the University,is really wonderful to see. There are some arched walkways... More

This is a beautiful medieval plaza, but not so many of the buildings are open to the Public. The most beautiful building is Palazzo della Carovana and is a part of Pisa University as well as some of the other buldings on this plaza. The palace was built in the 1560s and its facade is covered with grisaile decorations. The... More
