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.

The well-trodden path between the leaning tower and this beautiful square is currently defaced by ongoing roadworks, but it's still worth taking that walk and admiring the architecture on the way. The square itself is a beautiful space but be careful when walking with your nose in the air as cars do cross it, and not especially slowly.

Loved hearing the history of this area. Certainly worth a visit if you're in the area. Doesn't take too long.

If you're at the leaning tower of Pisa, its worth walking to this square. The buildings are very interesting and the walk is nice - also gets you away from the hundreds of people all trying to take photos of them holding the tower up.

This is another proof Pisa is not only famous for its Leaning Tower. This square is so beautiful; it was definitely another attraction i absolutely wanted to see in Pisa. Standing near Cosimo's Statue and going round in 360 degrees to view all the beautiful buildings; there is such rich history through it all, some of which stand out more... More

We discovered this while exploring Pisa on foot on our first day there. We didn't have our cameras which I was annoyed about but figured we would find it the next day. We did, however by the time we had gotten there it was dark so were unable to get the shots we wanted! Typical! The buildings were my favourite... More

We were staying near the Arno River and after walking to visit the Piazza dei Miracoli (Leaning Tower, Duomo), we took a different route back and stumbled upon this pleasant Square with very few people around. There are several restaurants and bars in the area so we grabbed some nearby food and just hung out. There are several historical buildings... More
