This is a great street to wander down and has many interesting options to look at as you walk through. Plenty of shops, cafe's and gelateria's to keep you happy. It has a great amount of charm this street and is well worth wandering through - and chances are you will as you head from Pisa Centrale to the Tower... More

Came by during the day which was nice for some window shopping or food- there's a lot of places to eat here- but the real treat was coming back in the evening. At the bottom of the street backing onto the river there was an open air concert going on in one of the squares- people of all ages there... More

This was a really neat way to walk through Pisa. If you have a few extra minutes and are not trying to "fit Pisa into other plans" then walking down this street and taking in the atmosphere is well worth the effort. I completely enjoyed it.

After visiting the Leaning Tower and taking the obligatory photos trying to push it back up - this street is a wonderful place to spend some time. Cafes and Pizzerias offer a quick, cheap lunch and there is a nice range of shops to browse.

If you want to walk to the tower in the cool shadows of attractive buildings, go down this street. Despite some earlier reviews there are more eating possibilities than gelateria. The shops are good too. It's a perfect way to go to the leaning tower.

Great place to walk and shop. Most of the restaurants are Gelataria's and don't have a great menu, but the area is great.

We had 6 hours in Pisa and needed something to see after completing our tour of Miracle Square. At Borgo Stretto you can kill some time trying out gelatos, having a lunch and just shopping some designer and local brands. It had a most wonderful book store, stretching all the way out to their backyard. The street was full of... More

Happy to buy a coffee each but wouldn't eat there as lots more expensive than other places around Piazza Cavalieri. Excellent kitchenware shop, kitchenalia eg Alessi at good prices.

We passed through here after dark on our way back from a meal, and don't recommend it. The street is poorly lit and feels quite threatening with people hanging around in the shadows. We strayed into a nearby square thinking it sounded lively, but there were hundreds of dropouts hanging around, so we made a hasty exit. I'm sure the... More
