The best moment to visit the square is in a sunny day, when the white marble that covers the three wonders included in the square shines in the sun and you can get an amazing picture of three shining pieces of architecture standing on a beautiful green grass. The finest piece of art of this complex is the pulpit made... More

Okay so, I visited there in Late August 2014 for a short stay (2-3 hours) Although, the Piazza dei Miracoli is a nice place but the rest of the city isn't much special. The place is densely populated and noisy. However, It does deserve a one time visit. Tips: Try avoiding eating at nearby restaurants and prefer the ones away... More

Not at all what we expected. A beautifully sunny day with clear blue skies, turn the corner and wow! The tower is simply magnificent and a wonder to see in the flesh, as is the Baptistry and Cathedral. Not a place to be rushed. An architectural sensory overload. Can imagine gets very busy in the summer! But simply stunning and... More

Epitome of the beauty of Italian architecture of the golden age, this square, with its wonderful buildings amid green lawns is renown all over the World. And it is really worth it. Best is late at night, when there is little tourists around and you can walk and breathe the peace of this magic place.

A great place to spend 2-3 hours. I would recommend joining a tour if you can to get the most out of the site. Most come to take a picture "pushing" the leaning tower over without learning much of the very old history of the site. We hired a guide and were amazed at the history we learned; she also... More

This is a great area to explore. You may need more than half a day to take your time looking round as there is so much to see. Try to get there before the big tour groups arrive as your chance of of getting stabbed by a selfie stick increases with time up to about 15:00! Also if you stay... More

There are a lot of tourists here but you are all there to enjoy the beautiful sights, and some of the poses by the tourists are entertaining to see, but having said that there is generally a very nice atmosphere and all good fun.

Really, if you're going to Pisa you're going to Piazza dei Miracoli. While the crowds are enormous, especially during the middle of the day, you'll see some of Italy's most famous attractions. Standing in the plaza gives you a real sense of how important this was as the centre of Pisa all those years ago.

The buildings surrounding it are all beautiful, and the sense of space is amazing - provided you go at a quiet time and it's not crowded with tourists and hustlers trying to sell you tat! Early morning is probably best, I was practically alone.
