Visiting Pisa and Piazza dei Miracoli was a dream come true for me. We arrived mid-morning before the crowds were too big. It was an absolute joy to stand next to such beautiful buildings...something I never thought I would do. We visited in January - less busy and ample parking in designated car parks just a short walk from the... More

Although Pisa has always only really been an entrance and exit point for me as I have used the airport here on a number of occasions, the Piazza dei Miracoli is so beautiful and majestic that I sometimes wonder if it would be worth staying overnight in Pisa just so I could be there first in the morning before the...

I suggest you try to walk in Piazza dei Miracoli early in the morning, when (almost) nobody is there, and let you go and breath the thin air. Then, walk into Camposanto Monumentale as soon as it opens, before the crowd walks in...and try to understand what was in the mind of the people who brought here ancient Roman tombs... More

The moment we got to Pisa we thought it had a lovely feel. Only there for one day. So we went straight to this square and then of course visited the monuments and museums around it.

If you are a tourist who loves the "touristy" attractions while traveling, then you have found the right spot. You will be in crowded lines (if you want to go into the tower) and there will be TONS of people, all of whom are doing the same "holding the tower pose" as everyone else. THAT SAID, if you are a...

We did not get to enter any of the buildings as they were closed but the grounds and the tower are worthy of a visit!

It had been thirty years since I was here. The whole complex had been under renovation, enclosed in scaffolding. Everything is open, gleaming, and stunning!

A lot of visitors to Pisa try to visit the Leaning tower and Duomo on their way to Pisa airport and home so the good news is that they do have a left luggage area at the Pisa Centrale station. It is possible to walk to the Piazza dei Miracoli but not advisable if you are in a hurry. First... More

The 'place of miracles' is a huge open green space in Pisa, where you will find the Cathedral, Baptistery and of course the Leaning Tower. There are some other significant buildings here and a big museum too. You could spend a whole day here if you wanted to do everything and go round each building in depth, including climbing the...

It is a lovely green space. Probably a surprise to first time visitors. Not crowded in February. I liked the calm place.
