Walked through it to get to the train station from the Pisa Duomo Complex. This is a very picturesque street with lots of bars, cafes, coffee shops, and restaurants in the area. We had a late lunch in a restaurant in this area and the food was not only delicious, but very easy on the wallet. It is a lively area with all the tourists visiting the Duomo pouring in after their visit, so depending on what time you pass through, it might be very busy. We were there around 3:00 PM and had no problem getting a table.

Crossing Ponte di Mezzo, the city of Pisa presents Borgo Stretto and its slow walk between the really narrow space, the period arcades and the 14th and 15th century buildings overlooked by many small shops and a thousand refreshment points. Borgo Stretto is one of the almost obligatory stops in order to get to Piazza dei Miracoli. Very well maintained and cared for. A must visit!

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 local students, backpackers etc giving this place a very college town feel.

Lovely street between the station / river and tourist attractions. Restaurants, shops, churches and statues on the street and lots of shady places for when the sun is too hot. Worth a look.

Place in the center of city. Very good for walking. A lot of shops, cafes. All prices very high. Watch out when you are drive a car. Streets in Pisa ( not only) have a very special " "Zona traffica limitato"- this mean this street is only for inhabitants.This sign very often are a little hidden, all information are in Italian language . The zona has a lot of cameras and after you vacation you will receive ticket from Italy. Very high ticket. Can be 180 Euro. When you will not pay directly at the term - the price is doubles :). The municipal police look for driver which rental car and always send ticket to your country. Of course - you don't have any information during your visit in Italy, only later. This ticket is not for parking only for driving ;) This mean when you will visit center of Italian cities , like very nice Borgo Stretto in Pisa- watch out of Zona Traffica Limitato.

Nice shopping street, good for a wander. There are some lovely bakeries and eateries located down this street and some designer fashion shops for those who are so inclined.

Some lovely buildings to be seen, as well as a nice church which can be seen into during services through glass doors.

All in I found it to be nicer than the shopping located on the other side of the river, more 'old town' style which leads almost directly up to the Leaning Tower etc.

Ancient colonnaded shopping street. Many upmarket shops but also interesting side streets with more "normal" (i.e. non-tourist) shops. There was a market down one of these streets on Thursday (and may be other days).

We walked the length of this street on the way to the leaning tower from the railway station, it's a nice street with everything from gelato to clothes shops bars and restaraunts,with a mixture of locals and tourists as this is pedestrian it can take you as long as you want without having to watch out for traffic,why not stop of at one of bars for a drink and people watch that's what we did, well that's my excuse...

Following our visit to the duomo and leaning tower, we followed the Rick Steves guide which recommended walking around old town, along the river, and back to the duomo grounds via this lovely street. On a hot day this street provides quite a bit of lovely shade, sidewalk cafes, and interesting shops. When you imagine how old the street is it's especially interesting.
If you venture down the street make some time to walk along the river. The architecture is lovely and the walk serene.
