This is essentially what Pisa is famous for - the buildings on this square, the piazza dei Miracoli. There is a ticket office where you can choose which buildings you want to visit and which time you want to climb the leaning tower.
We visited the Piazza Dei Miracolo as part of a Viking Ocean cruise in December 2018. Within these walls you have the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Baptistry and the Pisa Cathedral. The Baptistry is beautiful! An employee there with a deep voice sang a...More
It is a very beautiful place and you can take many nice interesting photos. Some people told me prior to my trip that Pisa was not worth it and boring but I disagree, you can easily spend one hour or two here in the Piazza...More
Pisa is known for being the home of the Leaning Tower, but less well known is the fact that the tower is just one of the buildings in the complex known as the Piazza dei Miracoli. We knew to expect the Duomo, Tower, and baptistery...More
This place is very interesting since there is a type of cemetery. There aren't crosses, only plaques on the ground with names, dates, sculptures and various information. It is a great place to relax and meditate since it is very quiet place.
The Piazza dei Miracoli is also known as Piazza del Duomo (and it is a walled 8.87 hectare area where you can find the Pisa Cathedral, Baptistry, the Bell Tower (Leaning Tower) and old cemetery.
It's super packed during days but if you come towards...More
This piazza includes the tower, Duomo and Baptistery along with the bishops residence. The entire area is enclosed by walls and you have to go through the gate to get in. Lots of lawn space that is fenced for better photos.
Not sure about tickets but I can talk about driving in Pisa. And my advice is: don't. Leave your car at your hotel and take a taxi. It isn't a big place but it has narrow mediaeval streets, little in the way of parking... More
Not sure about tickets but I can talk about driving in Pisa. And my advice is: don't. Leave your car at your hotel and take a taxi. It isn't a big place but it has narrow mediaeval streets, little in the way of parking spaces, and a one way system designed to confuse foreigners.
It's also hot and humid so your mum might find it a challenge to walk far. Younger members of the party will probably find it easy to walk. It's a small and flat city.
Piazza dei Miracoli -- Leaning Tower. And Lucca (3 Replies)
Hi all! Planning a day trip (via trains) from Florence to Lucca to Pisa. Do we need to buy tickets in advance to enter the Piazza? Or do we need them at all if we don't want to go into the Leaning Tower. Is it worth it to climb the tower? Anything we should really hit in Pisa besides the Leaning Tower and Piazza? We do plan to walk and discover of course! And we plan on heading to Le Mura di Lucca in Lucca. We have heard there are bike rentals and it's a beautiful ride! Also, would love...More

Just back from 5 day trip to Pisa, Florence and Lucca. No need to buy train tickets in advance, plenty of availability and seats cant be pre booked anyway. One day is really enough to see Pisa, most of the attractions are at the Tower (20 min walk from train station). There is no charge to view buildings from outside but there is a charge for each one. We did not book in advance,.got tickets from on site office, the wait time was an hour which allowed us time to visit the Cathedral and the...More
Pisa Airport - Pisa Centrale - Lucca (1 Replies)
Hi we fly into Pisa Airport arriving at 11.30am. Plan is to get to our accommodation (yet to be booked) freshen up and head to the Piazza Dei Miracoli. (Not planning on climbing the tower). From Pisa we shall head to Lucca by bus. Could anyone advise where we can get the bus from? The bus number and bus timetable would be really helpful to plan accordingly. Are there regular buses/trains in operation from Lucca back to Pisa and is there any need to buy return tickets in advance? I understand...More

Things to Do in Lucca on a Monday (17 Replies)
Hey all, My wife and I will be visiting Italy in June, with a stay in Florence planned for Sunday afternoon through Wednesday morning.

Now, flee ...) then head to Lucca for the afternoon by bus or train before wandering our way back to Florence. However, as it will be Monday many of the shops and museums in Lucca...More

Enjoy a good lunch, rent a bike and cycle the walls, visit the churches, climb the tower, walk the city particularly through the back streets and soak up the atmosphere. tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g187898-i832-k4469… tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g187898-i832-k51…
