We were group of friends, who went 10 days road trip through all Italy. This was one of our destination to see.... We visit during by daytime - i found nothing special - London embankment is much better.... probably during by night is different views

The Luminara is great fun, but the streets are very, very crowded. The fire works were fun, but the narration that accompanied them was, honestly, boring and unnecessary.

Pisa is a beautiful little town with the river running through it. Seeing it lit up with candles so meticulously was a great experience. The festivity, colors and lights highlighting the classic architecture, spectacular fireworks coordinated with music and the reflection on water is priceless.

Every year on June, the 16th, Pisa is enlightened by thousands of candles for the patron saint's festival, S. Ranieri. All the lamps are switched off and a suffused light is provided just by candles placed at every window, every door, every bridge on the...More

The entire city comes alive with music and lights. All the homes/apartments alongside the river are decorated with lamps. There's fireworks at 11pm. There's lots of epic music playing through huge speakers and the entire town gathers on the parapet walls of the river bank,...More
