“Construction Site”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Sadly there is major construction going on just now which blights the piazza. Nevertheless the buildings in the square are fantastic

“Real historic centre of Pisa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

Pisa was once part of the four historic marine republics (together with Amalfi, Genova and Venezia). With the closing of the Arno this has changes. Still the Piazza dei Cavalieri reminds us of the splendour of Pisa's importance and the crusades in which Pisa participated with the Maltese Templars. You will also see the Scuola Normale, which few in Italy will doubt is Italy's academic summit, however quite unknown outside Italy.
