The most beautiful Piazza anywhere, go and enjoy the beauty, and the market stalls. But don't get caught out with pushy street sellers with fake goods !!!

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

It was a beautiful sight, especially considering that the small town of Pisa doesn't have any buildings in other areas around that we noticed as spectacular.

“Field of Miracles Indeed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

The Campo dei Miracoli is a stunning sight achieved only after trudging past stall after stall of cheesy souvenirs that include resin versions of the classic leaning tower and underpants printed with Michelangelo's David, well, with some of his parts. You turn the corner, and step through the gate and gaze in awe at the sight of the beautifully carved creamy white marble of the Duomo, the Baptistry, and the Leaning Tower.

The three are set on impossibly green lawns roped off by chains attached to marble posts. Beyond is the Camposanto, an enclosed cemetery filled with splendid tombs of knights in armor, many from the time of the Crusades. Most of the buildings here are Romanesque in style and date from the 11th and 12th centuries. Take plenty of time to check out all of the buildings here.

There is also a museum and dozens of crowded restaurants off to the right. If you want to eat, I suggest a modest pizza place called Pizzaria Kiste on the Via Cardinale Maffi, 36. You can find it easily by walking straight back from the Duomo, past the leaning tower, to the gate. It's about a half block away. Check out my review of the Pizzaria Kiste and see the photo of the best pizza I've ever had, Il Vesuvio, a Pizza Ripieni with sauce coming through the steam vent. This was an experience in itself.

“spectacular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

when we walked into the piazza dei miracoli we could not belie the sight in front of us, it is truly amazing, we visited a small cafe just outside the piazza and the food was good, beware of the street sellers they are a pest some are very annoying and don't like no for an answer, be rude ignore them

“Perfect Journey, Perfect Destination!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

We visited Pisa as a day trip from Florence. We enjoyed the journey going to Pisa - it was fabulous. The view of Tuscany is so beautiful - the mountains, the villages, the fields - worth a king's ransom! The best 30-minute (almost) bus ride for the family.

And when we reached the Piazza de Mircacoli, our eyes had a great feast. We were so overwhelmed - we wanted to be at all places at once!

How could this Piazza be in the middle of nowhere - a very beautiful and scenic irony! Definitely a world landmark not to be missed by travelers.

One tip: Make sure not to drink water too much, you need to pay 1 euro to use the public toilet.
