Beyond the Tower… following the line of History

mt_slimbox:Piazza dei Cavalieri, Palazzo dell'Orologio (photo by Georges Jansoone)Concentrated in just a few dozen kilometres are some of the most renowned artistic treasures of Tuscany: the "leaning" Tower of Pisa, Volterra "the city of the Etruscans", the Churches of San Miniato. A heritage that attracts millions of visitors all through the year and from all around the world who do not always realise how many monuments and masterpieces of art our province can offer them.

The province of Pisa is an expanse of artistic heritage, that goes far beyond the very famous Piazza dei Miracoli, in the rest of the city and among the splendid hills and Medieval hamlets of the Pisan countryside .

Pisa, thanks to its glorious past, offers the visitor the splendid Piazza dei Miracoli, a UNESCO heritage site, with the Dome and its bell tower; (the famous leaning Tower), the monumental Camposanto (cemetery), the fourteenth century Battistero (baptistery). But in addition to this Pisa is the city of the Lungarni, belts of noble Renaissance buildings locked together, a web of small Medieval alleyways, beautiful old buildings and churches.
