Pisa in 2-3 days

You could probably see all of Pisa’s significant sights in one day, but where’s the fun in that?

This is Italy, so you won’t want to rush, and there’ll be plenty of stops for coffee, gelato, pizza, pasta …

On your first day explore the Campo dei Miracoli, including the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Bapistry, the Duomo and the Campo Santo burial grounds.

On day two take a walking tour around the city taking in the Piazza dei Cavalieri where you can marvel at medieval architecture including the Palazzo dell’Orologio.

Closeby is the Church of Santo Caterina, the Porta Lucca (a medieval gate) and the Churchs of San Zeno and San Francesco. Next head to Borgo Stretto – Pisa’s main colonnaded shopping street.
