Pisa City Breaks

GENERAL

Pisa Boasts a Plethora of Romanesque Monuments

To consider Pisa as a one sight wonder certainly doesn¿t tell the whole story! There is much more to enjoy on this Italian city break than the Leaning Tower of Pisa. A medieval maritime power, now a thriving university town, Pisa boasts a plethora of Romanesque monuments around its signature landmark. The aptly titled 'Piazza dei Miracoli' (Square of Miracles) hosts the splendid cathedral Duomo di Pisa and the Baptistery, a huge domed structure worthy of a climb if you wish to show off photos over Pisa with the Leaning Tower of Pisa in view, all attractively surrounded by large green lawned areas.

Other places of note to satisfy the appetite of history and art lovers on a city break to Pisa, are the Camposanto; regarded by many as the worlds most beautiful cemetery, Museo dell'Opera del Duomo and Museo delle Sinopie, the latter housing artwork that was unearthed by accident as precious pieces were moved to protect them during the 2nd World War.

There is also more to Pisan cuisine than Pizza and Pasta. Pisa's location guarantees a rich variety of dishes traditionally prepared with the rich produce locally grown in the Tuscan hills or seafood caught locally. Either way there is no shortage of local wines to choose from to complement the cuisine of your choice.

Pisa, come along and experience it for yourself.
