Main attractions in Pisa
We will stop at Piazza dei Miracoli (Field of Miracles), where you will have time for pictures. This is the one of the most photographed squares in Italy because of the oustanding Leaning Tower (Torre di Pisa). Visitors usually have fun when taking pictures here and they pretend to support the tower from falling down. Today the tower leans at almost 4 degrees. Restoration works were done to stabilise it. But the Leaning Tower is part of a more important architectural complex in this square. Indeed, you will find here the Duomo and the Baptistry as well. The name Field of Miracles comes from the words of the famous poet Gabriele D’Annuzio after flying over the city. After this visit, we will drive to another beautiful square, Piazza Dei Cavalieri, with its stunning facade designed by Vasari. On our way, you will also see the picturesque Lungarno, the main street along the river Arno with its historic buildings and many shops.
