Everyone knows that Pisa has a tower and that the tower leans. This spectacular tower is located in Piazza dei Miracoli, one of the most beautiful squares in Italy. After taking one of those funny “stereotypical” tourist photos, climb to the top of the belltower. The stairway is made of almost 300 marble stairs but the view is worth the effort. From the very top of the tower it’s possible to admire a breathtaking view over the city, the Arno river, surrounding mountains and far in the distance, the sea is visible on sunny days.Everyone comes here to see the tower, but Piazza dei Miracoli is also home to one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Italy, the Duomo of Santa Maria dell’Assunta. This church is an excellent example of Roman-Pisan Gothic architecture and is completely made of white marble. The contrast of colors between the white façade of the Duomo and the surrounding green grass is simply spectacular.
