About Pisa Tourism
Located in the very heart of Italy and within the famed Tuscany region, Pisa is sited next to the River Arno and next to the Ligurian Sea. Steeped in history, Pisa is full of interest, with sights such as the Piazza dei Cavalieri, the Duomo di Pisa (Cathedral) and the nearby Piazza dei Miracoli, which is without doubt one of Europe's most appealing public squares.
However, most people fly into Galileo Galilei Airport (PIS) to see one thing alone, the world-famous Leaning Tower of Pisa (Torre Pendente). Dating back some 800 years, the Leaning Tower is now quite stable and is actually the bell tower to the adjacent cathedral. Nearby, the circular Battistero (Baptistery) is equally impressive and a pleasant surprise to visitors. Galileo Galilei Airport is well placed to explore this part of Italy and many Tuscan treasures are nearby, such as Calci, Lucca and even Florence.
