  • Fantastic collection of medieval artwork and no crowds. We were able to walk right in and take our time without lots of jostling for position to see the most famous pieces. A welcome break from the Rome and Florence museum experience.
  • Spent hours appreciating these medieval treasures. All I can say is that if you travel to Pisa, Lucca or Florence, I would not leave this hidden gem out of your itinerary.
  • Really outstanding collection of medieval art, sculptures by the Pisanos plus Masaccios and Ghirlandaio. Really worth the 5 Euros and as a bonus no hordes of turists, one can really take the time to admire.
  • Outstanding collection of Renaissance sculptures and paintings.
  • Excellent museum of medieval fine arts and culture!

Where to stay in Pisa

Pisa possesses plenty of architecturally interesting places to stay, but it also caters to those who want to see but don't feel the need to stay in tourist attractions themselves. North of the river Arno, you'll find a number of hotels, standing proudly on the edges of lively piazzas. Budget-friendly options include hostels and guesthouses around this historic district, and a few simple hotels located close to the airport in the south of the city.
