  • I came to this place because here stood the Tower of count Ugolino, story narrated by Dante. Then I realised I have before me the rise, one of the most prestigious universiotari, a show. The square is definitely full of charm and really characteristic.

  • The square is very famous, there are green areas all around the three main buildings
  • One of the most beautiful squares in Pisa. Also famous for the tower where he was imprisoned Count Ugolino
  • Quaint little plaza away from all the hustle and bustle of Pisa. Not much to see here, except for the university. There are a few interesting statues nearby, and taking a walk in the area is a great activity for a few hours.
  • Beautiful renovated square. There's so much more to Pisa than only the tower!
  • They finished the work on the Pisa tower, no more cables, and the two buildings aside are all cleaned up, Beauty!
