  • Beautiful Piazza with absolutely fab architecture. Must see. Close to the major attractions. No entry fee.
  • Surely it is the 2nd main Pisa square. The name came out because in the 2nd part of the 16th century, the square became the headquarter of the Order of Knights of St. Stephen. Now you can see the main house of the "Scuola Normale" University.
  • Good place to sit and enjoy the street sound tracks in evening
  • Beautiful buildings. Quiet and not too touristic.
  • Good place to hang out at night with friends.
