  • Is a square famous for being the place where the normal and other buildings for most academic purposes. Also it is often busy as hub of campus life. The evening is usually crowded with guys.

  • Square surrounded by buildings completely painted and a small fountain. Worth a stop by if you're in Pisa.

  • It is very nice also because reduced traffic. Less frequented of the much more famous piazza dei Miracoli, does have some interesting architectural works on it overlook: the palazzo della Carovana, home of the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, the headquarters of the order of the Knights of Santo Stefano, by order of the Knights of Malta, the palazzo Dell'Orologio.
