Visit Tuscany's focal point of medieval architecture and fine art at Piazza dei Miracoli. Four historical buildings anchor this designated sacred area: the Pisa Cathedral, the Pisa Baptistery, the monumental cemetery, and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Wander the manicured green lawns of the plaza, taking in the view of the towering, white stone buildings and their ornate facades. Admire the beautiful marble arches and coffered ceiling of the cathedral with five naves. For more information on the site's history and cultural legacy, visit the plaza's Sinopias Museum or the Cathedral Museum.

  • The piazza at night is quite spectacular. Under the moonlight it really glows, the marble looks stunning. Some things are better at night.  more »
  • This is the so called Field of Miracles where the Leaning Tower and other buildings are located. Very picturesque with many tourists doing their 'hold the tower up' poses, etc. Lovely photos against.....  more »

  • First trip to Pisa. How lovely. Some amazing photo attempts of holding up the tower! Nice meander and very good pizza....tuna, pineapple, sweet corn and red onion! Nice glass of rose. Very friendly staff who spoke excellent English.
  • If you are in Florence or somewhere in the area it is worth taking an hour local train ride to visit this place. The plaza contains the Cathedral Archdiocese of Pisa which of course the world renown leaning tower of Pisa is a part of. The place is full of tourists but you can still enjoy yourself by visiting the Duomo and/or the tower. Be sure to check the schedule and get on the list as the line to climb the tower may be very long.
  • This is a kind of place one likes or not depending on expectations. Obviously Tower of Pisa is a historic and a good place to visit, however it's not a imposing structure to overwhelm you. Nonetheless it is a historic place to visit. Apart from leaning Tower of Pisa, cathedral, cemetery and dome there is not much you can see. However if you are keen in history you can spend more than a day. Otherwise a day trip is sufficient. Obviously you can have very good food here. During summer it will be a very hot. May be a evening (after 4pm) visit would be a good option.
  • It's the most beautiful place.. Medieval time horse race(palio Race) Is yet carried out on 2 July and 16 August every year so visit it at that time to enjoy the authentic vibe. Lots of bars cafes and souvenirs to choose from as well.
  • Loved it. Enjoyed just chilling on the lawns, relaxing and taking in the square and the buildings. A nice way to enjoy a sight and just be able to relax. Not as rushed as most other tourist spots.
