Mention the city of Pisa and one thing will probably spring to mind. The Leaning Tower. Hundreds of thousands flock to this city every year to see the tilting building that has been steadily sinking into the ground ever since the third floor of the tower was built.
However there is much more to this city than an architectural mis-hap. The University of Pisa is one of the world’s most established, Galileo even studied here don’t you know! With this elite university attracting students from around the world, this thriving young population lends itself well to the lively café scene Pisa has developed over recent years. So in this compact city, you won’t be far from a good Italian coffee if you fancy one!
Located just off shore in the romantic area of Tuscany, Pisa is near enough the coastline if you fancy a day by the ocean and is also within easy reach of the two beautiful Italian cities of Florence and Siena.
