The Leaning Tower of PisaBuilding started on the tower in 1173 and due to shifting soil the foundations moved causing a 5° incline. The tower almost got dangerously off balance but its stability was rectified between 1991 and 2001. The city decided not to straighten it for fear of frightening off all the tourists. Obviously you have to take the photo of you holding it up but you should also take the time to climb the 294 steps to the top and admire the panoramic views of the city below.
Piazza dei MiracoliThe tower is actually just the bell tower of the majestic Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta. Explore the square containing three buildings that represent the main stages of human life. Birth - the impressive baptistry with its ornate cupola roof, Marriage - the Duomo itself with its Pisan Romanesque design and separate campanile and Death - the Camposanto (cemetery) said to be built on sacred soil from the site of Christ's crucifixion. Choose a Bed and Breakfast Pisa in the neighborhood and spend some time admiring the three slightly crooked monuments in the piazza.
Knights SquareDuring your stay in a Bed and Breakfast Pisa visit the second most beautiful square in town, the Piazza dei Cavalieri. Once the headquarters of the order of the knights the square is lined by stunning palazzos built in the renaissance style. Maybe grab a Cecina, a local gluten free bread made from chickpeas.
