Straddling over the River Arno just before it empties into the Tyrrhenian Sea is Pisa. It is most famously known for its Leaning Tower (the bell tower of the city's cathedral) which was an architectural project gone terribly wrong.
It also contains more than 20 other historic churches, several medieval palaces and various bridges across the River Arno. The city centre has a vibrant cafe and bar scene, and the architecture is stunning - Pisa is home to Gothic churches, Renaissance piazzas, and well-maintained Romanesque buildings.
This city has a vibrant street life - it is very lively with locals as well as tourists. Everywhere you turn here, you will discover a new story that Pisa has to offer.
