Pisa City Breaks

Discover an ancient Tuscan jewel

You’ve seen the pictures. You might have even heard the story about the famous lean. Now it’s your turn to get a photo next to one of Italy’s most famous landmarks on your holiday to Pisa. Almost every holidaymaker heading to Pisa does so with the thought of seeing the Leaning Tower up close. It doesn’t disappoint. It’s one of those attractions which looks even better in the flesh. The tower is found in Pisa’s Campo dei Miracoli. But there is far more to Pisa than its tower. Just a walk around the city is a charming experience. As you wander down Pisa’s narrow, winding streets, you’ll come across quaint little shops selling souvenirs. If you’re feeling peckish, then there are plenty of trattorias and restaurants to discover on the back streets serving up some top notch grub. It's your turn to be in the frame.
