Things to Do in Pisa
Of course, a trip to Pisa would not be complete without taking a visit to the amazing Leaning Tower of Pisa. You might want to spend a bit of time in the green surroundings as you perfect your 'holding the tower up' pose, you know what we're talking about! Another unmissable attraction is the Piazza dei Miracoli, a peaceful square that's great to roam around on a sunny day. Here you'll find the medieval Cathedral, the Archdiocese of Pisa. It's elegant white marble colour makes it look spectacular, even from a distance. Last on the list is the Chiesa di Santa Maria della Spina, a 13th century, Gothic style church. Interestingly, 'della spina' means 'of the thorn' so this church was given its name in order to remember the thorn crown placed on Jesus' head during his Crucifixion.
