Experience Pisa: what to see, what to do
Most travellers visit Pisa to see the world-famous leaning tower with their own eyes but this beautiful Tuscan city has a lot more to offer than that. The city in fact has a handful of other UNESCO sights. Planning holidays in Pisa? Here are some ideas will get you started.
Essentials in Pisa
The Tower: It's a landmark not only for Pisa but for Italy. It's one of the most famous buildings in the world. The Bell Tower was built between 1173 and 1350 and began to slowly tilt over time. The foundation was recently restored so hopefully this tower won't be doing any more leaning any time soon.
Santa Maria Assunta: The cathedral located directly beside the leaning tower was built between 1063 and 1118 and is worth visiting just to see the central nave's coffered ceilings, frescoes and the pulpit. It's an incredible piece of architecture.
Museo di San Matteo: Once you'v explored the Piazza dei Miracoli take your Pisa car hire to the Piazza San Matteo. This museum has a fantastic collection of historical artefacts and art, most all of the original artwork from the churches in Pisa.

Rome's favourite monument is tilting to the southern side, a whole 40cm. Tests are being run to see how desperate repairs are needed to preserve the structure.
