As in most Italian cities, Pisa has a central square around which the daily life of the city takes place. Here this is the Piazza dei Cavalieri. However, most tourists will be more familiar with Piazza del Duomo, which is usually called Campo dei Miracoli, and where the most famous buildings of the city are located.
Campo dei Miracoli (Piazza del Duomo)
The Campo dei Miracoli (“Field of Miracles”) is the most visited square in Pisa. Of course, it may have something to do with the fact that the Leaning Tower is there, but outside this popular sight there are other attractions, including the Cathedral and the Baptistery.
Piazza dei Cavalieri
The Piazza dei Cavalieri (“Square of Knights”) is one of the most beautiful squares in Pisa and is framed by a number of stately palaces. Vasari completely redesigned the square in the middle of the 16th century. The most striking building is the Palazzo dell’Orologio.
