Living Pisa

Pisa is the ideal city to live an experience in Italy. It is a small medieval city, easy to walk around. Here you can found the famous Leaning Tower, declared a UNESCO Human Heritage site along with the whole Piazza dei Miracoli.

Through its streets and squares it is possible to re-experience a lot of events of Italian history: Pisa has been one of the four maritime Republics, the setting of Galileo Galilei’s experiments and it has hosted some of the most famous Italian poets, like Ugo Foscolo and Vittorio Alfieri.

Pisa is also located in an advantageous position, since it takes a very short time to reach the sea, the hills, the mountains and the great artistic cities such as Firenze, Lucca and Siena (maximum 1h trip).

There are a lot of restaurants where you can eat typical Tuscany dishes and the famous “cecina” of Pisa, a chickpea flour pastry baked in wood-burning hoven!

Furthermore, Pisa is a college town, location of famous Scuola Normale Superiore and Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, so here you can find a lot of concerts, literary café and, if you like it, an animated night-life.
