Top 5 things to do in Pisa

Even though I only spent a day in Pisa, I love it (the creepy incident with the guy following me to the train station aside – see this post) and I am definitely going to go back one day!  These are my Top 5 must-see things in Pisa (so far!)

The main reason so many people visit Pisa.  The Tower is impressive (and it’s leaning a lot more than I thought it would be!) but I didn’t climb it, as the queue was so big and I was only in Pisa for a day.  At least it gives me an excuse to go back!

There’s not much more to say about Pisa Cathedral other than that it is absolutely stunning and well worth a visit!

I loved the Baptistry and how hushed it seemed inside – being able to go up the stairs was interesting as well – they were so uneven!  There’s also an amazing view of the Cathedral from one of the upstairs windows.

I found this place fascinating.  It’s a cemetery but the graves are under the marble flooring (and, I’m ashamed to say, it took me a while before I realised I was walking on graves…).  The original incense lamp that Galileo used for his work is hanging in the Aulla Chapel in the Camposanto and is definitely worth a look.

This is definitely the best way to explore Pisa, with all its tiny roads.  I found some really nice, quiet areas with barely any tourists, as well as some stunning buildings.  I’m definitely going back one day!
