Pisa is one of a long list of things to do in Italy, being one of the most recognisable buildings in the world for the slightly bizarre reason of the poor infastructure, considering it was built on marshy land. In fact, the word Pisa actually translates to marshy land. What’s interesting is, so famous is the Leaning Tower, that it is all you can find when you Google the city. I hope to change that over time, with plenty of great information on the different attractions. On that subject, I recommend having a read of my list of things to do in Pisa. Pisa is part of the Tuscany region and has a beautiful river which you can walk along and have a nice picnic next to. You may also enjoy the taste of cecina bread, which is a chickpea flatbread, a true embodiment of Tuscan culinary tradition. the bread is crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. If you arrive in June then you should get the chance to celebrate the Giugno Pisano festivals, celebrating the patron saint San Ranieri. This might be one of those destinations where you might struggle for ideas if you book for 2 weeks, but you can definitely pack out a week with fun, historic and exciting activities.
