A city of Miracoli

Unlike Florence, which is highly commercialized, Pisa is serene and laid-back. Known all over the world for its leaning tower (Torre pendente) and the Campo dei Miracoli, Pisa still stays the least-known of the Italian cities. A Rennaisance city that was once a wealthy seaport, it welcomes today tourists from all over the world with its Pisan-Romanesque style churches, the Campo Santo (the most beautiful cemetery in the world), trattorias, boutiques, and an atmosphere of cultured bohemia.

The largest baptistery in Italy Editors' Note

The Battistero (Baptistry) stands opposite the west end of the Duomo in Piazza dei Miracoli (Piazza del Duomo). The Baptistry is popular mainly because it offers the best views of the Leaning Tower from its top observation deck.

The Battistero (Baptistry) is a round Romanesque building, dating from the 12th century, and dedicated to St. John the Baptist. The dome was designed by Diotisalvi, and later enhanced by Nicola Pisano and Giovanni Pisano.
