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.
One of the most famous attractions on the Lungarni
Palazzo Gambacorti was built between 1370 and 1392 on behalf of Pietro Gambacorti. There is still a bit of controversy regarding the identity of the architect - some believe him to be Tommaso Pisano.
The facade of Palazzo Gambacorti is in fourteenth-century Gothic-style, with elegant mullioned windows. The back of the building features a seventeenth-century facade, with tall windows with semicircular gables and a beautiful portal with the Medici coat of arms.
Inside the palace, a museum of frescoes celebrating the maritime victories of Pisa.
