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.

Today, Caffè dell'Ussero is celebrated as a monument to Italian culture. Some famous people graced this locale, including Carlo Goldoni, Giacomo Casanova, Count Alfieri, Filippo Mazzeiand John Ruskin.
