Planning Your Visit
If offbeat buildings are you thing, make your next trip the tiny village of Suurhusen, Germany, whose church's steeple beats Pisa's tower by 1.22 degrees.
Festival of lights
The Luminara festival is held every June in Pisa, in case you want to plan your trip around it - the spectacular sight of 10,000 candles along the River Arno shouldn't be missed if you can help it!
Eat for cheap
Unsurprisingly, the area around the Leaning Tower is very busy and therefore the prices are heavily inflated. Wander Pisa's winding streets for an authentic dining experience and more affordable prices!
Beware of fraudsters
Unfortunately, tourists can be targets of crime in Pisa - keep your belongings close to you and be wary if strangers approach you offering help.
