A Perfect Visit to Pisa on a Day Trip from Florence

Pisa is one of the most famous cities in Italy, yet many people don’t get beyond the story of its iconic and much-photographed ‘Leaning Tower’. While it has become world renowned for that particular piece of precarious architecture, there’s so much more to this beautiful city than just that. For many years it was a major power in Italy’s history, and its heritage as a centre for education endures and drives the modern-day local economy, along with tourism. The centre of the city is compact and very accessible, so it’s easily explored on a day trip from Florence.
