Little to see just 2 historical buildings in the piazza without much historical detail, a walkway to the shops for most tourists

Its a quiet square, but nothing to see here. If you want to see nice buildings, go to Pisa's carhedral, cemetery and tower which are impressive. The buildings on knight's square or just 'old buildings'. There are many old buildings.

Never seen a buildning like the one with ”paintings” on the entire wall. Very cool! The area around is also calm and not crowded at all, nice place to enjoy a drink while sitting on the stairs.

Nice little place, when we were there the set up was for a concert. Beautiful old buildings with fun painted façades, that’s about it.

A large empty Piazza with some pretty buildings but very little else. Additionally, there is traffic criss-crossing apparently ramdomly across the square as there are no road markings. Not particularly worth going out of your way to visit.

On the square there are three palaces and a church. In one of the palaces is today a part of Pisa University. (Bonaparte Napoleon founded!) The square was already in the oman period known, later it was the political centre of Pisa.

Square that is on the main route between the station and Tower and has some grand buildings. Stage erected during our stay where concerts performed. If one of these was a paying event entry to the square was not allowed.

One of the oldest squares - piazzas of Pisa. Majestic buildings but otherwise quite boring because there is nothing else on it like restaurants. There was however movies showing every evening on a temporary screen.

A large open plan space to leisurely roam while taking in the history and architecture. Open to full sun in the day. Interesting tunneled walk ways off the square.

Walked through this square every day it is beautiful and many of the buildings seem to still be part of a functioning university.
