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.

We came across this lovely piazza by accident. The ornate facade of Palazzo della Carovana is simply amazing. A nice photo stop before visiting the famous Leaning Tower.

This distinguished school building has a remakable curved facade decorated in the 16th c. by Giorgio Vasari that is worth a detour.

Watch out, cars drive through and almost hit me. Crazy drivers and open area. Nothing too special, not worth a trip for itself.

Came across this square as we walked around Pisa and stood amazed at the beautiful building that sits in the heart of the Piazza.

Nice visit when talking a walk through town. Vehicles and carriages do come through occasionally so be mindful when taking pictures. Wheelchair accessible.

Take in this wonderful square with its historic architecture and atmosphere - a stunning school building, nice scale and just a short walk to the tower and restaurants
