Pisa, the Square of Miracles!
I can say that it is the most beautiful square in the world!
Actually Pisa is not in our original plan during the trip to Italy. At 1st I thought it’s very far from Florence as I saw it on the map. But when we arrived in Florence, Leonardo told us it’s just an hour away from Florence by train! So, we decided to go without any hesitation!
The train from Florence, Santa Maria Novella to Pisa took about one and a half hour! It costs about 5.60 Euro per way. Don’t forget to verify your ticket before you board on the train! And the train was as nice as other major intercity trains as well!
Most of the travelers took a day trip to Pisa. But if you have extra time during your journey, why not spend a night there and you will experience something unexpected while exploring the city and waiting for the sunset! It is amazing watching sunset along the Arno Riverbanks!
Pisa, the name of the city is undoubtedly very ancient: thru the millennia, right from the period of its foundation by Ibero-Ligurians, it remained unchanged, whereas another Pisa in the Mediterranean later changed its name to Olympia. Famous for its bell tower and known as Europe’s most ancient maritime city! A place you must not miss while traveling Italy!
3.60Euro will be enough for you to get on the bus from Pisa Centrale to Piazza dei Miracoli.
Gate of Santa Maria, The Baptistery, cathedral and not to miss the Leaning Tower making it the most miracle square in the world, attracting millions of tourists per year!
The magic gate of Santa Maria suddenly reveals to us, beyond the medieval walls, the green garden, where the marble architecture of Piazza dei Miracoli superbly raised! They stand there, as if they were suspended an ideal, poetical dimension out of time and the city area.
Here is, on the deep green of the meadow, the cylindrical and massive structure of the Baptistery, and that white jewel of balance, the marble Cathedral and the Leaning Tower, slender in its round dance loggias and arches.
The square is superbly beautiful! For those who plan to have their honeymoon in Italy, Pisa is a very sweet and memorable place for you guys to make the wedding photos.
Please take note that posing for the picture is very important! If you don’t know or don’t have any idea of posing, please learn before you go! You are standing in the most beautiful square in the world! Try to imagine if your pose does not match the world class standard?
Picnic here with the amazing view? Yes! I think you can do it although there’s a signboard warning the tourists not to step on the grass, but most of the travelers seemed to just ignore it.
Tourists:” We are not walking, but we’re sitting, standing, posing! ;P”
And for those who wish to buy cheap souvenirs for their relatives and friends, the souvenir shops along the street offer you very nice and cheap price!
