Why are there so many people saying that Pisa is not worth the visit. Do they only visit the leaning tower? They are so wrong, there's so much more to see than the famous tower. Take your time to discover the other gems of this city.

Pros and Cons

    Helga, Perceptive, helpful, accurate portrayal of ALL of Pisa, not just the Tower...Hurrah! Loved your tips on Santa Maria della Spina, San Sisto, and the museum of the Sinopias. Enticing photographs and observant comments.

    I do agree than Pisa is much more than a leaning tower and I would add awesome surroundings... Great overview, stunning pic over the Arno River. I didn't meet your tourist trap there.

    I believe these are the first impressions of Pisa I've ever seen that go beyond the Duomo and Leaning Tower. Exceptional page!
