Pisa was the last place I've visited during my mini Toscana tour.

There are number of other churches inside the town, built in the same style. You'll find the traces of Romans, the Medici and the Guelphs. Less known is that Pisa is the most ancient maritime city of Europe. Last and not least, Pisa is situated at the confluence of two rivers, the Arno and the Serchio, which makes the town landscapes in particularly attractive.
