Giovanni, a college professor , is the very knowledgeable & gracious guide for this tour which is only held on weekends. We had people from several countries on our tour, and he repeated the information in both English, and Italian so everyone could understand. The history of the tower is fascinating, and the views are beautiful!

We visited here with young children and older grandparents. Used to b a monastery, very interesting facade now home to a small aquarium and dinosaur exhibition. Personally found the aquarium section a little disappointing, I've seen more Koi carp at my local garden centre. But overall there is Lots to see. Lots of archeological items too. We could certainly have stayed longer but had time constraints on this visit. Wonderful big gift shop with extremely good informative/educational books about nature and the environment for children.

The Piaggio Museum is open also the second and the fourth sunday of the month from 10:00 to 18:00.
This is really very nice museum, many things ( related to the motorcycle culture) to see and observe. Quite opposite The first impression the city gives when you get off the train. You can come here from Pisa in 15 min. by train and visit the museum, and after that go to the main street of the city to sit in some pizza place. Pleasant.

It is called the Leaning Tower or the Tower of Pisa but actually it was never used for defending the city; it is part of the religious complex in the Duomo Square and acts as its bell tower. It played an active role in both human and divine timekeeping with its seven bells – one for each musical note – the largest of which, cast in 1655, weighs a full three and a half tonnes! It is known throughout the world for the beauty of its architecture, for its extraordinary tilt, which makes it an authentic miracle of statics, and for the fact that it stands in the universally renowned Piazza dei Miracoli, of which it is certainly the prize jewel. And this is why it is one of the 7 Wonders of the World.
This is definitely the No. 1 reason why you are in Pisa! If you want to go up the tower, it is better to book the tickets in advance but the tower is more beautiful from outside than inside.
I loved how the whole square with the leaning tower, the church, basilica and the cemetery are open to public at all hours.. you can visit the tower anytime! Early mornings and late nights make for great photos with no or few people around.
During the day, it is interesting to see everyone trying to get their own picture of having the tower on their tips or balancing it! :-)

Yes, visiting this museum you get that feeling of no-upgrades for long, long time.
Some sections look like old 19th Century collections with wooden reliquaries and type-writer labels under the specimens. And... we loved it!
All together it was a great experience. Some of the specimens are breath taking to be honest. The building itself, the Certosa would be worth visiting. Not to mention the biggest surprise, the best experience we had in Calci, right at the end of our visit:
The whales room.
It is simply incredible, with full skeleton of several whales (both toothed whales and baleen whales) and the full windows around it making the view spectacular.
All together, a really enjoyable experience

La Badia di San Savino si trova nel Comune di Cascina, Provincia di Pisa, vicino alla riva sinistra dell’Arno. Faceva parte di un grande complesso monastico, il Monastero di San Savino, ora trasformato quasi completamente in abitazioni private. Ancora oggi, passando sotto un’arcata e percorrendo un'ampia scalinata, s’accede al sagrato della chiesa, che fu costruita in stile romanico, con l'interno a croce latina. La torre campanaria e' stata ricostruita dopo che fu abbattuta dai tedeschi nel 1944.

Beautiful Church with some great historical artefacts, definitely worth a visit to this church both inside and out. It could do with updating the information so everyone can read all about the history

Miracoli! Gabriele D’Annunzio effectively condenses the wonder and admiration that catch whoever visits the Duomo Square of Pisa.
It is recommended in my view that you take enough time to experience and revel in all the stunning buildings of Piazza dei Miracoli. Beautifully set on green lawns with lovely decoration and architectural beauty, here is a lot to see and experience. The leaning tower always seems to be the most frequented, however the Battistero and Duomo are also must see attractions.
