Pisa is a city located in the Italian region of Tuscany. It has 88,332 inhabitants (11/2010) and is 185 square kilometers in size. The city is most well known for the Torre Pendente, or as it is commonly known around the world – the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Built as the bell tower for the Duomo di Pisa in the twelfth century, the main cathedral in the city, the tower started to lean after completion because of the ground below. In 2001, a project was completed to keep the tower from leaning further, allowing individuals to enter, climb to the top, and enjoy a magnificent view.
Other sights to see in Pisa include the Piazza dei Cavalieri, the Museo di San Matteo (art and history museum), and the Museo del Opera del Duomo.
One of the most beautiful things to see in Pisa is the Luminara festival, held on June 16. As sunset hits, all the lights along the Amu are dimmed and over 10,000 candles are lit. The night ends with an amazing fireworks display.
