Pisa

The coastal city of Pisa is found in the center of a fertile plain in northwestern Tuscany, a strategic geographic position that allowed it to become an important Naval Republic during the Middle Ages.
The Leaning Tower of Pisa is without a doubt the monument that represents the city of Pisa in the world, even if not many know that it is the cathedral's bell tower given its unusual position. The Cathedral and its Tower, the Baptistery and the Camposanto (necropolis) are all found in the Piazza dei Miracoli, the Square of Miracles, one of the most beautiful squares in Italy and the world which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Pisa was the birthplace of one of modernity's greatest scientists, Galileo Galilei.
