You say Pisa and you think Leaning Tower, and under the shadow of that world-famous Tower there are 25 centuries of history and glory, that you can discover with us. Galileo's birthplace is the town that dominated the Mediterranean See in the Middle Ages, a huge university campus among romanesque churches and medieval towers, all along the Arno river. Don't hesitate to let you lead around the streets and squares of this enchanting city,also out of the crowded Cathedral Square. Pisa is not alone in an area that offers splendid rolling hills, villas and castles doting this gorgeous Tuscan landscape: another town dominates it from the top of a higher hill, Volterra, still showing its severe Etruscan aspect, still protected by stonewalls that the Etruscans built 23 centuries ago. Let's come and visit Galileo's and Bocelli's native area, helped by an insider, your TOSCANA INSIEME Guide.
