Do not miss
Piazza dei Miracoli: it took its current appearance in 19th Century thanks to Alessandro Gherardesca, and in 1987 it was also declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO. In the middle of the square there are the most important monuments of the city:
- The Cathedral: in Romanesque style, begun in 1063 by the architect Buscheto and continued by Rainaldo (even today are recognizable the two different participations) it's composed by colored marbles, mosaics, bronzes and it shows clear influences from the Islamic and Byzantine architecture.
- The Leaning Tower: started in 1173 by Bonanno Pisano on a Diotisalvi's project, it was left unfinished and then carried out by Giovanni di Simone and later by Tommaso Pisano; its distinctive inclination is due to the soft ground present throughout the area.
- The Baptistery: started in the mid-twelfth century by the architect Diotisalvi in Romanesque style, was then continued in Gothic style by Nicola and Giovanni Pisano and it's the largest baptistery in Italy. Inside there are masterpieces such as the Baptismal Font by Guido Bigarelli da Como and the Pulpit by Nicola Pisano.
- The Camposanto: in this monumental cemetery started in 1277 by Giovanni di Simone, worked the greatest painters of the time, like Buonamico Buffalmacco and Francesco Traini, Andrea Bonaiuti, Antonio Veneziano and Spinello Aretino, Taddeo Gaddi and Benozzo Gozzoli.
