    Beautiful city, though not a lot to do and generally quite expensive. All the sightseeing is pretty steap, The Leaning Tower of Pisa is 18 euros, and the view from up there is NOT that good.

    Worth a visit

    Pisa was definitely not my favorite city. It is mostly known as a party city, and since we didn't have time to party we were just there for the tower. If this is your same situation I would recommend making it a stop, spend 4-5 hours max and move on to another more enjoyable city for the night.

    If you have seen the tower, you have seen it all!

    as the title says, there really is not a lot to do in Pisa. By all means though take those touristy snaps and hang out on the grass around the leaning tower it makes for a good atmosphere!

    Its a really small city so you don't need more than 1 night to explore. Walk everywhere and make sure you visit all their churches and gardens - especially the botanic's as it's really nice. The tower is actually quite impressive and the best thing to do is sit down and watch everyone try to take funny pictures.

    Insider Tip:The shops all close for a siesta around 1-4. This is the perfect time to relax in one of the parks or have a nap yourself.

    The city famed for its leaning tower is a reasonably nice stopover when travelling around Tuscany, enough to do and see for a day or two, makes a suitable base for exploring surrounding areas due to good transport connections but isn't that amazing in itself, wouldn't recommend for a weekend away on its own.

Italy: Itinerary

Forgotten by too many travellers when visiting Italy as it is more commonly known for its fashion and rather than its culture, Milan is somewhere you should stick on your itinerary. Granted, it can be slightly more brazen than other Italian cities, but it also has some breathtaking architecture and intriguing museums.
