Borgo Stretto - Review

Hop around from shop to shop, eating delicious, authentic gelatos on the way at BorgoStretto, Pisa’s most exuberant street. Filled with expensive shops and boutiques, this ancient road forms Pisa’s oldest district. Bookworms can rifle through endless pages at the bookstore, some can enjoy a warm coffee and watch people go by and others can bargain at the street market that’s towards the left side. This street is a curious combination of both old and new; it is on this street you will come across the spot where the house into which Galileo Galilei was born once stood, and this is now replaced with a coffee shop.

This colonnaded street, with its arches and strolling arcades, is splendid to look at. Its medieval styles planning is quaint and pretty, with the Gothic-Romanesque church San Michele adding to the streets’ allure. Located near the Piazza deiCavalieri, the street is home to numerous old artifacts such as the Big Bell Tower, which once summoned college students to their classes, and the house in which Galileo Galilei was born. Shops, restaurants and an open air market await you in the Piazza delleVettovaglie. The Piazza Garibaldi is famous for its statues and there’s even an ex casino.

This street is filled with students and backpackers, which is no surprise considering the colleges upon the nearby Piazza deiCavalieri. They gather here during their lunch hours and break, in order to grab a smoke, a bite to each and some fresh air. At the same time, tourists roam up and down in order to cover as much of Pisa as is possible. This narrow road is always busy, with visitors and regulars, buyers and vendors and the young and old. If you’re in Pisa, visiting the BorgoStretto is a must, even if it’s just to taste the most delicious Italian gelatos you’ll find in the world!
