Piazza Dei Miracoli - Review

Tourists from all over the world flock to the ‘Square of Miracles’ for its beauty, rich history and to take pictures of themselves holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The Piazza is home to the world famous tower and its cathedral, a Baptistery and a cemetery, all of which you can explore. In the evenings, you can take a walk on the green grasses and admire the statues that decorate it. You can eat a delicious dinner as the Leaning Tower lights up against the night sky.

The Square came into being in 1064 and became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the 1980’s. It’s become associated with religious life, with the Baptistery symbolizes birth, the Cathedral life and the graveyard death. All the beautiful buildings in the Piazza were constructed between the 11th and 15th centuries, as a symbol of Pisa’s economic power.  As you wander through the Square, the grandeur will inspire you, which is befitting as the Pisans spent an enormous amount in creating these splendid structures. The cathedral was built first and its grey marbled Romanesque figure, along with its world famous bell tower, are the heart of the square. The baptistery came about in 1152 directly in front of the church and in 1277, the graveyard.

Pisa has always been a city that attracted many visitors, thanks to its status as a Maritime Republic. The cathedral stands as testament to how far the Pisan sailors travelled, with Islamic elements integrated into its design. The Pisan sailors admired the beauty of North Africa and Middle East and in turn, sailors from as far as the Arab world were smitten by the city’s artistic architecture. There’s quite a bit of historical significance attached to the Piazza as well, such as the soil used in the cemetery was carried back from the Holy Land, where Jesus was crucified.

Visitors will be enchanted by the happy, peaceful vibe that blankets the Square. You can rent tandem bikes and cycle around the square, while people relax on the plush lawns and bask in the beauty of the buildings in front of them. Make the dizzying journey up the Leaning Tower and find yourself in the same position as German troops during the Second World War, who used the tower as a lookout. The climb is hard but the view makes it all worth it. Don’t forget to take your camera in order to document your journey to this Wonder of the World. Visit the cathedral and look at the dazzling mosaic work of Cimabue. Afterwards, you can visit the museums in the area, in order to gain a better understanding of the significance of the Square of Miracles. You can dine in any of the many restaurants in the area and as the sun sets, the Tower is lit up. Once your experience is over, you can buy a trinket as a token of remembrance from the many vendors in the area. Perfect for history buffs, art lovers and explorers, the Piazza makes for one heck of a day.

With its rich history and picturesque surrounding, not to mention the Leaning Tower of Pisa, this beautiful square of miracles is quite a charm, attracting myriads of visitors everyday.

Piazza Dei Miracoli, Pisa Reviews

  • The spot is a nice place for drawing. We had to draw a part of the Piazza del Duomo and it turned out pretty nice. But that's irrelevant. It's a nice place. It looks pretty good and there is a McDonald's. If you go here you have to watch out for the people who try to sell you things. They have very shady tactics to make you pay for it. They charge you a lot of money and you need to make sure you do some things to make the price less. The McDonald's is good too, but it's pretty cheap and not very clean

  • One hears a lot about the leaning tower of Pisa. None of those stories or pictures do it justice. It's quite a thing to see it up close and notice just how far it's really leaning. The experience is much more than just the tower. The other buildings surrounding it, and the local shops and cafes are interesting as well. This is definitely a tourist stop not to be missed.

  • Mention of leaning tower of Pisa not only appears in History & Geography but also in Physics. While defying the gravity, as per a story, it has also helped to demonstrate a quintessential property of gravity. Seeing a tourist spot with own eyes is always better as compared to reading information or viewing photos. I appreciated this on visiting the tower. Somehow, I had a delusion that the tower is a standalone structure. In reality, the tower is a part of a Cathedral. It is a watchtower. Leaning posture of the marble tower on the backdrop of perfectly vertical marble walls of the Cathedral immediately strikes to the eye. Tourist vehicles are not allowed inside the city. These are parked in a designated spot away from the tower. From here a complimentary City bus service drops the tourists near the tower. The path from the drop off point of the bus & the Cathedral complex is lined up with many eateries & souvenir shops. A limited number of tickets are available for entry to the tower as per chosen time slots. Gratis WiFi is available inside the entire complex.

  • You should not leave Florence without visiting this plaza. This cathedral looks like something out of a black and white comic book or something with it's white and black shell. It is really one of the most remarkable looking cathedrals in all the world. If you miss this cathedral the one in Sienna is very similar. if you want to see the interior of the church you need to book tickets in advance or you will probably not get in.

  • Wow is one word to describe it. You have to get the local shuttle bus to get to this place after parking your vehicle a couple of kilometres away. Wash room facilities is very bad in fact it is limited to a McDonald's outlet which is near the piazza. You buy something you will be given a ticket which entitles you free use of wash room. If not you have to pay 50 cents. Don't be bugged by the people from Africa trying to sell souvenirs and bags to you. They will speak a little bit of Hindi, Mandrin (Chinese) and such languages to impress you. Be careful while dealing with them just to be on a safer side do not display all the cash you are carrying, it might be an invitation for a robbery. I am not saying these people are robbers but it is a tourist place and it is better not to be the centre of attraction. These people have such poor conditions back home and they consider being alive itself as a luxury. So if you buy something from them it would be of help to them but always check for the prices at the local shops too and compare. Bargaining is allowed.
