Pisa's origins are lost in the mists of time, but it first came to prominence as a Roman port in the 1st century BC. During the Middle Ages, it burgeoned into a maritime republic and a powerful trading center in the Mediterranean.
In the 12th century, the city's iconic Leaning Tower, part of the Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles), began to take shape. Its unintentional tilt has since become a symbol of both engineering miscalculation and human ingenuity.
Pisa's golden age waned as rival cities like Florence gained ascendancy, but its university, founded in 1343, became a beacon of learning during the Renaissance, attracting luminaries like Galileo Galilei.
The city's maritime prowess and architectural heritage continue to captivate travelers, with landmarks like the Duomo and Baptistery standing as testament to its storied past.
Today, Pisa beckons as a living museum, where history and artistry converge along its winding streets and picturesque riverbanks.
