Those with some time to spare in the Capannoli area will not want to miss out on Leaning Tower, the Piazza del Duomo and Santa Caterina.

Arena Garibaldi is a great place to catch a game of soccer, and to see local legends, the A.C. Pisa 1909, in action. On match days the area around the stadium becomes a sea of navy, black and red, as crowds flock together to get behind their home-grown heroes.
