A popular day trip from Florence, the famous town of Pisa is most well-known for its Leaning Tower. But other equally notable charms include its long maritime legacy, its prized university and its status as the birthplace of Galileo Galilei. The Pisans also created one of the most beautiful squares in the world in the Campo dei Miracoli (Field of Miracles). Pisa is home to dozens of other historical churches and buildings such as the Museo delle Sinopie, the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo and the Museo Nazionale di San Matteo, with its range of Florentine art from the 12th to the 17th century.
