Pisa is famous for it’s leaning tower (which, perhaps obviously, really does lean! I’m not an engineer, but it looks like some laws of physics are being defied by the fact that that building has not fallen over yet.) but it also has a gorgeous cathedral and the same network of winding streets filled with cafes, restaurants and other sundry businesses as every Italian town. The cathedral and the tower are clearly the high points of the tourist itinerary in the town, but a wander around the streets surrounding them, and in the streets between the train station and the Piazza dei Miracoli is a very worthwhile way to while away an afternoon.
