Stop At: Piazza dei Miracoli

Piazza dei Miracoli ("Square of Miracles"), is called also Piazza del Duomo ("Cathedral Square"). This name was created by the poet Gabriele D'Annunzio, who, observing it from above on a plane, called it "Prato dei Miracoli" (Meadow of Miracles), because of the beautiful marble monuments which stand out on the surrounding green garden. The Square lies in a northern area of the city, that once was a graveyard and the seat of an Early Christian cathedral. Differently from other cities, Pisa's Cathedral Square is not inside the walls nor in the old town. The Duomo was the first monument to be built, followed by the construction of the Baptistery and of the Leaning Tower/the famous Pisa's Tower. Two sides of the square are enclosed in walls that date back to 1154.

Piazza delle Vettovaglie, a 16th century square is very popular amongst locals.

The marble panel with the units of measurement for the sale of products is still visible under the southern loggia. Today, the square is the centre of the university's nightlife. The square was the set of some scenes from Paolo Virzì's Ovosodo (Hardboiled egg) (1997). The film is mainly set in Livorno, but some scenes were shot in Pisa, in Piazza delle Vettovaglie, where a party takes place and is the meeting point between the two protagonists, played by Marco Cocci and Edoardo Gabriellini.
