Who said that Pisa is a city only for adults?

Of course, children who visit Pisa must be good explorers, because the city reserves for them some fantastic places to visit. The city retains mighty medieval walls, the statue of the girl who saved the city from the assault of the Saracens, the wall of the of a  friars convent painted with strange figures by the contemporary artist Keith Haring, parks, gardens, museums ad many other things to discover.

Outside the city, just a few kilometres from the centre, you can immerse yourself in the beautiful park of the Tenuta di San Rossore and visit the Museum of Natural History in Calci. You can alco climb, accompanied by adults, along the trails of the nearby Monte Pisano or take long walks in the thick of the pine forests, or among the sand dunes and rocks of the coast.

Have a good exploration!

For information about the route on the medieval walls, you can visit the site dedicated to the ancient walls of Pisa.

The San Rossore estate and the 'Ippooasi' animal farm/shelter, the Museum of Natural History of Calci, Monte Pisano and its trails, and the Pisan coast are not part of the city pedestrian circuit and can be reached by public or private transport.

Finally, we would like to inform you that the Museum of Calculation Instruments and the Museum of Physics Instruments are temporarily closed for renovations.
