The wealth of a city lies in its history and in the historical testimonies it has managed to preserve. The history of Pisa and of the many personalities who lived in this place and have contributed to enhancing the city with their works, is today celebrated in the many and varied museums that characterize it with their uniqueness and beauty.
This route will lead you through the centuries of history that the city has gone through. You will be able to walk among the recently discovered ancient ships, visit historic palaces and religious buildings that house works of art of all ages or in which figures such as Galileo Galilei resided and worked, discover the skeletons of huge dinosaurs and large cetaceans in a frame of incomparable beauty such as the Cistercian Charterhouse of Calci, and see works of modern human ingenuity in the museums of the Pisa University and the Piaggio museum in Pontedera.
