The Guelph tower was bombed during the Second World War and was rebuilt after the conflict. It opens on the occasion of temporary exhibitions. The statue at the base of the Tower portrays a great scientist, Galileo Galilei. Do you know where he was born? And can you tell why he is so famous? La torre Guelfa, bombardata, fu ricostruita dopo la Seconda Guerra Mondiale. (Answer 1 at the bottom of the page)

Then there are the Arsenali Repubblicani, where Pisa, at the time of the Maritime Republic, built the boats to conquer the Mediterranean. Also in these spaces, recently restored, there could be a temporary exhibition. And then the Arsenali Medicei, where the Museum of Ancient Ships is now located. Go to the discovery of the 30 ships dated between the 2nd century BC and the 5th century AD! What was traded in that period? Why have the bones of so many dogs been found? What other animals populated these lands? In this area there is also a large green space, it's worth playing around with!
