Large imposing building taking up most of one side of the Piazza Dei Cavalieri . We took a closer look at the large steps to the front that look like they should be somewhere else

Try visiting in the evening, when few people seemed to be around. This area of what might be called eastern Pisa is missed by many tourists

When we visited this square there was a second hand market and we passed our afternoon here but this square is stunning as every building you find here is very beautiful. Do not forget to look at the small details.

This is an impressive court yard area which is worth a visit as it has a number of lovely character buildings around it. You can take plenty of photo snaps and even see a horse drawn carriage with tourists on board passing through..
