Nice visit when talking a walk through town. Vehicles and carriages do come through occasionally so be mindful when taking pictures. Wheelchair accessible.

If you walk to the Leaning tower of Pisa then try to follow the Rute via this place. The vibes of the place was great, with musicians playing and horse cart around . A nice place with a huge square to sit and enjoy .

Due largely to the fine buildings on the square especially the Scuola Normale Superiore with its marble staircases.
