The leaning tower is of course one of the biggest draws in Tuscany, but the Campo dei Miracoli holds three other architectural treasures all resplendent in white marble.
At the foot of the tower are two magnificent structures of Romanesque architecture, the domed cathedral and the circular baptistery with its ornate cupola rooftop. The shady colonnades of the Campo Santo, is a burial ground, with earth allegedly brought from Golgotha, where Jesus was crucified, so that noble Pisans could rest in holy ground.
The entire Campo dei Miracoli gleams in white marble under the Tuscan sunshine, in striking contrast to the bright green lawns.
Across the River Arno is the Palazzo Blu, former home to the doge and a peaceful retreat from the crowds with an elegant collection of 19th century furniture.
