Pisa is a city of both history and mystery. Historians are still unable to determine the origination of the name, and the study of archaeology was only recently, 1991, able to determine that Pisa has Etruscan origins. Known for its leaning tower, Pisa also has numerous historical cathedrals, palaces, and bridges. In fact, even ancient Rome considered Pisa an old city, which indicates that you will be visiting a piece of history almost unrivaled by any other location.
