From the fountain we start exploring my city from the southern side all the way up to the Leaning Tower on the northern side, learning about the four districts Pisa is divided into all inside the Medieval perimeter wall.
After visiting the mural by Keith Haring, the largest he ever painted and the only one meant to be permanent, you will stroll along the busy and pedestrian Corso Italia all the way up to the river Arno enjoying the views from the riverbanks and visiting the districts of San Antonio and San Martino with their highlights.
Past the river you'll go through the very heart of Pisa, walking along the Borgo Stretto and visting the districts of San Francesco (Galileo's neighborhood) and Santa Maria.
Before getting to the Cathedral and Leaning Tower there will be a stop at the beautiful Piazza dei Cavalieri, once the heart of the Medieval Maritime Republic of Pisa, completely redesigned at the end of the Sixtheenth Century by Florentine architects.
