Pisa Travel Guide

Western quarters

As we know Italy is a breathtaking country with historical sceneries and famous architectonic monuments, however, this entire human legacy is only a little part of its greatness. The western area has interesting sites to visit, as an example we can mention the University of Padua as you can find a big botanic garden called the Orto Botanico di Pavoda founded in 1545.The Orto Botanico di Padova is considered the first botanical institute in the entire world. This natural Italian Garden is open from Monday to Saturday 8:00 am -5:30 pm.

The Museo Nazionale di Palazzo Reale is another attractive site to consider; a wise combination of classic art, contrasts, colors and shapes, are immortalized in 900 portraits and painting pieces. The museum was built in 1989 and the responsible of this masterpiece is Buontalenti. If you are interested in the art and splendor of the museum, it is situated in Lugarno Pacinotti 46 from Monday to Saturday 9:00 am 2:00 pm.

The Arno is definitely one of the spectacular nature sceneries in Italy; this river is located in Tuscany and it is one of the most representative ones because it was the house of the ships in the late sixteenth century. Thanks to the excavation that took place to enlarge the train Station of Pisa San Rossore, workers found old ships from roman times, and so the archeological Museo delle navi antiche di Pisa was built and shows all the roman navy pieces nowadays. The schedule to visit the Museum during weekdays is 10.00 am; 7:00 pm, and at weekends 11:00 am; 10:00 pm.

The fortezza vecchia as its Italian name says is a beautiful antique port in Livorno. In order to protect the city, the Florentine Government started the edification of this port in 1506. Many tourists go there and spend time at the pretty harbor.
