  9. How to see Pisa without the crowds?

    […] We only had 1 day in Pisa and we didn’t make it past the main square. We walked a bit around the hospital grounds behind the main square of Pisa, but we didn’t explore the rest of the town, as I was just too tired. I also had a big flare up for my Crohn’s disease so we decided to head back to our hostel and take a nap. If you’re fit and healthy, there is no need to do this, but please use your time to explore the rest of Pisa. Head down town, walk along the river Arno and explore the local market. For more inspiration on what you can do, visit Indiana Jo and read her things to do in Pisa in 1 day. […]

    what you’ve written somehow tells me what to expect in Pisa.. I’m planning to go there hopefully next year.. 🙂 I just want to clarify though. is there a need for me to purchase tickets just to see (or take pictures of ) the monuments in the Campo dei Miracoli even with no intention of getting in or going up? Thanks!
