Welcome to Pisa

Welcome to the University of Pisa! Founded in 1343, the University is one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in Italy. It reflects a historical and cultural heritage of great value, which Pisa and Italy are very proud of.

But Pisa can offer even more: famous across the world for the Leaning Tower and its enchanting historical centre, this beautiful Tuscan city with a pleasant climate is located just a few kilometres from the sea and is in fact perfect for students. The city has a lively cultural side. This culminates in the “Giugno pisano” in which throughout the month of June there are important events and traditional festivals that attract many visitors and tourists.
