DESTINATIONS italy pisa Do & See Lungarnos


Lungarnos are quays that run along a river. The Lugarnos of Pisa, with their beautiful palaces and romantic bridges over them, have been the heart and soul of the city for centuries. Today, it is possible to walk along them to admire river Arno and its surroundings and, especially if the weather is good, to stop and eat an ice cream or get a drink in one of the several cafes along them.

Do & See

The boat service in Pisa will let you enjoy the architectural scenery of the Lungarni, or the natural beauty of the nearby San Rossore Natural Park, in which several important races and dressage competitions take place. Pisa celebrates traditional events such as the fascinating Luminara (a candlelight festival), the historical Regata (a boat race on the Arno river) and the Gioco del Ponte (an ancient contest on the Ponte di Mezzo). The three of them take place every year in June. An alternative could be a festival of international sacred music called Anima Mundi. It takes place between September and October in the Cathedral and Monumental Cemetery.
