INFORMATION ABOUT THE CITIES
Pisa had its period of maximum splendor from the eleventh to the thirteenth century. The continuous internal struggles led to Florence’s submission in 1405. It was only in the 16th century that the city once again enjoyed a period of real well-being, thanks also to the Grand Dukes of Tuscany: in this period Galileo Galilei started his famous scientific research. Important cultural center both in the past and in the present, with the university founded in 1343 and the famous Scuola Normale Superiore.
Lucca is one of the main art cities of Italy, famous also outside the national borders especially for its intact city walls of the XV-XVII century, which describes a perimeter of 4.450 m around to the historical core of the city and makes it one of the 4 provincial capitals of the Italian province to have an intact city wall, together with Ferrara, Grosseto, Bergamo.
