I have just received a newsletter sent by the tourist council of Pisa and another one by the Mayor’s office and I am amazed at the amount and quality of the events being organized in Pisa this fall.
Here are some of the things that caught my attention the most!
- From October 7 to May 31, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 11am a low cost tour of the monuments of Piazza dei Miracoli other than the Leaning Tower (8 euros). The visit includes admission to the Cathedral and the Baptistery. From October 6 to December 15, every Thursday, visitors to the Museum of San Matteo (Piazza San Matteo in Soarta, Pisa)
will have the opportunity to join in a free tour inclusive of a visit to Simone Martini’s Polyptych.
- From October 8 to December 31, every Saturday at 10.30 am a tour of the city dedicated to the places where Galileo Galilei lived. More on the Galilean Tour.
- From October 9 to February 12, every second Sunday, at 6pm, a guided tour of Palazzo Blu and the Permanent Art Collection.
- Until November 20, From Corot to Renoir, an exhibit at Museo della Grafica which offers a glimpse of the great 19th-century French engraving season between Romanticism and Impressionism, with papers from both collection Timpanaro and from a private collection.
- Until the end of June 2012, every second Sunday of each month, an organ concert is held in the Church of Santo Stefano dei Cavalieri (admission is free).
- From October 15 to January 29, Palazzo Blu will host an extraordinary exhibition of masterpieces by Pablo Picasso.
Soon will be available a booklet called P.I.S.A. (Percorsi – Itinerari – Sapori – Arte) with all the events of the fall and the winter in Pisa. The website related to this initiative is already online: www.pisacittapalcoscenico.it
