This year, autumn is unusually mild: why not take advantage of the climate with a day trip to Pisa. Pisa is a very pretty town in Tuscany, with some good food as well as numerous cultural events. Until February 2014 it will be possible to visit the Andy Warhol exhibition at The Palazzo Blu, presenting about 150 works that trace the life and works of the artist, presented in collaboration with the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, and with the support of other collections from different museums in Europe and the United States. However, the beauty of Pisa doesn’t end here: in addition to the classic artworks, churches and museums, such as the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Piazza dei Miracoli, which is part of UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Duomo, Pisa is the hometown of many interesting exhibitions. For example, those of you who had a day trip to Pisa in the first week of November, probably had the chance to attend “Navigarte 2013,” with various dance performances and art workshops. Those travelling with children also couldn’t miss the exhibition and the workshops on medieval art, to discover the techniques and materials used in the past.
And for the lovers of technology, the Faculty of Engineering opened the exhibition “From the treatise to the e-book”, displaying texts from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century on specializations in engineering, as well as modern ones about electrical, nuclear, biomedical engineering, and energy.
In addition, between the cultural visits on your day trip to Pisa you could take advantage of the excellent local cuisine, maybe at the Ostellino, close to Piazza dei Miracoli, with its sandwiches with bacon, cheese and tomatoes, perhaps accompanied by a glass of Chianti!
If the weather allows, you can also have a dinner on the terrace of Osteria San Paolo, with its seafood dishes such as lobster noodles and fried fish or the most classic cut of meat, named “tagliata”. But Pisa is not only about enjoying the Tuscan cuisine; for example, you could eat at the pub Gusto Giusto, where you can taste the sandwich sausage and broccoli or meatloaf, and maybe end the lunch with a dessert, like the coccoro (a truffle of Nutella and coconut) or a tiramisu.
