La Regata delle Antiche Repubbliche Marinare
Pisa, Amalfi, Genoa and Venice take it in turn to host this historic boat race. Vivid crafts hailing to the 12th century compete over 2,000m, while parades and festivities are also laid on in the city.
La Luminara di San Ranieri
The streets along the Arno River are lined with candles to honour the patron saint of Pisa, San Ranieri. Candles also float on the river, as streetlights are turned off and parties and fireworks light up the city.
La Regata di San Ranieri
Saint Ranieri is honoured again at this traditional regatta, as the four historical quarters of Pisa compete against each other, with Santa Maria in blue, San Francesco in yellow, Sant’Antonino in green and San Martino in red.
Gioco del Ponte
This celebration dates back to 1568 and sees teams from the north and south banks battle against each other on the last Sunday in June. Challenges include the pushing of a seven-tonne carriage across the old Roman bridge, Ponte di Mezzo.
A number of atmospheric venues across Pisa play host to this festival of sacred music, with a variety of incredible performances that includes a recital in Miracle Square.
