Very nice and important historical religious place
Aug 2019 • Family
Basilica romanics di San Piero a Grado is a church located near Pisa, in the place, where according to the legend, St. Peter landed in Italy, so it is a very important place for Christians. Nowadays, there is not coast here, because in the last twenty centuries, the coast go to Marina di Pisa. The building is a big Roman church built in the 11-12th Centuries in the old port of Pisa. If you enter, really it is impressive. Very interesting place for history-lovers.

Beautiful Roman basilica outside of Pisa

You will really need a car to get there. I think there are city buses going to San Piero a Grado, Well worth the excursion.

Very nice Basilica

The Basilica is worth the visit. It is located in San Piero a Grado, about 4.3 miles (7 km) west to the center of Pisa. There are also a few small restaurants located in the area.

in the shadow of the tower

This is okay as churches go. Set in the shadow of the tower it is difficult for this to be anything but a sideshow.

Very Historic

I would not go out of my way to see this but the area around Marinadi Pisa is very scenic and not on the beaten path. There has been excavation and makes a claim to be the place where Peter first stepped ashore in Italy.

Overwhelming opulence
Aug 2018 • Family
There’s is so much to see here, if you don’t have a small child in tow! The colours are so bright and the detail is unreal for the time period it was created in.

A must-to-see place for all admirers of medieval art
Aug 2018 • Couples
This is a real gem that you cannot miss to visit. Even after all that we managed to see in Florence, Lucca and Pisa this church impresses you much as it is a fine and very well preserved example of authentic Romanesque architecture. It breathes with history, also given the fact that, according to the legend, the church was built on the place where apostle Peter supposedly entered Pisa port (that was located here at this time) on his way from Antiochia. Better come here in the morning, when there are no people here, weather is not hot and the sun is low, allowing you to make beautiful detailed photographs of the church facade and stonework. If you are familiar with the history of Medieval Art and architecture this is the absolutely necessary place to visit. Only beware, that information that states that the church opens 8 a.m. is not correct, on our visit there 11th August 2018 the open time was 9 a.m. The journey can be combined with journey to Pisa if you are inhabiting the coastal area using the regular 90-minutes bus ticket (you exist the bus on the stop near the church, see the church and enter the following bus, your ticket still valid).
