“An interesting 2nd leaning tower of Pisa away from the crowds”

Chiesa di San Michele Degli Scalzi
Reviewed 24 March 2018

My wife & I (with the help of directions given by hotel) walked through a pleasant leafy residential part of south east Pisa, next to the River Arno, before reaching this gem of an architectural irregularity. This church tower is not nearly as high as the more famous Cathedral bell tower but still very impressive. We didn't have the opportunity to go inside but seeing the tower from the outside was most worthwhile.

Sadly it was shut and we could not see the interior but not only was the exterior beautiful, the leaning tower was fun to see! This is the lesser known leaning tower of Pisa. Quite a hike to get there but the walk there was all along the River Arno and most pleasant.

A lovely little church on the other side of the Arno in a quite part of Pisa. This one has a bell tower that leans just like its famous cousin in the tourist part of town.

Charming. . A bit far off the center but very nice walk along the river.. ideally by bike. If you have more days here this is a good site.

Inside has a 13th C. Crucifix.

We learned that the word Scalzi refers to the barefoot Monks that were associated with the church.
