Pistoia is a Tuscan city very close to our vacation homes, and it is a real gem mistakenly underestimated by many tourists.

If you want to make a day trip of it, here is what you absolutely cannot miss:

  • The Cathedral of San Zeno, with the silver altar inside that a young Filippo Brunelleschi also worked on
  • The Baptistery of San Giovanni in corte
  • The Pieve di Sant'Andrea, with the pulpit made by Giovanni Pisano
  • The Dome of Basilica of the Madonna dell'Umiltà
  • The Tower of Catilina, whose name derives from the legend that the Roman general's tomb is on the very street where the tower is located.
