Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II is a significant square located near the railway station in Pisa. Its existence is a result of urban reorganization that took place in the late 19th century, leading to the demolition of the medieval walls and the San Gilio gate to create the square.

The square is surrounded by notable buildings and landmarks. Starting from the north and moving clockwise, you will find the Palazzo della Camera di Commercio, the neo-Gothic structures of the Post Office and the Province (both built in 1929, with the latter originally known as Littorio palace), and the backside of the church of Sant’Antonio Abate. These buildings add architectural diversity and historical significance to the square.

In the center of Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II stands a monument dedicated to Vittorio Emanuele II, a prominent figure in Italian history who played a crucial role in the country’s unification during the 19th century.

The square offers a rich blend of exotic and medieval flavours, providing a unique and diverse atmosphere for visitors to explore. The combination of historical landmarks and contemporary elements makes Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II a captivating space that reflects the city’s historical and cultural heritage. Whether you’re interested in admiring the architecture, learning about Italian history, or simply enjoying the vibrant atmosphere, this square has something to offer for everyone.
