University of Pisa
Via Roma

The University of Pisa or Università di Pisa, is one of the oldest universities in Italy. It was formally founded on September 3, 1343 by an edict of Pope Clement VI, although there had been lectures on law in Pisa since the 11th century. The University has Europe's oldest academic botanical garden i.e. Orto botanico di Pisa, founded 1544.

On June 16th Pisa holds the Luminara festival, held for the patron saint's day San Ranieri. At sunset, all the lights along the Arno are dimmed and more than 10,000 candles are lit, which makes for some spectacular sights from the Ponte di Mezzo. Various activities are organized in the streets and the night ends with a big fireworks.

Another summer attraction is the Gioco del Ponte Game of Bridge, a historical manifestation held yearly on the last Sunday of June, in which the two sides of the city Tramontana and Mezzogiorno, geographically split by the Arno river participate in a historical procession, with 709 walk-ons, then challenge each other to a physical match in which their teams, each composed of 20 members, try to conquer the "Ponte di Mezzo" the main bridge in Pisa by pushing a trolley in order to force the rival team off the bridge.

For nightlife, there aren't many clubs or live music places in Pisa: the usual night in Pisa is having a dinner of pizza or a cheap kebab, having a beer in Borgo Stretto, or Piazza delle Vettovaglie or a pub in the surrounding areas, and having a walk in Piazza Garibaldi and Lungarni, where the "spallette" the low brick walls around the river are full of students.
