This event is totally mad and totally beautiful. A crowd of 100,000 was expected for the 2017 event and it seemed like it! Every building lining the river Arno which goes through Pisa erects elaborate frames of 'holders' into which are placed small, lit candle...More

Pisa is a beautiful little town with the river running through it. Seeing it lit up with candles so meticulously was a great experience. The festivity, colors and lights highlighting the classic architecture, spectacular fireworks coordinated with music and the reflection on water is priceless.

What a festivity! It is music, history, fireworks, and candles all along the river or as it is called Lungarno. The beautiful old buildings that face the Arno river, are all illuminated with candles. The day commences by stopping by to your favorite restaurant before...More

I am living and working in Pisa for three months, but only fell in love with the city a fortnight after arriving when I saw it in full glow at the Luminara. The city gets very crowded, but it is worth it for the firework...More
