Pisa is a city in Italy, located in the Tuscany region and the capital of the province of Pisa. The city lies on the Arno River and is especially famous for its leaning tower. In the Middle Ages, Pisa was one of the four maritime republics of Italy, together with Venice, Genoa and Amalfi. In the 12th and 13th centuries, Pisa experienced its heyday. In 1284, however, Pisa was defeated by Genoa, and in the 14th century silting the port made shipping and trade impossible.
