Marina

share
Marina was already urbanised more than two thousand years ago and its life has always been centred around the harbour.
It was abandoned for centuries during the Middle Ages, but in the the 13th century the Pisans set up their commercial activities in the area then called Lapola, between the waterfront and Castello, they built walls around it and the quarter has flourished ever since.
When the defensive walls which surrounded the Marina were pulled down in the 19th century, the quarter opened up to the rest of the city and the wide streets that mark its borders are still important features: via Roma, that runs along the port, with its arcades, cafes and shops; viale Regina Margherita, and its exclusive restaurants, leading up to Saint Remy Rampart; largo Carlo Felice, with its banks and shops, is still one of the city's main arteries.
However, to get the feel of the Marina, you must venture into the narrow streets, just behind via Roma, and hear the voices of its multi-ethnic population talking from window to window, the delicious smells coming from the kitchens of its many restaurants and just walk around.
