Pistoia never ceases to amaze. It's perfect for lovers of both art and traditional Tuscan cuisine. The city has a lot to offer: you can reach the main tourist attractions from the main piazza, and by casting an eye around you'll see there's even more to be revealed.

In this article, we recommend a walk through the center of Pistoia that will allow you to discover the places and history of some important historical figures. We will talk about Renaissance artists and street art, one of the best known Roman senators and a monument that we should all visit.

This itinerary is perfect for both walking and cycling.

If you are following your own itinerary by bicycle or if you have a car at your disposal, you could continue the itinerary by exploring the surroundings of Pistoia.

Stop outside Pistoia in the nearby town of Quarrata where a rainbow bench was inaugurated on the occasion of the World Day Against Homotransbiphobia 2021. It's a symbol of rejection against all discrimination and all violence against people due to their sexual orientation or their gender identity. The rainbow bench is located in Piazza Risorgimento.
