A quintessential medieval Italian city, Pistoia is the capital of the province of Pistoia in the region of Tuscany and is a popular tourist destination.

The walls originally had four gates, Porta al Borgo, Porta San Marco, Porta Carratica and Porta Lucchese, but all were demolished in the early 20th century.

The centre of the old city is the Piazza del Duomo where the Cathedral and other charming medieval buildings line the square.

The main sights to visit in this city are:
Cattedrale di San Zeno, built in the 5th century but burned down and rebuilt in the early 12th century. It was fully and sympathetically restored in the latter half of the 20th century.
