Borgo stretto is the most elegant street in Pisa. The most expensive shops and boutiques are here, under its arches. There are some nice bars too, and the best pastry shop ever: Salza. Try it out!!! During the Christmas period, a little square in Borgo Stretto hosts a Christmas market where you can buy Christmas decorations and Statues for the Nativity Scene ("Presepe"). A plaque above Caffè Settimelli signals that the house above was the house where Galileo Galilei was born. At the end of Via dei Mercanti, found in the quarter of San Francesco, there is an amazing spaghetteria, Le Bandierine.
