Cheap flights to Pisa
Pisa combines all the best elements of Italy; medieval architecture, beautiful river views and some unspoilt countryside just waiting to be explored. Pisa is home to the iconic Leaning Tower, one of the most recognisable buildings in the world. But this is a medieval town that offers so much more.
Come here for an exciting history-filled city break, stay a little longer and explore the beautiful rolling countryside of Tuscany, and finish off by exploring the priceless art gallery that is Florence, just 40 kilometres to the east. Stylish, culture-packed holidays don’t come any better than this
Join the locals in an afternoon "passeggiata" along the picturesque medieval street of Borgo Stretto. It has arcaded pavements with shops, cafes, market stalls and the attractive 11th-century San Michele in Borgo church.
Visit the Santo Stefano dei Cavalieri church in Piazza Cavalieri to see the extraordinary "Stoning of St Stephen" by Giorgio Vasari. The painting has recently been restored and it's on temporary display in the church, also designed by Vasari, together with an interactive display on the artist (8 Piazza dei Cavalieri).
The River Arno joins the sea at Bocca d'Arno, just outside Pisa. Follow the river along Viale D'Annunzio past a series of boatyards and some great eateries with verandas over the water such as Circolo Pescatori (164 Viale D'Annunzio, Pisa Marina, +50 36982), where the day's catch is served.
Take the No.10 bus for a day on the beach at Marina di Pisa (20 mins), or check out the beautiful nine-hole golf course in neighbouring Tirrenia. Designed by British architect Ken Cotton, it has been voted one of Italy's best. golftirrenia.it
