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
Hire a bicycle or scooter and tour the city in style or venture further afield to explore the surrounding countryside and coast (Toscana in Tour, 41 Via della Faggiola, toscanaintour.it).
Palazzo Blu hosts an exhibition of works by Amedeo Modigliani until 15 February 2015. Sculptures as well as paintings by the distinctive artist are on show and there are also works by his contemporaries including Picasso and Chagall (9 Lungarno Gambacorti, palazzoblu.it).
Just outside the city, the San Rossore Park covers a wide swathe of land along the coast. Hire a bicycle at the visitor centre or join one of the regular walking tours or wagon rides. There's a good restaurant, Poldino (poldino.com), a snack bar and horse-riding stables. parcosanrossore.org
The charming medieval hill town of San Miniato (a 40-minute drive from Pisa) is famed for its fragrant white truffle, which is celebrated with a festival during the last three weekends of November. Thousands of truffle fans come to try and buy the delectable, but costly, substance. san-miniato.com
