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 Graphics Museum to see Dolce Acqua, an exhibition dedicated to water. The hundred or so items on display range from contemporary art to video installations, photography and even a selection of Japanese etchings. Until 30 March (Palazzo Lanfranchi, 9 Lungarno Galilei, museodellagrafica.unipi.it).
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.
Just 6km from Pisa, San Giuliano Terme is a charming spa town in the hills. Come to enjoy fresh air, hillside walks and relaxing spas. Until 23 February you can also visit an exhibition of stage costumes worn by Verdi's heroines. fondazionecerratelli.it
