Pisa is famous for its leaning tower – which absolutely cannot be missed when you visit the city – but there is so much more to see and do when you visit Pisa. For foodies, history buffs and culture vultures, Pisa is the perfect Italian destination to explore. Book your cheap flights to Pisa (PSA) from Liverpool today, flying with Ryanair.
Why you should go
The stunning and historical city of Pisa is packed full of sights to see, places to eat and areas to explore; but of course, you should start with the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. The tower is actually the bell tower of the Cathedral Duomo, and both sit in the beautiful Piazza del Duomo. If you want to climb the leaning tower it is advisable to book online beforehand, as it can get very busy. If climbing the tower isn’t your thing, you can always admire it from the outside, and do the famous leaning pose for a photo!
The Cathedral itself is arguably one of the most ornate and awe-inspiring in all of Italy; you simply cannot visit Pisa without taking a trip inside Cathedral Duomo to see the stunning architecture and art with your own eyes – photos don’t do it justice. For the best view of the Cathedral, stand in the Baptistery and pop your phone or camera through the little cut out in the window.
Aside from the Leaning Tower and the Cathedral, there are countless restaurants, cafes and bars dotted all over Pisa – perfect for sampling some authentic Italian pizza, pasta or wine. If art is your thing, there are multiple significant art collections in Pisa; Foundation CariPisa’s collection is housed in the striking 14th century Palazzo Blu. The Museo Nazionale di San Matteo, meanwhile, is a stunning 13th century Benedictine convent which holds a collection of Tuscan school paintings, as well as 14th and 15th century Pisan sculptures.
When you should go
Pisa is a fantastic city to visit year-round; it is particularly busy during the summer between May and October, but this is when the city’s weather is at its best. Pack your sun cream because temperatures can reach up to 30°C! Winters are cold but pleasant, and the spring and autumn are often mild and quite warm. No matter when you go, Pisa has plenty on offer to see and do.
Where you should stay
If you fancy staying somewhere luxurious or prefer something cheap and cheerful, Pisa has something on offer for all styles and budgets. No matter if you choose a grand hotel, a boutique B&B or an affordable hostel, all types of accommodation in Pisa are within walking distance of the main attractions.
- Festival month – if you are visiting Pisa in June, be ready to celebrate! The city comes alive with many traditional events along the Arno River, from the Luminara to the Regatta of San Ranieri and the Battle of the Bridge.
- Day trips – Pisa is just a short bus journey away from stunning Italian locations such as Florence and San Gimignano, so if you’re visiting for a few days make sure you visit the nearby areas to get a real taste of Tuscany.
- Tuttomondo – located in the Sant’Antonio square, on one of the walls of the church with the same name, you can stand and admire Keith Haring’s stunning mural. It makes the perfect Instagram snap!
