Compare the best Pisa car hire

Although Pisa might be most famous for its Leaning Tower, there is an array of attractions to explore in this majestic city. Pisa is the gateway to Tuscany and car hire in Pisa provides you with the perfect opportunity to discover the whole of this beautiful area on Italy's eastern coast.

Why go?

With flights from many UK airports, Pisa has become an arrival point for many hiring a car in Tuscany...

Whilst the ancient winding streets of Pisa are more suitable for walking than driving, car hire will allow you to get away from the city and discover the rest of Tuscany. Arranging car hire from Pisa Airport (PSA) means that you can easily visit the city's famous sites such as the Leaning Tower in the Piazza dei Miracoli, also known as the Field of Miracles. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a huge draw for tourists around the world and it is worth spending plenty of time exploring the surrounding area.

The Piazza is also home to the splendid Duomo di Pisa cathedral, which contains artwork by renowned artists such as Giambologna and Della Robbia amongst many other major works. Also in the Piazza is the Baptistry, or Battistero, which will not only give you a fantastic view of the tower for taking photos, but is also home to some stunning architecture and sculptures. In the Battistero you can experience for yourself the musical echo-effect that the dome produces.

Where to explore?

While there are many amazing sites to see in Pisa, car hire also gives you easy access to the Renaissance art and history of Tuscany...

Start by visiting one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Florence. You can see the famous Duomo di Firenze, the cathedral that is the symbol of the city and the epitome of Renaissance engineering.

You can also get out and visit Siena with its famous square as well as visiting the towns of Palio, Arezzo Fiesole, San Gimignano and Livorno or go to the coast and explore Pistoia.
