Discover Car Hire in Pisa
Pisa is located in the romantic region of Tuscany, Italy. This wonderful city is famous world-wide for its momentous Leaning Tower, which funnily enough is a famous architectural mistake. The Leaning Tower may be the number one attraction in Pisa, but there is much more to see and do. Pisa has centuries of history bursting through its architectural buildings, the marvellous Piazza dei Miracoli and its historical monuments.
Pisa is filled with century old traditions and has a great friendly and welcoming vibe. Travel in your hire car and explore the history and culture that dates back to 1000 BC. Take control of your own holiday and create a self-drive tour with your rental car which suits you. Cruise along in your DriveAway car hire and explore the romantic landscapes of Tuscany and take the chance to stop and enjoy the traditional food and drinks.
Of course when you're in Pisa the best place to start your sightseeing is at the controversial Leaning Tower of Pisa. It doesn't matter how many pictures you've seen of this attraction you will still be overwhelmed when you see the real deal. The Leaning Tower stands proudly at 60 metres tall and started leaning more than 800 years ago due to unsteady ground. At first you may judge the quirky poses from visitors, but it won't be long until you're found posing the same way for the camera. The Leaning Tower is one of four buildings that make up the Cathedral complex known as the Field of Miracles. The other buildings are The Church of Santa Maria Assunta, the Pisa Baptistery and the Camposanto Monumentale di Pisa.
Located just a couple minutes from the Leaning Tower you will come across the beautiful botanic garden which is the oldest botanic garden in Europe. Check out the two main museums in Pisa which are The Palazzo Blu and the Sinopie Museum. These museums display an amazing collection of paintings, sculptures and sketches. Another great museum is the National Museum of San Matteo which displays paintings and sculptures from the 12th to the 18th century.
Take a drive in your hire car to Lucca, a nearby town in Tuscany. This is a rare city that has its original medieval city walls which have been well preserved and stands strong today. The walls date back to the 16th century and hold together a colourful and unique town. A drive through the romantic Tuscan scenes is a must. A relaxing drive in your hire car is the best way to take in the beautiful landscapes and a chance to stop at the local stores and indulge in the traditional food.
On the 16th of June the lights are dimmed at sunset and over 10000 candles are lit in celebration of the Patron Saint Day. This breathtaking sight is amazing, there are many other activities around the streets and the night ends with big fireworks.
