An afternoon in Pisa, Italy

If you are travelling to Tuscany chances are you will arrive and leave from Pisa airport (this is where most EasyJet and Ryanair flights land). It was the case for us and as our flight was in the evening we decided to spend our last afternoon in Tuscany, in Pisa.

People may not think of Pisa when thinking of Tuscany but it is one of the biggest cities in the region, and with its very famous sights it does worth stopping there for a few hours.

It is good to note that parking in Pisa can be a little bit of a nightmare so plan a good 30 minutes just in case it takes some time to find a spot to park.

Pisa city centre is quite condensed and everything is walking distance. Start your visit with, of course, the very famous Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Take a few cliche pictures, then take pictures of the people taking some cheesy pictures!

Once you filled up your SD card with pictures of your blurry hand and the tower, head toward the Cattedrale di Pisa and the Piazza del Duomo. The entire area is just stunning and the architectural details of the buildings worth taking a moment to appreciate.

We didn’t have time for it, as our flight was that night, but if you have an extra hour you can purchase some tickets to visit the local museum, the Cathedral and climb the Tower.

After wandering around the Tower area we headed to the city centre. It seems most tourists don’t adventure much beyond the main sights so Pisa centre is actually fairly quiet and very charming.

We grabbed one last gelato and then headed to the airport, our heads full of Tuscanian dreams, our bellies full of Italian food.
