When you mention the Italian city of Pisa, the first thing that comes to mind is its iconic leaning tower however it is not the only thing this city has to offer. It has a wealth of historic buildings and monuments with more than 20 churches, several palaces and multiple bridges over the river Arno. Hiring a car in Pisa is an ideal option as it is the easiest way to traverse the city with or without the family.
Popular sights in Pisa would obviously include the leaning tower of Pisa which is actually the bell tower of the city's cathedral, located in the heart of Cathedral Square (Piazza del Duomo). Pisa cathedral is entitled to St. Mary of the Assumption and it is a perfect example of Romanesque style of architecture. But apart from that there is the Knights Square (Piazza del Cavalieri) home of some of the cities palaces, churches and statues. While these are all worth a visit, why not make the trip easier by hiring a car and visiting these and other sights throughout the region.
By renting a car it opens up not only the city but what the Italian countryside has on show. To the West of the city lies the Mediterranean and the most beautiful white sand beaches and picturesque cliff top villages and towns. To the south on the SS1 or E80 is the formidable fortress and port city of Leghorn (Livorno).
