5 Reasons to make Pisa your base during your Tuscan ventures
Pisa is home to beautiful, mediaeval and Romanesque architecture and myriads of idyllic places of historical and cultural interest. Plus, an abundance of natural sights, parks, and nature reserves. Besides finding some of the most luxury villas in Pisa, the charming town is also worth every second of your time and every bit of your energy for the following reasons:
You combine tranquillity with sightseeing
The hand-picked elegant villas in our collection are all located in the picturesque suburbs of Pisa or the iconic countryside surrounding it. This is because we wish them to be close to Pisa, yet not in the midst of all the bustle and noise of the busy city. It is critical for our customers’ best experiences overall to be provided with a comfy and cosy place that promotes and encourages utmost relaxation and composure to return to after a long and exciting day out and about this magnificent part of Tuscany. That way, guests can enjoy sightseeing historical monuments, visiting local attractions, and driving through the scenic Tuscan countryside and its heart-stopping, lush landscapes.Speaking of jaw-dropping lands, Lucca’s rolling valleys, vineyards, olive groves, and cypress forests are also within easy reach from Pisa and your chic mansion. Yet another reason why Pisa is a fantastic Tuscany “headquarter” for any type of venture!
The food scene is absolutely palate-pleasing
The Tuscan countryside pampers visitors and locals alike with hearty stews, dishes where white truffles are the guest of honour, and staples like artichoke, cod, cuttlefish, and squid-inspired flavours. Add to that the quintessential Pisa cecina, a chickpea flour-created pizza-like flatbread, as well as carb courses starring risotto, and soups with recipes originating from the Apennine Mountains, and you start to gather the ingredients for a mind-blowing culinary experience.And, if you are willing to take this gastronomic venture just a but further off Pisa, then we suggest visiting a bakery at either Siena or Lucca (could be both) for a slice of the famous buccellato bread that you can enjoy while sipping your morning espresso at the city’s historic square! Of course, no meal in Tuscany is 100% complete without a glass of Pinot Bianco, Sauvignon, or Semillon (some of the most popular white DOC wines in the Monte Carlo region, close to Lucca)!
It’s perfect for families
There is absolutely nothing a family may need that Pisa does not provide in profound abundance. Besides the infamous Leaning Tower of Pisa, you can stroll along Piazza dei Miracoli (where the tower is located) and visit the enchanting Duomo di Pisa (the Cathedral), the Cemetery, and the Baptistery – all with pleasant surprises for the little ones. There are also playgrounds (you can try the one at the Parco Don Bosco that also features a bike path), along with beautiful places to have a picnic, such as the Giardino Scotto Park with the imposing 15th-century fortress and fortified citadel, and also Piazza dei Cavalieri (just 10 minutes on foot from the Leaning Tower).There is even a museum with a special armour collection that kids find fascinating (namely the National Museum of the Royal Palace), and several different family-oriented tours (for instance self-guided bike tours). And, let’s not forget the picturesque Marina di Pisa that is dreamy for seaside walks and family-friendly activities like swimming (the water is crystalline and shallow) and water sports. Along the mouth of the River Arno, you will also find some of the best ice-cream shops, pizzerias, and souvenir stores.On a warm, summer day, you may also claim your fair share or family fun at the Piccolo Mondo Amusement Park, and an exciting waterpark full of lounge areas, pools, slides (including the highest Tuscan slide), inflatable games, go-karts, and even a cinema!
Its nightlife is iconic
Despite not being one of the most animated European cities (when it comes to its night scene), the fact that Pisa is a university town means that it is, indeed, more than able to create some nice buzz, especially at venues close to the university. Expect a wide range of bars, pubs, and bars inviting you to dance, listen to live music, drink delicious cocktails, and raise the wow factor related to Pisa after sunset.Some of the most quintessential regions for vibrant nighttime activities is Via Lungarno, which is home to several popular bars and entertainment venues in Pisa offering a good assortment of drinks, snacks, and a fine selection of music. Among the numerous options, you may even find places hosting thematic music and dance nights, as well as clubs pampering with live concerts and opera representations!As for the summer months, the action seems to shift from downtown Pisa towards Marina di Pisa and other coastline resorts, such as Viareggio and Tirrenia – all giving every split second of the time spent there worth it a hundred-fold.
It is an utterly romantic destination
Simply wandering through the cobbled streets of the historic centre and through the scenic squares sends out an unbelievably romantic vibe to the atmosphere. Going past Romanesque-architecture buildings with spellbinding facades and streets lined with charming cafes and restaurants is a unique experience on its own, especially around sunset. Speaking of which, the Square of the Miracles (Piazza dei Miracoli) is truly where miracles can happen as the sun puts on a sense-caressing light show for your eyes only just before it slips behind the horizon. Surrounded by adorable architecture, you may also indulge in a romantic dinner for two with views of the breathtaking Arno River. Or join a private Pisa and Florence shore excursion from Livorno, or even play a real-world adventure at the romantic-themed open-air escape games full of challenges, fun, romantic stories of the present and the past, and picturesque places!
