On your next trip to the city of the leaning tower make sure to consider employing our Pisa car hire services as your main means of transportation. The city is indeed famous for its Leaning Tower but there are many other attractions and sights that the city offers, both architectural and artistic.
The city is served by the Pisa Airport which is actually the main airport for the Tuscany region so numerous companies have flights touching down here. It is located rather close to the city center which you can easily reach either by bus or via taxis but a better option would be to employ our Pisa car rental services and have a car of your choice ready and waiting for you at the airport at an hour you specify.
As mentioned earlier the city of Pisa offers so much more than just the Leaning Tower, for instance the Cathedral of Pisa – Duomo di Pisa – is a truly remarkable building containing artwork from Della Robbia, Giambologna as well as other major artists of the region.
The Battistero is also a large Romanesque-style building featuring many sculptured decorations coupled with an Arabic-style pavement and a pulpit built by Nicola Pisano. The building has a particular type of acoustics due to its octagon-shape and this is something that will be demonstrated by the guard who will shout out a few sounds in order for the visiting group to hear the echo.
A related attraction, if you can call it that but it is a bit weird is the Campo Santo Monumentale or the cemetery. This cemetery building features a lot of interesting art as well as a large number of ancient Roman sarcophagi alongside some wonderful medieval frescoes.
There’s one attraction that is oftentimes skipped by most visitors and that is the Museo delle Sinopie. This came to be when after the Second World War the surviving murals from the Campo Santo were taken down in order to preserve them. This meant that the sketched underneath were uncovered and these were also moved to this museum.
These are of course only a few of the many things that you can see and do while in the city of Pisa so make sure to consider our Pisa car hire services in order to see as much of the city as possible.
