Why rent a car in Pisa?

Pisa is a great place to rent a car in. Having your own ride will let you not only explore the city itself, but also visit many other interesting places across the Tuscany Region and elsewhere in Italy.

Top ways to enter Pisa

  • Pisa Airport: Small, but busy and modern, Pisa is served by more than 30 airlines, even though some of them only have flights during summer.  
  • Florence Airport: About 80 minutes drive from Pisa, the airport serving Tuscany’s capital hosts flights to and from destinations in France, United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, and more than 15 other countries.
  • By rail: If you’re arriving in Pisa by train, you can conveniently pick up a rental car at Pisa Railway Station.

 

Useful city facts

  • The average temperature in August, the hottest month, is 23.4 °C (74.1 °F), but can get significantly hotter during the day. The average temperature in January is 6.8 °C (44.2 °F). Due to its location, the city gets more rain than most other Italian cities.
  • Some travelers are surprised to find out that Pisa is also very near the sea. Its near suburbs, Marina di Pisa and Tirrenia, are located right on the Ligurian Coast. 

Top destinations and activities

  • The leaning tower. By far the most famous of Pisa’s landmarks, Torre Pendente is one of the symbols of whole Italy. It is possible to climb to its top, but you’ll have to buy a ticket and the waiting times can be anywhere between 1 to 3 hours.
  • Pisa Cathedral. Not only a religious center and a beautiful building, the Pisa Cathedral hosts many famous paintings, sculptures, and mosaics by artists such as Giambologna, Della Robia, Giovanni Pisani, and others.
  • Baptistry of St. John (Battistero di San Giovanni). This large Romanesque dome is beloved by tourists because of the great views of the leaning tower that you can get from its top, but the building itself with its mixed architectural style is very much worth a visit as well.

Traffic and parking tips

  • The speed limit in cities is 50 km/h, although in certain areas the speed limit may be reduced to 30 km/h. 
  • Main highways are limited to 130 km/h, non-major highways to 110 km/h, and local roads to 90 km/h. During the rain the limits are respectively lowered to 110 km/h, 100 km/h, and 80 km/h. The general speed limit is lowered to 50 km/h during heavy fog or other cases of bad visibility.
  • The insurance and car documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
  • If you’re the driver, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
  • The legal alcohol limit is 0.05% for experienced drivers and 0.00% for novice drivers. Being over the allowed limit can result in hefty fines and even imprisonment. 
  • The emergency number, like elsewhere in the EU, is 112.

Toll roads

There are numerous toll roads in Italy. The exact fee depends on the route of your choice and the type of a vehicle. See the official Italian toll road website for more information. Use the website’s toll road calculator to find out exactly how much you’ll have to pay for using the toll roads on your planned route.  

Ideas for a day-trip

  • Casciana Terme. This small town about 40 minute drive southeast of Pisa is famous for its thermal spas. Known to locals for centuries, the thermal waters are now often used in modern therapies. Even if you’re in great health, enjoying the spas makes for a fun and relaxing day. A similar, but an even closer travel destination is San Giuliano Terme.
  • Florence. Just 86 km (53 mi) east of Pisa, the most important city of Italian Renaissance is full of stunning buildings, world-class museums, and history on every step of the way. The city’s culinary tradition shouldn’t be overlooked, either.
  • Casentinesi National Forest Park. This nature area is about 2 and half hour’s drive east of Pisa, but if the weather is good, it more than justifies the rather long way thanks to its beautiful cliffs, hills, and lakes.

Most popular rental types and cars

The most popular rental car in Italy is the Fiat Panda, although travelers also tend to pick the Ford Fiesta and the Fiat 500 a lot. The most popular car type is an economy, followed by compact and mini.

Further destinations

  • Rome. About four hours drive south of Pisa, the Eternal City is a history, arts, culture, and culinary destination like no other. If you ever get overwhelmed by all it has to offer, the beaches just west of the city offer perfect relaxation.
  • Southern Italy. Start by exploring beautiful Naples, but do travel even farther south where regions of Apulia, Basilicata, and Calabria offer tradition, stunning nature, and endless hospitality.
  • Bologna and Venice. Just northeast of Tuscany, these two famous cities offer just as much culture as Pisa and Florence, but have their own unique atmosphere and character. Bologna can be reached in about two hours from Pisa and Venice in about three and a half.

Go visit Lucca. Pisa is an ideal location for anyone wanting to explore the Tuscany region. Also, it is a small airport which makes navigating much easier, especially if one has jet lag.

They offer a free shuttle from the airport to the car rental area, but it is just as convenient to walk the 200 yards or so to the rental offices from the airport provided you don’t have too much luggage. The sidewalks are clearly marked pointing out the way once you exit the Pisa airport.

Loved Pisa but it was very small. Probably only worth a day there. Also went to Siena, which was fabulous and Cortona, which was much smaller but lovely. Tuscany is a breathtaking part of the world and would highly recommend driving around it.

Tuscany is a beautiful area of Italy. Expensive, but worth it. The driving is considerably me tolerable than in three south of Italy or the islands. A must visit is Cenquetera via Le Spezzia. Also wine tasting at Agrisole in San Miniato. Siena is stunning. Thank you Tuscany.
