Traffic Information

Traffic Information

Our car hire at Pisa Airport desk is located in the Piazzale Mario Cobianchi parking area. This is a short walk from the terminal or alternatively a shuttle service departs every fifteen minutes from outside the arrivals hall. The airport is just under 4 miles from the city centre.

Although a car rental in Pisa is invaluable for exploring the Tuscan countryside be very careful about driving in the historic centre of the city. Only residents or hotel guests with permits are allowed to drive in its Limited Traffic Zone. This is strictly enforced by cameras and expensive fines that quickly mount up. Our branch staff or your hotel will be able to advise you on this.

White lines on kerbs indicate free parking while blue lines mean payment at a nearby meter. Public parking is available on the outskirts of the historic centre.

Although you are unable to explore the historic heart of the city in your rental car you can enjoy a drive along the River Arno and across one of the bridges to visit sights such as La Citadella fort and the University Botanical Gardens. Most of the city's must-see attractions, however, are clustered together in the narrow streets of its centre. The Torre Pendente or Leaning Tower has been at an angle since shortly after it was constructed on marshy land in the 12th-century. Time slot tickets for this very busy attraction have to be bought in advance but it is well worth the effort. From the top look out for the other two leaning towers in Pisa, the Bell Towers of San Nicola and San Michele of Scalzi Churches. Pisa Cathedral and Baptistry are fine examples of Italian Romanesque architecture while the Museo delle Sinopie is a treasure trove of art. Then take a stroll to soak up the local atmosphere before enjoying some people watching and coffee in the charming little squares.

Alongside the cluster of historic buildings in the Piazza del Duomo or Cathedral Square is the Monumental Cemetery. Founded in the 13th-century and built in an ornate Gothic style the cemetery was designed to house the Roman sarcophagi that were dotted around the city. Legend states that the cemetery was built over a layer of earth brought back from the Holy Land after a 12th-century crusade. Pisan notables, including the Medicis, also found their final resting place in this city of the dead. Originally its interior walls were decorated with frescoes depicting Old Testament stories but unfortunately many were bomb damaged during the Second World War. A visit to the cemetery makes a more tranquil alternative to the crowded areas around the Tower and Cathedral.

Cut above the rest of the car rental companies at Pisa Airport. Literally have their own stylish pavilion apart from the noisy hall where the others are.
