City Breaks to Pisa
Bargain city breaks to Pisa have far more than just its famous Tower to offer. If you’re leaning towards European city breaks in Pisa, we at Coop Travel have the best deals around.
Cheap Pisa city breaks invariably take you to its most famous monument. There’s no truth in the rumour that the Italians are planning to have the Leaning Tower underpinned, but once you’ve taken the eponymous photograph, take time to explore the vibrant modern heart of the city as well.
Last minute Pisa city breaks are ideal for those looking for alternative European city breaks to Rome. A compact Tuscan city with a wealth of Mediaeval Renaissance architectural gems, Pisa offers everything you need for cultural weekend breaks – with the Italian sunshine a definite plus.
Pisa city breaks are booked with one thing in mind: the mediaeval religious masterpieces of the Piazza del Duomo, or Campo dei Miracoli (Place of Miracles). This expansive walled enclave is today a UNESCO World Heritage site, housing the city’s four most famous religious monuments: the Duomo Cathedral; the Baptistry; the Camposanto cemetery, and the famous leaning Campanile, or bell tower. Last minute Pisa city breaks of a week or more couldn’t do service to these magnificent monuments, but weekend breaks with a tour guide will certainly help.
The home of Galileo, cheap Pisa city breaks take you down narrow mediaeval streets rich in Moorish, Gothic and Romanesque architecture. A short walk takes you to the Piazza dei Cavalieri (Knights Square) and magnificent Palazzo della Carovanci, with numerous other beautiful arcades, stately palaces, enchanting churches and shady piazzas to discover. All breaks should include at least one of the art museums, while the stately mansions and palaces lining the Arno River make for a lovely walk.
We at Coop Travel have cheap Pisa city breaks from lively Piazza Garibaldi to elegant Borgo Stretto. In both places you will find an abundance of cheap shops and restaurants. The best time to book Pisa package city breaks is spring or autumn, as summer gets pretty hot.
