Make a holiday rental villa or accommodation in Pisa, Italy your home away from home

Pisa is an extraordinary ancient city, inundated with outstanding historical monuments and surrounded by outstanding 12th Century defensive walls. However, this Italian city of Tuscany is mainly known for one thing; the implausible leaning Tower of Pisa.

Things to do on holiday in Pisa, Italy

Sightseeing is a huge draw, which keeps the Pisa holiday rentals in keen business. The leaning Tower of Pisa is not the only attraction, and nor is it the only leaning building in Pisa. The Baptistery and a number of bell towers (called the ‘other leaning towers of Pisa by locals) around the city are also on a clear slant, also due to the subsidence of the underlying soil. Walking tours of Pisa should take in the botanical gardens of Pisa, founded in 1540.

Taking a holiday rental villa in Pisa during June places you at the heart of the Festa di San Ranieri, which begins at the Ponte di Mezzo. Over 70,000 candles are placed around the city, which gives it a magical atmosphere and even more stunningly attractive.

The shopping in Pisa is much celebrated, with local goods including leather, jewellery, and wine being at the top of many visitors’ lists. As well as many little boutiques, Pisa has a rich tradition of flamboyant markets, where many of the cities products can be found at discounted prices. The hospitable welcome is truly evident in the cafes and restaurants of Pisa, which make excellent places to sit and recuperate after a hard day of sightseeing.

Aside from the rich sightseeing possibilities afforded by taking an apartment in Pisa, there are also a range of sport and leisure activities to enjoy. Golf, horse riding and parachuting have taken of in and around Pisa, and there are several magnificent hiking trails to choose from. The Parco Naturale di Migliarino is located just outside the city and offers some awe-inspiring scenery and a great place to relax and walk.

The pool was out of this world, the kids loved it as did we. Giuseppe was so so helpful, booked us a restaurant, gave us travel advice - where to park for the main cities. It is perfectly positioned for Lucca, Pisa and Florence, nothing was too far. It was like having a friend you could call on -thank you so much we had a lovely holiday. The local restaurants were lovely and locals friendly. It was a peaceful haven, you do need to drive but just gorgeous we had a lovely lovely time. Thanks Giuseppe and Raoul xxxx

                                                                                                      We absolutely loved Casa Colomba! The Tower has been beautifully restored and is reasonably well kitted out with everything you might need. The only downside for us was the lack of direct access to the garden area but this is because the property is protected and changes to the structure are prohibited. It's not really a problem though as you can go through the owner's residence and they are fabulously welcoming and helpful. The location is perfect...the village is lovely and un-touristy and the surrounding area is just beautiful - classic Tuscan countryside with medieval hilltop villages and towns a-plenty. There is so much to see and do in Tuscany and Casa Colomba makes a perfect base - we will be going back and there's no better recommendation than that 😊
