Car Hire in Pisa: A City Undiscovered

The city is set on the Arno River and still retains certain splendour from its days as a commercial centre.  The river is spanned by an array of charming bridges, each seeming more brilliant and romantic than the last.  The University dates back to the 12th Century, while the city itself has been around even longer, playing an important maritime role in the Roman Empire.  In fact, Ancient Roman writers refer to Pisa as an “old city”.  Truly there is much to see, hear, feel and do in Pisa.

This trip can be done in eight days; spending two days at each stop, stretch it to two weeks and linger at your favourite spots, or take a detour and get lost finding a hidden gem.  Starting in Pisa, drive your Pisa Airport car rentals towards Florence.  Stretch your legs through these streets that gave birth to the Renaissance.  Visit one of the city’s many tourist spots, such as the Piazza della Signoria, or explore the alleys and the Arno riverside (yes, the same one you crossed in Pisa!)  Art lovers in particular with enjoy the Uffizi, containing the world’s finest collection of Renaissance art.

On to Chianti, a famous wine region of Tuscany, and sample the food and wine at Greve, a charming town atop a small hill in the middle of vineyards lain across rolling valleys.  Climb to the hilltop hamlet of Montefioralle, the ancestral home of Amerigo Vespucci, the very first explorer to land in America and after whom the continent is named.  Onwards to the enchanting medieval city of Siena; its historic town centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

Arrive to Italy’s capital, the “open air museum” of Rome.  The city is simply littered with monuments to the Ancient Roman civilisation.  Finally arrive to Naples on the coast, founded by the Greeks in the 6th Century B.C.  Like Siena, the old town centre of Naples has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Naples boasts a fantastic harbour.  Swap your car keys for sea legs and take a scenic boat cruise.  Take a day trip to nearby Amalfi to reward yourself for a trip well driven with a day on the beach.
