The Airport of Pisa, known by the commercial name of Galileo Galilei, is the main airport in Tuscany and is located just a few minutes from the city centre. Renting a car at Pisa Airport is the best way to move freely and discover the many destinations that Tuscany offers.
Pisa International Airport has two terminals and has confirmed itself as one of the Italian airports with the highest growth in passenger traffic. The Airport, in great expansion, favours tourist traffic managed by low-cost carriers, cargo flights and will also aim to develop intercontinental flights. It is currently managed by Toscana Aeroporti S.p.A.
Why does Pisa attract tourists from all over the world? Pisa manages to establish its uniqueness thanks to the incomparable Piazza dei Miracoli, defined by many as a real open-air museum, and how can you blame them! It is a city that remains young and lively, thanks also to the famous universities that are based there, a city that is also very romantic where you can go for gentle strolls along the lungarni, a city where you can savour Tuscan culinary delights but also delicacies from different parts of the world… Choosing to visit Pisa means immersing yourself in a journey through history, culture and gastronomy.
A trip to Pisa is perfect for those who love art and social life; the city is overflowing with wonders such as the Leaning Tower, Piazza dei Cavalieri, the Lungarni and the Arsenali. Pisa is always the venue for important university conferences and cultural fairs, and events that recall tradition such as the feast of its patron saint, San Ranieri. On this occasion, the four historical quarters of the city challenge each other in the waters of the Arno in an exciting regatta, a legacy of the Pisa Maritime Republic tradition.
Pisa Airport is only 3 km away from the city centre, so renting a car is definitely the best and quickest way to get around in complete autonomy and visit the surroundings. It is useful to know that there is a limited traffic zone where access and circulation of vehicles is permitted at set times only for specific categories of users and particular types of transport.
