Types of holiday rentals in Pisa
On Holidu we offer you the possibility of finding the best offers for renting tourist rentals between private individuals. For you to find the ideal accommodation for your holidays, adapted to your needs and at the price you can pay. Most of the rentals are located in the centre of Pisa, in tall, slender buildings, which is a consequence of the marshy origin of the land on which they were built. That's why they all have a unique and different charm. But you will also find rentals in the vicinity, in places like San Giuliano Terme and Cascina, or a few metres from the beach, in the areas of Calabrone and Tirrenia. The most common are those with capacity for 3 and 4 people, but the truth is that you can also find some for 2 people if you travel as a couple or for more if you travel with a group of friends. Completely equipped and with a very elegant and stately decoration. Almost all of them have their own car park, so they are perfect if you arrive in the city by car or if you plan to rent one for excursions in the region. Also, if you're thinking of travelling with your dog, don't worry, as most rentals in Pisa allow pets.Why book a letting in Pisa?
Pisa is considered the capital of the province of Toscana located in the east of the country. The origins of the city are unknown, but most of its monuments, such as the cathedral and the Piazza dei Miracoli, date back to the 11th and 12th centuries, which has managed to give it a frankly interesting medieval appearance as a whole. In any case, it is bordered to the south by the spectacular Florence, as well as to the north and east by Genoa and Bologna, respectively. Another city with which it shares the Tuscany region is Siena, which is also worth a visit and has magnificent holiday rentals. Undoubtedly, the proximity of all these localities encourages many tourists to make tours of Tuscany and visit them as part of their journey. Therefore, if you come by car to the city and you are going to stay several days, especially if you are going to rent a letting in the centre of Pisa, we recommend that you choose one with a garage so that you don't have to waste time looking for a place to park it and that nothing spoils your holidays.

Despite its small size, Pisa is one of the most visited cities in Italy. Undoubtedly, its medieval atmosphere, its large marble structures and, above all, the great attraction of its spectacular Tower of Pisa, are some of the reasons that explain this fact. For this reason, millions of tourists every year look for rentals in any of the four historic neighbourhoods that compose it, that is to say, in Ponte, the oldest and located to the west, in Mezzo, to the northeast, in Fuoriporta, to the east and in Kinzica, to the south. According to the opinions of other travellers these are the best areas to book a letting in Pisa because of their proximity to the monumental attractions and because they are the most lively. However, if the centre's accommodation is beyond your budget, in the suburbs you will find cheap rentals, specifically in the beach area, such as Tirrenia. A very quiet area with many green areas and close to the beach.
Types of travellers and activities
Without a doubt, the Tower of Pisa is the monument that attracts the greatest number of visitors each year. Built to be the bell tower of the Cathedral of Pisa, another of the essential constructions of the city, is located in the Plaza del Duomo and work began in 1173. Its inclination is mainly due to the lack of stability of the land on which it is built, although it is true that after 20 years of work between the end of the twentieth century and the beginning of the twenty-first century, it has managed to stabilise.Pisa for wine lovers

Any destination in Tuscany, such as Siena, Florence or Bologna are ideal for booking a letting or a cottage and enjoying a weekend getaway as a couple. But the truth is that Pisa has one of the best connected airports and a privileged location to visit the towns and cities of the region. In addition, the city's own beauty, with its historic buildings, the river Arno and its wonderful squares is perfect for it. And after a day of cultural visits, nothing better than dining by candlelight in one of the many restaurants in the historic centre. If you decide to rent a letting in Pisa for a romantic getaway, we also recommend that you choose it with a Jacuzzi, so you can enjoy moments full of passion.
