Best Time to Visit

Best Time to Visit

Tuscany, like the whole of Italy, generally has a temperate climate, with differences depending on individual geographical areas. As Pisa is situated just a few km from the Tyrrhenian Sea, you can enjoy both milder summers and winters. The best months to visit Pisa are April, May, June, September and October, with very pleasant sunny days. The summer months (July and August) can be very hot and that would make you vacation less enjoyable. June is the month when this city is especially worth a visit, as the three main traditional events - the Luminara, the Regata and the Gioco del Ponte - take place during that time.

Public Transport

Public Transport

Pisa is a small city, hence the best way to see it is on foot. The company which operates Pisa’s local transport system is CPT (Compagnia Pisana Trasporti) and its information office is in Piazza Sant'Antonio. - The new LAM service divides the bus network into two main lines (LAM red and LAM green, that stop at the most "popular" spots in the city centre) and guarantees departures every 10 minutes. You can purchase bus tickets, which you will then validate on board, at the Central Railway Station, in Via Cesare Battisti 53, or directly on board (at a higher price, though). - Local, interregional, Intercity and Eurostar trains stop at Pisa Central Railway Station, connecting Pisa to the main Tuscan and Italian destinations. Train tickets are sold at the ticket office, but for short tracks - up to 20 km - also at the newsagent’s. Self-service ticket machines can also be found in the station.
