Steeped in history, Pisa’s origins hark back to the Etruscans. The name 'Pisa' is believed to stem from an Etruscan word meaning 'mouth' - a perfect depiction of the city’s location at the Arno River's mouth. Pisa grew into an important maritime city, serving as a launchpad for Roman naval expeditions. It was also an ardent ally of the Byzantine Empire and had various conflicts over Mediterranean control with Genoa.

Pisa reached its zenith as a maritime nation in the 11th century, joining the ranks of Italy’s historical maritime republics. At the height of its power, Pisa established trading posts and colonies across several Levant cities during the Crusades. The city started to lose its influence due to conflicts with Genoa, Lucca, Florence and the papacy in the 13th century. Yet, the majestic aura of Pisa’s golden era continues to echo through its breathtaking monuments and exceptional architectural feats.

When to visit Pisa

For an affordable holiday, aim for November when Pisa’s hotel prices are at a yearly low. It's also worth noting that January usually offers the best deals on flights between London and Pisa. If the cost is not a deterrent, June and August present the highest hotel and flight rates respectively.

The ideal time to explore Pisa, however, considering weather and overall comfort, is between April and October. During these months, Pisa basks under warm, sunny skies, making it perfect for an outdoorsy vacation. Visit the city in its full glory, and appreciate this architectural treasure trove at its best.
