The Arno River is a beautiful Tuscan River that flows through Florence and then passes through Pisa before reaching the sea. It is very interesting that the Arno River bisects the city of Pisa, just as it does in Florence, dividing city into north and south once again. This is one of Pisa's most beautiful parts, and there's plenty to see along it. A good drive is guaranteed there in the early morning. The sunrise and sunset views are great!

Where to get a car in Pisa?
Certainly, rental car is the most convenient and affordable way to travel around Pisa with comfort. Forget about taxis or any public transport! You can drive anywhere at your own pace if you have a rental vehicle! 
Driving through the region is a great experience that you really shouldn’t pass up and while there are plenty of ways to travel along and things to see. Don’t know where to pick up the car in Pisa? So, if you want to save your time, money and nerves, do it right at the local airport.
