Pisa is located in Tuscany on the bank of the River Arno and coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea. The Mediterranean climate of Pisa makes the city temperate all year-round with temperatures rarely going above 30°C in the summer or dipping below 1° C at its very coldest.
The city has a Luminaria festival in June on San Ranieri Day, which is breathtaking because it involves over 10,000 candles being lit. There are two health-inducing spas located at Pisa. The thermal waters of the Casciana Terne have been used for rehabilitation, treatments, and relaxation since ancient times. The calciferous magnesia sulphate water of the San Guiliano Terne, located at the foot of the Mount San Guiliano is known for its health benefits. There are two baths in San Guiliano, the East Baths, which run around 38° C and the West Baths, which run around 40° C.
Florence and Lucca are both accessible by train. These are definitely worth a look while on holiday in Tuscany. Also nearby is the village of Calci. This medieval village sits in the Pisan Mountains and has a Museum of Natural History and Charterhouse, among other great sites seeped in history. Furthermore, while in Pisa, it is a nice idea to tour the University of Pisa, which is one of the oldest universities in Italy. The University has been hosting lectures since the 11th Century, though it officially was not founded until 1343. The Orto Botanico di Pisa is the oldest botanical garden in Europe, founded in 1544, and is also on the premises of University of Pisa.
