Best time to visit Pisa
Peak season runs from June to September when the hot, summer days attract hordes of tourists to this iconic city. You’ll need to pack in sunglasses and a hat for walking around the city during July and August, which see temperatures peaking at 30°C. The best part about visiting Pisa during winter (October-March) is the cheap accommodation and ticket prices, and fewer queues.
