Getting to Tuscany

by Carl Scott, February 6, 2019

Staying in our Holiday Cottage in Tuscany means you’re likely to need to fly if you’re UK based. You don’t have to fly to our Barges & Barns in Suffolk but it is the easiest way to get to Tuscany.

Flights

Holiday Cottage in Tuscany flightWe know a lot of our guests in the UK are in easy reach of Stansted.

Ryanair fly several times a day to Pisa and back. My favourite way to do this is by getting the 9:15am out, and the 6pm back. That way, you’re in Pisa or Lucca for lunch, and you have a pretty full day in Tuscany to do something on the day you come home.

They vary in price depending on the time of year but you can get flights from as little as £20.

Easyjet fly from Gatwick to Pisa, and British Airways fly from Heathrow to Pisa too.

Car Hire

Holiday Cottage in Tuscany Car HireI’m not on commission but I use Autoeurope. They have a wide selection of companies they use and are very cheap. They act as a broker for most of the main brands. I personally try to book Sicily By Car with them as they have always been helpful at the airport and the cars are in great order.

Your hire car is just a ten minute walk from the terminal and there is a shuttle bus if you want it too.

It’s then only a couple of miles into Pisa itself to see the sights. You may wish to hire your car a little later and get a cab in first, or vice versa if you’re exploring Pisa on the way back.

Driving there

For the adventurous amongst you if you’re heading out from the UK; you can of course drive there if you’re looking to take your dogs. It’s worth planning a trip through France and making a real road trip of it. You can also take in a bit of Switzerland too if you like!
