Should you be planning a visit to Pisa for New Years Eve, you can
expect to be wowed by the festive atmosphere that surrounds the city
during December, from Christmas Markets to live entertainment,
taking the kids to see Santa and indulging in a cup of hot chocolate
whilst you walk around this beautiful place.
Pisa is perfectly placed too if you want to jump on the train for some day trips, including Florence, Lucca and also the Cinque Terre if you’re feel like exploring. But even if you just stay put in Pisa, take long walks along the river, wander through the streets and get to know the place, there’s some fabulous street art, beautiful gardens like Giardino di Scotto and of course go see the Leaning Tower of Pisa and Duomo Pisa… There are lots of street vendors too selling their wares. The last time I visited they had beautiful jewellery made from silver spoons and forks which was quite impressive.
They know how to party in Pisa for New Years Eve and the
beautiful city centre piazzas will be brimming with people looking
to celebrate and have a great time. Pisa is very family friendly and
there is lots of entertainment to keep you busy on the 31st
There are some amazing fireworks over the Arno River so position yourself towards the city centre and the Ponte Di Mezzo to get a great view. Pizza Garibaldi and Piazza XX Settembre will be 2 of the busiest squares but well worth looking out.
The bars and restaurants will have some great New Years events planned, so keep an eye out on the venues for updated information.
