Tirrenia (located in the province of Pisa) is, by far, one of the most appealing destinations in terms of daytrips from the city of Pisa, though one may state this seaside resort makes its way through as a tourist destination in its own right, regardless of its tourist connection to Pisa. The main highlight of this resort is represented by its numerous fine sandy beaches which are fully equipped with facilities enabling sundry activities. Located in the very heart of a Mediterranean pine forest, Tirrenia enjoys both the benefits of a wooded topography and the kind maritime influences which, at their crossing point, yield great tourist opportunities.

Indeed, Tirrenia features countless leisure facilities, ranging from horse riding, tennis – at Tennis Tirrenia – and golf – at Cosmopolitan Golf & Country Club and at Tirrenia Golf Club – to sailing and underwater fishing. The fact that Tirrenia is so closely located to the International Galileo Galilei Airport of Pisa makes this resort conveniently accessible, and adding its solid tourist infrastructure – which consists of excellent accommodation solutions yielded by hotels and family-run pensions, as well as by camping sites, and excellent eating venues – Tirrenia is revealed as an imperative spot which should be ticked off once in Tuscany. As a further feature, Tirrenia is one of the Tuscan hubs in terms of nightlife opportunities, nighttime buzz being the reason why Tirrenia is so highly frequented by young people living or visiting the nearby city of Pisa and Livorno.

All in all, despite the fact its historic origins as seaside resort are not as pleasant as to be called forth each time one thinks about Tirrenia – Mussolini being the one who founded the city as part of his utopian fascist project – this resort has gained in time the right of being deemed worthy of the nowadays increasing popularity.
