And with car hire included in many of the resorts, you can easily explore the nearby cities of Pisa, Florence, and Siena. From the iconic Leaning Tower of Pisa to the rose and mint-coloured façade of Florence's cathedral, you'll be able to take in the sights and sounds of Italy without sacrificing your beach vacation.
