Go straight to the train station after lessons and travel somewhere. It's cheap and entertaining. Also, try the outdoor films at Giardino Scotto.

Other comments
I would have liked more course options. As I only managed to do one half of the placement test and grammatical gaps began to show during the other half, the beginner course was too simple. But the second course that started would have been too difficult. Unfortunately, there was no intermediate level. That was a pitty but maybe it was due to the season or maybe I was just unlucky.

Go up the Tower, try spaghetti alle vongole, go on a trip to Lucca
Other comments
I stayed in both locations, first Pisa then Viareggio. The school in Pisa is bigger (more levels) but if you like the sea and riding bycicles along the seashore then Viareggio is the place for you.
