Jersey is the most southerly island of the British Isles and is the largest of the Channel Islands, providing visitors with a kaleidoscope of lush valleys, well-kept fields and an unspoilt coastline. The sea dominates the landscape with stunning views of the surrounding Atlantic Ocean accessible from virtually every point on the island. The 45 miles of coastline also offers a variety of majestic cliffs, sandy beaches and rocky coves. Jersey is also a popular business destination with numerous banks and businesses taking advantage of Jersey’s generous taxation scheme and its growing conference trade.
Pisa is a historic town in picturesque region of Tuscany, situated near the Arno river. Once a city of political and cultural importance, Pisa is now mostly famous for its leaning tower, one of its architectural masterpieces. Pisa is crammed full of wonderful, historical monuments and buildings dating back hundreds of years and much of Pisa has retained its medieval appearance making it not only a beautiful destination to visit but an educational treat for the whole family.
David Osborne, easyJet’s UK General Manager, said:
“Two popular destinations with something for everyone. Jersey is home to a stunning coastline for the water sports enthusiasts and the main street is a shoppers’ delight, where duty free is plentiful. Pisa boasts not just the legendary leaning tower, but also several other attractions, and is a perfect gateway to the stunning region of Tuscany and the near by city of Florence.”
