The province of Pisa borders with the province of Lucca to the North, while the boundary divides into the provinces of Florence and Siena to the East.

The boundary to the South-West side is occupied by the province of Livorno and, finally, the South-East side of the province borders with the province of Grosseto.

Pisa is situated in a wide alluvial plain (4 mt above the sea level), a few km far from the Tyrrhenian coast and extends on the two banks of the river Arno.
