The beautiful Tuscan city of Pisa offers a lot more than just those photo moments with the famous Leaning Tower. In the winding streets of the historic city centre you will not only find cosy bars and organic restaurants, but also impressive historical and architectural landmarks.
Explore the compact city centre on foot or by bike, or use the city’s affordable and efficient public transport. Parking spaces are hard to find here, so we don’t recommend hiring a car, unless you want to explore further afield, of course. Naturally, most people want to visit the Leaning Tower, the freestanding bell tower next to the cathedral to get the infamous ‘push’ picture. The tower and cathedral stand in the middle of the walled Piazza dei Miracoli, where you will also find two other architectural triumphs of Pisa: Pisa's Baptistery and Camposanto Cemetery.
Stroll amongst the trees of Piazza Martiri della Libertà to the historic centre of Pisa. Walk through the Knights Square and see the ancient walls of the Palazzo della Carovana. Check out the historic Palazzo del Collegio Puteano, which now houses the students of the prestigious Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa.
After a day spent walking through the historic centre, why not enjoy a bowl sullo scio or delicious pasta at one of the many cafés. Then do what local families do and stroll along the banks of the Arno, and visit the picturesque but small gothic church of Santa Maria della Spina.
Many people consider Pisa as a starting point for visiting the rest of Tuscany. There are plenty of rapid intercity trains travelling to Florence or further afield from Pisa’s main station. However, we recommend you at least stay overnight if you want to fully experience the true beauty of Pisa.
We really loved our stay here. When we arrived we got upgraded which was a nice surprise! The grounds of the hotel have a relaxing feel. The pool area is very nice. There is also a pool bar- the man behind it is lovely. We had pizza and a toastie from the pool bar and thoroughly enjoyed both. We ...
The hotel was centrally located and close to the train station and airport. The only negatives were that the bathroom was cramped and had no counter space. In addition, the tile floors in the hallway caused a lot of noise during the night with roller bags. Everything else was good.
Absolutely perfect location. Breakfast was above average. Unfortunately when I decided to stay an extra day b/c I had work I needed to do, they moved me to an attic room that did not have a good internet connection (when I had no problems in my original ground floor room). As I had said why I needed ...
