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.
Stayed in the Annex which was actually closer to the leaning tower (completely awesome by the way!) than the main hotel & by close, I mean literally a few strides away-wonderful location!! Basic room but clean & nice bathroom, shower was excellent. Tiny TV but not a huge problem as obviously not ...
Clean rooms, great breakfast, literal steps away from train station, & overall a great stay. If I’m ever back in Pisa, I will be back to NH.
The staff were very helpful. We had a smooth late check in. The hotel is very close to the leaning tower and the train station so it's easy to get to for example Florence and cinque terre. Highly recommended
Great hotel, staff very helpful. Only missed out on 5 stars as room walls are awefully thin and you can hear everything next door. Beds are also hard so woke up with sore back. Rooms are refreshingly modern. Breakfast buffet was superb in terms of variety, freshness and presentation.,
The washroom had a really bad smell the first day. Then I informed the maid and she fixed it and it was good afterwards
The rooms are dated - feels like you are in some eerie property - with burgundy carpets and old furniture The street is eerily dingy and in the middle of the night u will feel scared -for a few mins - and then will feel - oh this is actually quite OK! but a great loaction - literally round the corner ...
