Pisa City Break

This Tuscan city is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world and home to one of the most famous buildings in the world, the Leaning Tower of Pisa. But this is far more than just a one trick pony town, with far more to offer than this one famous building.

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 ...

        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.,
