The beautiful Tuscan city of Pisa has far more photo opportunities than just its famous Leaning Tower. The winding streets of the city’s historic center straddle the River Arno and are home to cozy bars and organic food restaurants alongside impressive historic and architectural attractions.
Explore the city on foot or by bicycle, or use public transport, because car parking spaces are scarce. The Leaning Tower, the freestanding campanile (bell tower) of the Duomo, is where most people are headed. While there, negotiate with street vendors for souvenirs.
The tower and cathedral sit at the center of the walled Piazza dei Miracoli, which has two more examples of Pisa’s diverse architecture: the Pisa Baptistry and the Camposanto, the cemetery.
Walk past the trees of the Piazza Martiri della Libertà on your way to the historic center of Pisa. At Knights’ Square, study the facades of the Palazzo della Carovana and Palace of the Putean College, which now house the students of the prestigious Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa.
After a day of walking the historic district, order a bowl of sullo scio, a type of soup, or a pasta in one of its cafés. Then do as the local families do and stroll along the banks of the Arno. Don’t miss the picturesque, but tiny, Gothic church Santa Maria della Spina.
Pisa has hot summers and mild winters. As in most typical Tuscan cities, there is not much nightlife, so you’ll be able to rise early to visit the fresh produce market in Piazza delle Vettovaglie or shop for fashion in the nearby arcade of Borgo Stretto.
Many people see Pisa as a steppingstone to the rest of Tuscany, by making use of Pisa’s nearby international airport and, after a quick visit to the Leaning Tower, taking the fast intercity train to Florence or beyond. However, it is recommended to stay overnight if you want to experience Pisa’s true beauty.
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 ...
Dinner was A++++++. We shared a octopus soup which was so tender then the mains where delicious. Only a 20 min stroll to the leaning tower ect and very easy to find 9€ from train station to hotel. Definitely recommend.
Absolutely perfect for our one night stay in Pisa! Immediately next to the train station which has a shuttle to the airport (goes every 10 minutes). It was so much better than a base to stay for the night - the hotel is modern and sleek inside, and the staff were helpful. Its about a 15 minute work ...
I thought is was closer to the airport, probably my bad for not looking more closely.
