After not very much sleep, our plane touched down in London. We de-boarded the plane with eyes like four burnt holes in two blankets wondering how we were going to stay awake for the few hours until our next flight to Pisa. Our first tactic was to eat breakfast - the porridge was okay but the coffee was so putrid we feared in may cause our systems …
... Vivette. So so yummy. The next day we take John to the airport, as he is flying back to Houston for a day, then up to Toronto for his board meeting. We drop him at the airport and then drive to the train station in Pisa, where we park, while Marilyn takes Kathy down to see the Leaning Tower. Upon their return we drive to Viareggio, a beach town with sandy beaches lined with many, many resorts, that is a half hour drive from Pisa. We must ...
My knowledge of music is so limited. My first, and few, recollections of classical music are the Looney Tunes cartoons. And apart from Dance and ballet, I have had very little experiences with the classics. Our trip into Lucca, the birthplace of Giacomo Puccini, was very interesting. Lucca has a permanent festival honoring this man. Every night of the year, there is Puccini and ...
... an unusual dome. If you stand in the middle and sing, the notes will come back to you so you can sing along with yourself. One of the monks demonstrated for us, it was really quite impressive. I so wanted to follow up with a rendition of Janis Joplin's Mercedes Benz, but thought that might not go down so well When I returned to the hotel I opened uo the windows to let some air in. The sounds of Florence night life start drifting though the windows, its really quite nice. ...
... forth the dark persona of legs, rage and sweat known to my enemies as Hiking Self, and was off to begin walking one of Italy's most lovely stretches of coastline, the Cinque Terre.
Cinque Terre is what all coastlines would look like is the earth was designed by Walt Disney. The glowing, verdant hills give way to overgrown terraced agriculture and shady re-entrants which shelter cool, flowing streams. The emerald cliffs lead down into ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
My mum and I only stayed one night but were very impressed with our stay. The room itself was beautifully furnished and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. It was very convenient to the main railway station though perhaps a slightly longer walk to the Leaning Tower than I had anticipated (still very manageable).

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Alessandro della Spina Pisa
Having decided to travel and plan our holiday to Tuscany, we opted to fly from Liverpool to Pisa, then travel to Florence by train on the same day. On the return journey spending a day in Pisa with an early morning flight back to Liverpool.
I stayed here with my husband and two teenagers on the last night of our holiday before flying home. The hotel is a gem. It's small but it's very clean and well cared for. I read previous reviews of this hotel and hoped that people weren't exaggerating. I needn't have worried. We had a double and a twin room which they located close to each other for us and the rooms were very well furnished. The beds were the most comfortable of our entire trip and the rooms had air conditioning, minibar and satellite tv (with BBC World - our first english telly of the holiday!). The bathrooms were spotless and of a good size with a great shower and lovely tiling. The hotel has its own small car park around the back, which is watched from Reception via CCTV. The staff were really helpful. They told us how to get from the hotel to centre of Pisa, although we got a little lost trying to follow the map the hotel provided (this is my only moan). They also recommended a great little restaurant,(Pizzeria Galileo), for an evening meal which they then booked for us because they only serve breakfast. We needed a 24 hour chemist and they told us of one close by. The hotel is about 15 minutes walk from centre of Pisa and is only about 5-10 minutes drive from the airport which made the morning departure really simple.
Super hotel lovely staff
Just returned from a flying visit to Tuscany staying at the Bella Spina. All reviews were spot on lovely hotel very clean and the staff just perfect would definately recommend
This is a lovely small hotel in a quiet area. The room was modern, nicely furnished and spotless. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
Would highly recommend the Allesandra Della Spina
We found the hotel to be in a good location, off the main road and so quiet at night. The hotel is very tastefully furnished and comfortable. We found the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful. We asked for recommendations for somewhere to eat and they booked us into Gallileos which we would never have found where we had a lovely meal which didn't cost the earth. We would happily recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Pisa.
Couldn't stay anywhere better
Superb location [five minutes by taxi from airport], close enough [though south of the river] to stroll to all attractions, shops, restaurants. Beautifully decorated, rooms are REALLY large for three stars, spotlessly clean, lovely shower room, telly, great breakfast, v. helpful staff. They have parking too, so if like us you would like to tour round Tuscany in the future using Pisa as a base it would be great.
Need I say anymore ?? Room was only 110 euros. Bargain.

Welcome To Pisa!
Just back from Pisa. First time in Italy. I wasn't sure what to expect. We booked the Alessandro Della Spina for it's central location. Glad we did. Short walk to Train Station for trips to Florence and Lucca, Turin and Milan etc. Central to Main Piazza and 5 minutes from Airport on No.3 bus. Staff were wonderful and spoke very good English. Instantly we were given direction on how best to see Pisa and find our way around. Beds and Bathroom cleaned everyday including Sunday. Clean, cheap, friendly hotel, well worth visiting and revisiting. BBC World only English speaking tv channel but hey we didn't visit to watch television. Well worth it's 3 star superior rating.
3 star plus!!
Pleasantly surprised. The hotel is nicely renovated and the bedroom is a good size. Staff are friendly and informative. The location is excellent, close enough to the train station but not on top of it. All other sights are within walking distance.
Breakfast is very basic but sufficiant. All rooms have free broadband internet connection for laptops.
BBC world is the only english speaking channel available on tv.
Hotel was central location. Breakfast was good. Staff great. Room very clean and spacious. mini bar in room cheap. would recommend this hotel. great for a three star hotel.
Great Value for money
I was a little bit worried when I booked this hotel for a cheap weekend away in Pisa for my fiance birthday as it was so cheap, but I shouldn't have worried just renovated, larger than average rooms nicely decorated with a large bathroom and great shower. We will be staying there again on our next visit.
