Pisa

A travel blog entry by vmckinley11

After trying to visit Pisa a few days ago, we wanted to return with more time. With a map this time, we headed to Piazza del Duomo. We had to carry all of our stuff so that was interesting but we found somewhere to eat on the way for a rest. We got pizza in Pisa! :) Once we got to the piazza, we were laughing to ourselves because so many tourists (probably American) had their ...

Leaning toward some touristy stuff

A travel blog entry by phil.ferrero

Today the plan is to drive south on the Autostratta Azzurra to Pisa to see what many consider the national symbol of Italy: the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The famous tower is actually the bell tower in the Field of Miracles, which includes the Cathedral, the Bascilica, and the Camposanto, which is a cemetary. The Camposanto, we read, is filled with dirt moved here from Jerusalem as part of the ...

... we might think.

I was very excited to be walking up the Tower. It has been something I've wanted to see and do ever since we were first introduced way back in year 4.

Walking up a leaning tower is a very cool experience. Everything is a little 'off'. When you look up the centre it's on an angle, the steps are on an angle, even the way you walk is on an angle. Besides from the lean, I found the look ...

Sunny Day at Pisa !

... enchanting, impressive and magical !!

We had booked our entry tickets to the Leaning Tower of Pisa through online itself and hence were spared of standing in the queue. The Leaning Tower of Pisa is the freestanding bell tower, of the cathedral of Pisa, known worldwide for its unintended tilt to one side. The tower's tilt began during construction, caused by an inadequate foundation ...

The leaning tower of Pisa

... quickly realised how little the town had to offer tourists. We made the short walk from the station and came across the yard in which the leaning tower is located. There were quite a few people viewing the tower and most of them trying to get the best pose of pushing it upright. We of course did the same, me taking probably too many goes at getting the shot and really testing Paul's patience. The leaning tower was a good photo moment but not that amazing.

I am glad we saw the ...

    Beautiful hotel, friendly service

    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).

    Great night at this hotel

    from

    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.

    What a find!

    from

    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

    from

    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

    Great Place to Stay

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    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!!

    from

    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.

    Great place

    from

    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

    from

    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.
