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 …
... Spezia, we were on our way! Once we got to the station, we bought a ticket for the entrance to the national park, and took another train towards the villages! That day we visited Manarola, Monterosso, and Vernazza. Unfortunately, the hiking paths connecting the towns were closed due to landslides and rainfall, but in hindsight it was probably for the best in letting my heels rest! I will most definitely come back to Cinque Terre! The views are absolutely breathtaking, and would be ...
... one lane yet still two way. You just had to hope that no-one was coming down as there was so way to know. There were tiny 3 wheeled trucks managing these roads, with a lot more confidence than we were. Onto the freeway it wasn’t long before we reached Pisa, our stop on the way to Tuscany. We passed beautiful snow-capped mountains and many marble factories with huge stones, cubes, slabs of marble upon marble.
The town itself is not particularly special, but turning ...
... fly from Rome to Prague at 8 pm. I would get into Rome around 6:30. It was tight. I booked the tickets, and was ready to slow down and breathe for a bit. I had about 90 minutes before needing to catch the train. My email rang with a notification that my flight ticket was not going to be issued until I faxed or emailed a copy of my passport and credit card. COME ON. The running around continued, and between getting reluctant help from the concierge ...
... baptistry in the world, which is located right next to the leaning tower. It has a double dome which leads to incredible echos. We were not allowed to make noise in the building, but were just in time for the 3 o'clock singing by a worker. It was really beautiful sounding! In the baptistry building, it used to be that the roof was completely open since the rain water was holy water since it was directly from God. Before this was even said, ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Alessandro della Spina Pisa
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.
