I am trying a new way to send out information and pictures so be patient while I am learning. The day following our trip to Cinque Terre is a down day, relaxing outside on the balcony and doing some laundry. We have been cooking a lot of our meals here and tonight we are off to a restaurant recommended by Vivette. Well it is more than a restaurant. They have their own vineyards and make their own wine, have olive trees and make their ...
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 ...
And so today we had an early start to head across into the town of Pisa. Looks can be decieving and we had to almost be at the tower before spotting it.
After our tour with Michaela of the Baptistry and Cathedral, most of the group decided to climb the 200 odd steps to the top of the tower. Until 1999 it was leaning at around 5.5* and after removing and replacing many, many cubic metres ...

It's a ridiculous place of unrivaled splendor. It shouldn't even exist outside of the sticky fantasies of landscape photographers. It's absurd. At one point I came across two cats sitting on a picnic table in the middle of the track and immediately fancied I was having some kind of strange and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Ariston Pisa
I stayed in this hotel for one night in January, with my husband.
Super little hotel
An excellent place to stay in Pisa, right next to the leaning tower and the cathedral. The rooms are quite small, but well presented and the bathroom was immaculate. The staff are very helpful, organising a taxi back to the airport for an early morning flight.
I would definately recommend this hotel
We stayed in this hotel for one night (9th Oct 2005) before flying home after a week in Tuscany. We paid 130 Euros for a Double Room with a "put-me up" for a third person - Breakfast 10 Euros each extra.
Ubicación excelente, habitación estupenda
El Ariston es un hermoso hotel. Literalmente queda en la sombra de la famosa Torre Inclinada. Recientemente lo renovaron a un alto estándar, y se siente más como un hotel de cuatro estrellas que de sus simples tres. El baño estaba impecable. Las habitaciones estaban decoradas con gusto, y había un área pública y amplia en el primer piso. El desayuno es el continental básico con pan, cruasanes, jugo de naranja, y café. Fue perfectamente adecuado. ¡Una verdadera joya!
Excellent location, great room.
The Ariston is a lovely hotel, literally in the shadow of the famous leaning tower. It's recently been renovated to a high standard and feels more like a 4-star hotel than its mere three.
Immaculate bathroom, tastefully decorated rooms and a spacous public area on the ground floor.
Breakfast is the basic continental; bread, coissant, orange juice and coffee. Perfectly adequate.
A real little gem!
Great location shame about the staff!!
We stayed in this hotel for one night before our flight home the next day. This hotel is perfect for one/two nights but no more. The location is amazing as the tower is right on its doorstep and provides a unique setting straight from the front door. We had a VERY basic room at the back of the hotel and it seemed no improvements had been made in our room!. The staff were very unfriendly (not a smile to be seen!) which was a change to the pleasant Italians we had come across on our holiday. Overall the hotel has a great location but with no frills.
Leaning Tower out the Window!
Clean, simple hotel literally steps away from the Leaning Tower! Very nice folks at the front desk. We were only here for 1 night and it was just fine. Our room was on the street with a great view but a little noisy at night being so close to the Tower. Left very early in the morning, too early for breakfast, but the desk clerk made us an espresso and offered us pastries, even though they were not serving yet.
Perfect location and good value
Just atayed here one night to be near airport and I found this to be a simple clean hotel offering good value for money. My room was small but had a lovely modern bathroom and air conditionig. The hotel is literally two minutes walk from the tower and about 5 minutes from the bus stop for the bus to the airport. Nothing fancy but fine for one or two nights.
The hotel itself is fairly old and basic. The room had a new bathroom which was lovely although the shower is handheld. The view from the front rooms is stunning with the Tower right in your line of vision. The staff were a bit sober and very rarely passed the time of day. We stayed in this hotel for a week which was too long in my opinion as there is not a lot to do after the Miracle of the fields.
I gave this hotel an above average rating for its location.This hotel is right at the back of the leaning tower and I promise you there is nothing any closer. Each time I looked out my window or stepped out the door of the hotel the leaning Tower was there I found this Fabulous . Sitting at breakfast ,stepping out for a bit of air and you are at the tower The hotel was nice but basic There are new showers in some of the rooms but not all .It is perhaps a bit isolated after dark but I was there in March so may not be a a concern in the buzz of summer
