Arrived at the prettiest airport, in Pisa. Visited the Pisa tower and surrounding area. Not much to Pisa beyond the tower area we discovered. Had really good pasta on both days - delicious. On the first evening we ended up surrounded by students and bars. I don't know why I keep trying cocktails - I really have not found one yet that I really like …
... 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 ...
... music performed by a professional orchestra. The performance was held in a a very old church, great acoustics but very hard benches, in the old walled city. Puccini wrote such things as Madame Butterfly and la Boheme among many others. Our performance was devoted to the music of Johann and Josef Strauss. It was an impressive experience finished with a drive home under a Tuscan ...
... Distressing moments require comfort food and San Gimignano does have a world championship winning gelato store. Yes, there is a world championship in gelato and I can verify San Gimignano's deserves the title. Nom nom nom nom The final stop for the day was Pisa. The bus pulled up just outside the city gates and we all boarded a little choo choo train for a ride to the Duomo and the leaning tower. (Correction Tschu tschu train) It surprised me to find out that they knew ...
... the throbbing clutch of tourists all spontaneously performing this specific photographic kung-fu maneuver makes the whole vista surreal. They appear as wrongminded worshipers to a wrongminded temple.
The real benefit of being in Pisa is there's so much tourist infrastructure that with some creative train-ticketing and an early start it makes for a really good base of operations. So with that in mind I performed the dark ritual ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Bonanno Pisa
we arrived into pisa airport late and were worried about getting a taxi into the centre, we found the taxi rank outside but no taxis came for ages and there were a few people waiting. a mini van came along shouting "pisa" and it was only 4 euro each to drop us off at our hotel! stoped at 2 along the way but it was a nice way to see the area.
Good hotel - ideal for both airport and the sights of Pisa
We stayed here on our last night in Tuscany as we were flying out of Pisa. It is very convenient for getting to the airport but is no more than 20 minutes walk to the Campo dei Miracoli (although the underpass under which you must walk wasn't very popular with my wife, like a previous reviewer, it seemed harmless enough to me).
The hotel is very modern, rooms are big, very clean and well appointed - very comfy beds. Staff very friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. Very bright and airy breakfast room. Eggs and bacon made a nice change from the usual breakfast although croissants etc were good, too. Has the feel of a 'business' hotel, so not for you if you want olde worlde charm, but very good value.
This hotel is less than a year old and looks like it. The rooms are adequate in size with uprated amenities. The staff is friendly and conversational in English. The hotel is a 14 euro cab ride from the airport, ten euros to the train station. It is less than a 10 minute walk through residential streets to the Piazza dei Miracoli and its famous Tower and Cathedral. (Don't miss the Museo dell Opera at the Piazza). The neighborhood is largely residential and fairly quiet although the hotel fronts on a fairly busy street. The breakfast included hot and cold items and was quite nice. Internet is available in the lobby for a fee.
Great new hotel!
This was a very new and high tech hotel. The bed was an actual King (without the twin beds pushed together!). The rooms were huge for European standards. It was very new with shades that opened by the press of a button and heat that turned off when the windows were opened. It was also very clean with a nice marble bathroom. I would ask for a room in a corner of the hotel (like room 325) as it offers a two windows - one of each side of the hotel with great views of Pisa. Great hotel!
Hi, I recently stayed in this Hotel with my parents as a 4 day break in the half term spring week. As a 15 year old, this will be more of a minor's opinion.
We Stayed in the Grand Hotel Bonanno for two nights. The Hotel is either new or has been refurbished throughout. The Rooms are compact, but are very clean and quiet. Our room was situated next to the elevator shaft and we didn't hear a thing throughout our stay. Our room has a huge double bed, minibar, blinds, double glazing, Flat screen TV and its own Satelite receiver, although the only English language channels of any use available on Hotbird are BBC World and Euronews.
Despite the lack of reviews due to the newness of this hotel, we decided it looked pretty good and managed to get a deal for £75 per night which is pretty good for a 4 star hotel in Tuscany.
This is a brand new hotel and it shows. Everything is very, very new. All of the rooms have flat screen televisions and minibars and very nice large bathrooms. I stayed in a room that had a little terrace and huge doors that could be opened to let in a nice breeze and fresh air. The staff was very, very helpful directing us to tourist sites and calling us a cab when we were leaving. The breakfast was nice and what you can expect in most European cities. One of the first hotels I have stayed in Europe that has very large queen sized beds in their double rooms. I only stayed there for one night on my way through to Florence, but I imagine it would be a good base to enjoy Tuscany from.
The Hotel itself is very clean and modern, the bedrooms although not large were fitted to a good standard with a decent king sized bed and shower. The breakfast was fine, hot & cold drinks, bread, ham, cheese, cereal, yoghurts, croissants, bacon & scrambled eggs.
We have just returned from a long weekend at the Grand Hotel Bonanno. We took a chance as I couldn't find any reviews. Having already cancelled the Grand Duomo and the Leonardo due to bad reviews I can honestly say we made the right descision.
