... here!! YAAAY!!!! Our apartment is great, and we are right across the street from Castel Sant'Angelo and walking distance from Vatican City. We walked to the castle and St. Peter's Square tonight and then went to dinner -- which was another delicious, family meal -- and then headed back to the apartment. We didn't go into anything just yet, just scoped out the area. So, tomorrow, we explore ROME!!!!! I have been dreaming about this since I've been a ...
We woke up this morning and found ourselves in Livorno, Italy, the port city for Florence. It was amazing how smoothly the ship sailed overnight. I never even realized we were moving, nor did I feel any vibration as the ship docked. Pretty impressive!
After a buffet breakfast in the Oceanview, we showered shaved and met up with the group at 10:00 dockside for our morning adventure. We decided we would take it a bit easy today, and we hired a cab ...

... at 11am. After yesterday's downpour it was good to see blue sunny skies once more - indeed it was lovely and warm today.
We took a taxi to the station from the B&B and it arrived very quickly, quicker than I thought so we had a bit of a wait till they announced the platform for our train, so we went and sat in McDonalds (there are actually 2 in Florence, one right in the station and one outside!!). Maccas has the advantage of free ...
Today we were headed for the Leaning Tower of Pisa. We jumped on the train and about 40 minutes later we arrived. Walking up to the site of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, I was impressed and surprised at just how much of lean it was on! There were 100’s of people around and all of them posing in the most random positions, holding up the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Santa Croce in Fossabanda Pisa
My daughters and I stayed for two nights in Feb 06. The staff are very good: helpful and welcoming. The hotel has lots of charm and character, the rooms were warm, clean and comfortable. The position of the hotel makes it ideal for getting into the centre of the city and is also well placed for the railway station and bus stops. I have no hesitation in recom mending this hotel: I shall certainly be back. Scotland 06
We stayed in the hotel santa croce in March 2006, the hotel was fantastic and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and tidy, and we had our own ensuite shower/bathroom. The hotels' grounds were lovely, and the place was so peaceful. It even has its own resident rabbit :-). The breakfast was really good, you have so much choice. The hotel is about a 25 min walk to Pisa's main attractions. The area where the hotel is situated is safe and it's a pleasant walk to the leaning tower and shops. Also from the airport the hotel is only a 10 minute drive away, we paid for a taxi around 9 euros. Which is good especially if you are getting an early morning flight. You can even get the number 9 bus around the corner from the hotel to the main train station which costs about 80 cent and takes 10 mins to get there, and if you were going to get the train to Florence a single ticket will cost you around 5 euros. Bus and train travel in Italy is very cheap.
we stayed at this hotel in March this year. We planned a two night weekend trip, We arrived in Pisa approx 10pm so we stayed at the Santa Croce over night, visited the Tower etc on Saturday morning and travelled on to Florence Saturday afternoon. stayed for one nightI loved it very minimalist, very clean, good continental style breakfast. My partner was less impressed He said he kept expecting the monks to step out of the wardrobe. The Santa Croce is a converted Monestry bare plastered walls and wood ceilings, but he agreed it was very clean. Only slight negative no bar- but we didn't intend to spend our time in the hotel bar.
My husband and I decided on a post Christmas break, and stayed at the Hotel Santa Croce for 4 nights from January 15th, 2006. It was absolutely charming. The rooms are indeed 'minimalist' but scrupulously clean and had everything we needed.
Nice place to stay as expectd
Lucky to get a good rate through an internet agent and this hotel is great value for money.
Basic but clean, modern and shower was good.
Our second visit to Pisa and the last time we did not stay in Pisa.
Dirty, chaotic town, still better than most towns/cities in Italy, we think.
Found food and drink inexpensive and very tasty.
Supermarket was a bliss except Fruits and Veg corner, where local Mammas fighting each other to pick the freshest. We don't encounter such a scene in Britain.
Hotel breakfast was simple but good. May not be huge like hot buffet at American style hotels but the quality of ham, salami and cheese and of course cappucino was brilliant.
Will stay there again as long as the charge is reasonable.
Lovely clean hotel with bags of character
although the rooms were basic, they were exceptionally clean and charming. The character of the convent has been retained and is very quiet, except for the occasional plane flying over and the 7.30a.m alarm call from the church bells next door. We thought the service was excellent and would definately recommend this hotel. The receptionist was very helpful, and gave us info on the trains, and also recommended a local restaurant, which was excellent.
Lovely hotel, not so lovely city
The hotel is lovely and is very quiet, peaceful and relaxing. As stated by others the rooms are quite sparce but contain everything you need. Breakfast is also very good. It takes about 10-15 mins to walk to the centre of Pisa and about 30-40 mins to the tower.
As for Pisa itself we were so disappointed as during the three days we spent there we could not find any shops open or any decent restaurants to dine in. Overall the hotel is very good, the tower and duomo are well worth a visit but don't expect too much from Pisa itself.
We spent a couple of nights in Pisa after a busy week in Florence, and Santa Croce was ideal.
Have just come back from Italy having stayed in Santa Croce on our first and last night. The hotel was ideal for our family. We had two spacious interconnecting rooms which were clean, cool and peaceful. Breakfast was a good selection of cereals, breads, fruits, yogurts, meats and cheeses and as much as you wanted. The staff were friendly and helpful and there is a resident white rabbit in the central courtyard to the children's amusement. The centre of Pisa is easily within walking distance and there is an excellent organic restaurant just around the corner (La taverna di Pillo, Via del Borghetto 39). The hotel parking is secure and was uncrowded during our visit. The hotel is about 5-10 minutes drive from the airport which made it an ideal place to stay the night before an early flight.
Quiet, clean but very spartan
I stayed 4 nights here in a large clean but very plain room overlooking the gardens. It is a converted monastery and feels like it! When I stayed it was quiet but it is also a conference centre so could be busy at times I suppose. The staff were polite, the breakfast was simple international buffet style but good quality. It takes about 20 minutes to walk into the centre of Pisa and about 30 minutes to the leaning tower. It has its own car park.
