Taxi ride 10€ and check-in priceless, thank Nacizio (sorry for any misspelling because he was great, na-cheese-c-o), we dropped our luggage and then Nacizio directed us to a place where we had dinner, yum, food was wonderful. Luigi the owner and Simone our waiter made us feel like very welcomed guests, the food was superb. (photos) After …
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 ...
... Two cheese toasties later we headed back to relax on the terrace in the sun.
We sat on the strange plastic chairs with our wine after Lyn had got glasses and ice from the grumpy barman. We sat there chilling, reading our Kindles and munching, all with a multi million dollar view in the sunshine. Life was good!
We headed out to look at the tower all lit up in the dark and then found a bustling little restaurant to eat at. It was a good last evening in Pisa!
... was made differently than others (using no yeast) and a fairly fruity red wine. The wine at this winery, which produces only 60,000 bottles annually, is mostly for the owner's restaurant in New York (70%), 10% goes to England and the rest is drunk by tourists like me(!) at these tastings or purchased by them to take with.
Back to the bus, which this time was only across the street, we returned to Florence by 7 pm-an hour or so later than planned, due to the ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
This hotel was good, the staff wonderful especially Nacizio ( sorry if I misspell). Good central location, we could walk every where, air conditioning ( it wasn't like our a/c but we have done with less) and wifi EVERYWHERE!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Verdi Pisa
Served its purpose
Stayed in family room with one other couple. Good location within walking distance (10 mins) of Tower. V. noisy night to band playing in next door church the night we stayed. Breakfast was good. The room was clean and the staff were friendly. The 2nd double bed was a sofa bed though. Good value for money.
After 12 days backpacking/camping across tuscany i checked into Verdi for 2 nights before flying home to the UK. A phone call to the hotel (after plucking the number from the Lonely Planet guidebook) put me through to a helpful young guy with better English than my Italian who gave me good directions and information.
Great hotel in a quiet location
This hotel wasn't in the center of Pisa, but it was a safe quiet location and well within walking distance of all of the sights of Pisa.
The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, and their English was good enough for us to get information about sights, trains, and restaurants. Everything went smoothly; the bathroom was a bit small, but clean and with good water pressure. We had an ugly view of an interior courtyard, but the room was bright and clean. In all, a wonderful stay.
Hotel Verdi is a great deal!
I travel to Italy quite frequently. I stayed at Hotel Verdi for most of summer 2000. I't s fine hotel for the money. The people are wonderful and very heplful. They'll make you feel at home. Parking is tight all over Pisa, but you can find parking. Hotel Verdi is very near Teatro Verdi. Pisa is a great town...I spent 2 summers there. A great inexpensive "home base" for exploring all of Tuscany. Tell the people at Verdi that Lou the trumpet player from Philly sent you!!!
