TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Verdi Pisa
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.
The Hotel looked great on arrival, a corner block pallazi with wooden shutters in a quiet square lined with the usual mopeds and tiny cars. the same guy on reception was polite and welcoming which was a relief given my appearance (bug bitten and lugging a backpack) and handing over a weighty key directed me to my room.
The single room was tiny but very clean, warm and traditionally decorated. Warm yellow walls, an old, large wooden wardrobe and a shuttered view into the square below. the bathroom was super clean, modern with a large walk in power-shower. Satellite tv and a very comfy bed made my last 2 nights in Italy bliss.
Ambling distance from plenty of shopping and trattoria and a bus ride from the plaza de miracales, i'd recommend this little gem to all visitors to Pisa.
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!!!

Started slowly this morning – it was quite foggy outside with a little bit of rain. I did washing etc, Di wanted to take it a bit easy because she didn't sleep well. Craig and Phil have gone for a big long walk in the local hills. It was great to take it easy. We eventually did go into Pistoia for another look around at things we hadn’t seen – ...
... br> Only 236 steps up. A cinch! You could see the indentations in the marble steps made by millions of feet. The spiral staircase is enclosed between the inner and outer wall, which was a bonus for those not thrilled about heights.
The actual leaning is the result of subsidence of the ground underneath the tower. In 1990, the degree of lean became 5.5, which was deemed unacceptable, so reinforcement of the sub-base area was ...
... climbing to the top, it's really a challenge! The steps circled around the inside of the Tower and you really had to fight the gravity to make it up the side that leaned. The view was completely worth it and we made it down the steps just a few minutes before the bells run...that would have not been good! We then viewed the Baptistry and cemetery on the grounds near the Tower. The Baptistry was nice but ...
... The Tower of Pisa and Cathedral's were built over several years by the ???? in direct completion to the people of Firenze (Florence) in a show of wealth and power. I is known that this rivalry still exists today. The original purpose of the Tower was a bell tower for the church. We took many obligatory photos trying to push the Tower in either direction and also of the surrounding grounds ...
Today I had a tour though the Tuscan countryside. First stop was Sienna, A lovely town not far from Florence. Sienna and Florence have had many wars over the years, the last one was about 450 years ago, but rivalry between the two is still very much there. The town is divided into 17 neighbourhoods, each with its own coat of arms, as we entered each neighbourhood the guide pointed out the coat of arms displayed clearly on the walls. Every so often we would come across a public ...
