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 …
... the money and languages. It's really cool to see that change. I've also gained a lot more confidence with creeps and sketchy situations than I started off with. I've probably been the rudest I've ever been but in order to avoid the people trying to sell you stuff or always saying "where you from" it's definitely necessary. It's turned into more of a life style and it's always changing but that's the addicting part of it! It's cool to feel ...
... through the city and visited the Leaning Tower! It was so entertaining sitting on the steps and watching people snap a million shots of them either leaning, jumping, holding or just posing with the tower. Jordyn and I had quite a few good laughs at some groups of people taking shot after shot. After taking our own photo, we walked back and grabbed some groceries for dinner. Unfortunately, the hostel we stayed at didn't have a fully equipped kitchen which got pretty annoying and we ...
... As we turned the corner and the tower came into sight, it was hard to believe that it was real. I was also surprised to see that there was so much more to Piazza del Duomo than just the Torre pendente di Pisa. We went ahead and bought our tickets to climb to the top and also to see the Cathedral and the Camposanto.
We started with the tower and as soon as you walk ...
... It was pretty stunning but closed for the night so just looked at it from outside. We walked from the square to another square which had heaps of statues, including a replica of Michelangelo's David. There were heaps of people around and it was a really nice night. There was also another very impressive fountain with more statues. We then walked to another square but were kind of over it by then so went back to the hostel to freshen up and sleep. Ready to explore Florence ...

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.
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!!!
