I am planning a trip to Italy, I would love to visit venice, Rome and Pisa and hopefully alot more. Anyone out there who has any tips please? I just plan on booking a flight and doing the rest as I go.
What is the best way to get from Cruise port ot see the leaning tower of Pisa?
Is Schiaccia Nocchi still going?
I roughly know about the location of Pisa's ZTL-areas. My guide recommend parking lots at Via Cesare Battisti (near the railway station) and at Lungarno Guadalongo. I'm afraid to cross the ZTL when searching this parking lots, so do you have some advise, how to get there without crossing the ZTL? Or is there a secure way to bypass the ZTL and reaching a parking lot coming from Lucca?
Btw: I've got GPS-based route guidance system, but it does not "know" the Italian ZTLs...
Can i buy the train ticket from Pisa train station to florence on the same day of travel? if cant can i travel by bus and will i be able to by the bus ticket?
Does anyone know the name of a walled town/village/city north of Pisa that is much more interesting than Pisa. I have been to Pisa several times but someone mentioned that a taxi driver took him there on the promise that he would enjoy it much more than Pisa or the trip was free. He gladly paid.
We have 3-4 Options for this trip, but i am not sure how to start with which city.. 1-Option: Thursday Night at 22pm arrival in Pisa. Sleeping there, friday 2 hours seeing tower, going to florenz by train, seeing the florenz all day, sleeping there, in the morning going to Rome. Sa-Su-Mo 3 days in rome sleeping, seeing around. Tuesday we have to go back to Pisa to take the return plane which is at 19.40. The thing is, we have to go back through florenz central station (train change). That's why i was thinking whether to visit florenz at the end of the holiday..
PisaCentral Florenz (direct)
Florenz Rome (direct)
Rome PisaAirport (over Florenz)
2- Option: Thursday Night at 22pm arrival in Pisa. Sleeping there, friday 2 hours seeing tower, going to ROME by train, Fr-Sa-Su 3 days in rome sleeping, seeing around. Monday going to Florenz (direct train). Monday afternoon-Tuesday morning seeing florenz. Then going to Pisa airport (direct train) from florenz.Which do you think is a better route? Or can you advise something different?
PisaCentral Rome (direct)
Rome Florenz (direct)

3-4. Options: Going to Pisa at Sunday Afternoon (16pm). Seeing Pisa. Going to Florenz or Rome (as the 1.and 2. Options). In totalk staying 1 day less than 1.and 2. Options. (e.g. 2 Days in Rome).
We have a connection in Pisa Centrale to Monterosso with 15 minutes in between. Are the tracks easy to find with enough time to catch the next train.
I'm coming to Pisa in about a week with a few friends. Can you please give us some suggestions of good restaurants to eat good Italian pizza and pasta and good bars with a fun or authentic ambiance? THANK YOU!!!!!
Hi everyone, I'm going to Pisa for 3 days with 2 friends in March and I was wondering if you could tell me the "must-see and must-dos" (other than the obvious) of Pisa. Good cafes, good restaurants (not expensive), sights, markets, activities etc. Your responses are much appreciated!
My friends will be in Florence for a few days and do not want to make a reservation online now due to weather uncertainty.
Is mid-September very crowded at Pisa? If one wants to climb up to the leaning tower in the afternoon, will there be enough time to make the reservation around noon at the office onsite on the same day?
I was just wondering if anyone could give me any advice as to whether sitting on a particular side of the plane when flying into Pisa is good for views (i.e. of the tower)??
I've just come back from Venice and sitting on the right of the plane gave me spectacular aerial views as I descended, which I would have missed if I had been on the other side. Just thought it was worth checking!!
Are there luggage lockers or other short term luggage storage at Pisa Centrale railway station, or nearby ?
I am looking for a good artist shop where I can but oil paint and brushes... not the kind of shop for grand'ma wishing to do her bricolage. ;) ... rather the kind serious artists go to...
thanks, I am looking forward to my visit :)
We're looking for a decent place to get good chow in Pisa. I recall being there 4 years ago and found myself walking along the river and the way that the sun hit the buildings....boy that was a good memory of a pretty place. Are there any good eating places along the river for after our visit to the Tower on the way back to the train station? Maybe something with a view of the river or bridge?
What is the best way to get from the cruise docking port to the city
I have been to the station in Pisa but I never noticed if there was lockers or baggage claim.
Does anyone know if this is available at the station in Pisa
My friend and I are doing the Pisa Marathon on December 18th. Would there be anywhere to go out that's open late that night? As in past midnight? If not in Pisa, then nearby? I'm guessing it could be quite quiet on a Sunday night late in December!
I will be attending graduate school in Pisa from January 2012 through July 2012. I'd appreciate any advice or suggestions on how I can go about doing the following while I'm there:
1. Share an apartment with an Italian (for500 a month or less including utilities)
2. Earn money teaching or tutoring English (or by doing anything else that's moral, for that matter).
3. Travel around Italy and maybe the rest of Europe on weekends (on a shoestring). Suggestions for excursions would be appreciated.
Any specifics (names, addresses, etc.) would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Hi, we're travelling to Pisa for a weekend in a couple of weeks. Does anyone know of anywhere we can get cocktails and indulge in some people watching?
We are arriving at Pisa Airport September 3rd and want to get to Viareggio. Taxi costs expensive.Can we get a bus or train?
From Livorno docks can I get to Pisa and Puccini Lake by taking local trains or using a taxi?
I need advice from fellow chocoholics. We'll have only one afternoon and evening in Pisa. The easiest place to get a fix seems to be the De Bondt shop in the city.
Or is the factory worth visiting? We will be coming in from Florence by train. Is stopping and getting there and back to the train easily done? Can the train ticket be used with a stop?
Is Amedei worth the 15 miles out of town? Is bus or train easier? Do they have anything there that I can't get in shops in Pisa or Florence?
And most importantly, what kinds of chocolate can only be bought in Italy and not ordered on the net?
Do you think that 24hrs are enough to visit the main attractions in the centre of Pisa.
Is there a limit to how long you can store luggage at the Pisa train station? I'm looking for a place to store some wine for about 10 days. (I'm cruising out of Rome and the cruise ship won't let you bring wine on board at departure. But you can bring alcohol on board at the various ports, and we're stopping at Livorno so I figured I could pick up my wine at the Pisa train station and bring it on board the ship then, assuming I can keep it at the station that long.)
After reaching Pisa airport, can I leave my baggage at the airport (is it economical) and get tickets for LAM Rossa bus/bus21 at airport itself? How far is the bus terminal from the airport?
We'll be arriving in Livorno on Star Princess in September and would appreciate advice on the best way to get to Pisa independently.
Hello, We discovered we are too late to buy tower tour tickets on our travel dates [on/around June 13]. Are there alternative online sources for last minute tickets or resales?
Doubtless for some a very touristy/ cheesy thing to want to do, but... Does anyone know of any opera or other musical events occuring between 18 - 29 June in Pisa or nearby (Lucca/ Florence)? i think i'd read somewhere there is something going on near the Leaning Tower???
Or indeed any other 'must see' events at this time? I have already noted the Medieval Pisa festival on the Arno on the last Sunday but is there anything else i could mark in my diary (it would be helpful to know when NOT to book my Uffizi ticket!)
I am arriving at Pisa airport at 11am in morning and have to catch a pre-paid bus for Lucca at 3pm. Is it sufficient for me to visit the leaning tower and what would be the economical and easiesr way of commuting between the two places?
