    • Lucca to Rapallo by train

      by adblackburn Online Now Apr 15, 2014 at 5:42 AM

      I'll be leaving Lucca on Mon 2nd June to go to Rapallo. I notice I have 35 minutes to change train at Pisa centrale and only 12 minutes to change if I go via Viareggio which confusingly has more than one station with the same name. I'm guessing that Pisa centrale is huge. Which is the easier option? Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks.

      ZTL and parking in Pisa

      by schmechi Online Now Sep 17, 2013 at 12:12 PM

      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...

      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.

    • How to arrange a 4-5 day trip between Pisa-Florenz-Rome

      by akcapakca Online Now Apr 3, 2013 at 12:47 AM

      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)

      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)

      Florenz PisaAirport (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).

      Reserve time for Pisa tower

      by FreeCloud Online Now Sep 3, 2012 at 11:21 AM

      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?

      Which side of the plane...

      by darrensunley Online Now Jul 3, 2012 at 1:07 AM


      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!!

      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?

      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!

      Chocoholic in Pisa

      by HarmoniousBotch Online Now Aug 6, 2011 at 7:26 PM

      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?

    • Luggage Storage in Pisa Train Station

      by loomz Online Now Jul 14, 2011 at 12:43 PM

      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.)

      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!)
