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..

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? Thanks!
Hi, 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!! Thanks, Darren
Are there luggage lockers or other short term luggage storage at Pisa Centrale railway station, or nearby ?
Hello 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 :) cheers
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 Thanks, Randy
Hi, 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! Thanks, Keith
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? Thanks
Dear All, Do you think that 24hrs are enough to visit the main attractions in the centre of Pisa. Thanks alot
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!) thanks.
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?
i have planned a trip to pisa italy on 8 june and was wondering if somebody can give me a hint on where i could go shop for alot of good shoes and clothes,at reasonable prices
I have booked my holiday in Pisa for 18-29 June. I see there is a festival on the Arno on the last Sunday - sounds like fun! I would like to visit Florence, Lucca and if possible Siena and Volterra. Is this too ambitious on a 10 day holiday or is transportation easy and stress-free? Should i take the trains or buses? or is it easier / cheaper to hire a car for any of these trips? Is car hire/ petrol expensive? Are the roads and signs easy to navigate for foreigners?? Sorry, lots of questions! It would be nice to be able to have some time to relax in the sun too. Are there any places for sunbathing in Pisa or elsewhere? Thanks.
I have 5 days in Tuscany. Planning 3 days in Florence and 2 in Pisa but I appreciate the input of some locals. is there another town I should visit? and is two days plenty for Pisa (not quite sure what to do there other than Pisa Tower and Duomo?) Grazie!
What is the best way to get from the pisa airport to a hotel in Livorno?
I'm considering booking a flight to Pisa (18-29 June) for holiday there or nearby. Recently single therefore looking for somewhere to stay which is 'single girl - friendly'. Any suggestions of a nice hotel / somewhere not too expensive, relaxing in the sun, preferably with a pool, but not full of honeymooners or children? I would be extremely grateful. Thanks lots. Similarly, any recommendations for a female on her own would also be very much appreciated.
Hi Heading to Italy at the end of the month and spending one night in Pisa. Getting in very late, around 23.30 and by the time we get to the hotel I'd imagine it will be well after 12! Just wondering if anyone on here would be able to tell me if there would still be places to grab a bite to eat and have a drink at that hour? I see a lot of restaurants in the area around the hotel close at 11 or so. It's really just a flying visit but I would like to see a little bit of the city at night!! Any info would be much appreciated! Cheers
