      Vespa rentals

      Siena Feb 4, 2017 at 6:38 AM

      We want to rent vespas while in Siena. Found a company that will bring them to our hotel. Is it best to do this with a tour, or would we be good to head out without a guide?

      How many days?

      Florence Feb 2, 2017 at 6:00 PM

      We are planning on a trip to Rome and Florence for 7 days total. I've been to Rome and think we need 4 days to get the best experience, but that leaves 3 days for Florence. Is that enough? One of us want to see Florence above all cities in Italy (not me, I want to see Rome). Thanks!

    • What to do in a day and a half and restaurant suggestions....

      by SMacN Online Now Oct 28, 2016 at 4:29 AM

      Our family of four, 2 adults and 2 - 13 year olds, have just snapped up cheap tickets for a weekend in Pisa. We will be there from Dec 16-18 and technically on the ground for a half day and one full day. I see there is a free city tour, which we are big fans of doing and of course we will check out the tower. Can anyone recommend some other things to do? Is there a market area? Also looking for some good restaurant suggestions, not take away, but nice budget family friendly restaurants with some nice Italian food, which we all love. Since we have so little time on the ground we want to make the most of it. Thanks!

      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...

      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..

Or can you advise something different?

      PisaCentral Rome (direct)

      Rome Florenz (direct)

      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...

      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!!
