A Great Pisa Vacation Plan
Pisa is a one-hour drive from Florence. You can also get a train directly to Florence from a Central rail station in Pisa (Pisa Centrale). Local buses connect the city of Pisa with all the neighboring cities (come to Pontedera, then take a bus for Volterra, San Miniato, etc.).
Pisa has become one of the top tourist destinations in the world, and especially in Europe. Being a popular place, Pisa gets rushy during the tourist season and it becomes very difficult to find suitable accommodation that suits your taste, budget and style. A number of factors need to be considered when booking a place for your stay.
Bed and Breakfast accommodation in Pisa is very popular for those who would like the comfort of a hotel but at a more affordable price. B&B's are often like a home from home and visitors can pick up some good tips and advice from their hosts on where to go and how to get the most from their visit.
Once a maritime power to rival Genoa and Venice, Pisa now draws its fame from an architectural project gone terribly wrong. But the world-famous Leaning Tower is just one of many noteworthy sights in this compact and compelling city. Education has fuelled the local economy since the 1400s, and students from across Italy still compete for places in its elite university and research schools. This endows the centre of town with a vibrant and affordable cafe and bar scene, and balances what is an enviable portfolio of well-maintained Romanesque buildings, Gothic churches and Renaissance piazzas
