Florence to Pisa or Siena

by jenna77

We've got a free day in Florence, and would like to see another city nearby, should it be Pisa or Siena, I am with my boyfriend, which one is more romantic or logically which has more things to offer :) Pisa or Siena ?

Pisa is not far to go but Sienna is more interesting although much further. Don't rule out Bologna or Lucca though, as they are easy to get to as well.

Hi Jenna!

I would recommend Pisa. I love it!!!
Just take a train from florence to pisa (Italian railways web-site: www.trenitalia.it , english version available). Don't take a taxi...here in Italy they cost way too much!!!

In Pisa you can go to Piazza dei Miracoli (where the leaning tower is) if you want a romantic setting...I would recommend to walk around to breathe the city's athmosphere, though! If you walk along the river and want to see an unusual, "hippie", corner go check out "Piazza delle Erbe". At aperitiv time and after dinner is full of students, both italian and foreigner.

Also check this website,it's powered by Pisa's local government and it's in english too: http://www.pisaturismo.it/site/home_en.asp

Welcome in Italy!

and I loved Lucca. I think taking a stroll around the intact city walls would be very romantic.

There are many people who will tell you that Pisa isn't really worth visiting, but I must say that I disagree. Pisa is a lovely little city and the Field of Miracles is so clean and neat it is really surprising. Siena is also a great place to visit, It has wonderful churches and a fabulous square where they hold the famous horse race each year. Are you sure you haven't the time to see both?

Of the two, I would choose Siena. It's closer for one thing. I have been to both and I must have missed what others love about Pisa because other than the tower and the airport, I didn't see much that appealed to me.

I also love love love Bologna and it too is only an hour from Florence by train.

If you do go to Siena, take the bus which you can get at the bus station across from the train station. Be sure to take the Rapido or it will take you forever to get there.

Travel Tips for Florence

Jewellery on the Ponte Vecchio

by GUYON

look at the jewellery sold by the shops of the Ponte Vecchio.
It is beautiful and seems cheap because gold is inexpensive in Italy but you can find cheaper elsewhere in Florence. Pay attention to your bag or your purse : the pickpockets are always there.

The parade

by kenadams

This isn't exactly off the beaten path. It is actually in the city center, but it only happens once a year: on June 24th, Florence tributes it's patron Saint Giovanni.
The parade is great and, since every store and museum will be closed, it is also your only chance to do something in the city.
See my best pictures of the parade in my travelogues.

wooden toys and Pinoccios of all sizes

by sphynxxs about Bartolucci

A small shop - at least it looks small as so many people try to move around in it - filled with the scent of pine wood. you will find all kind of toys and carved articles, from the huge "oldtimer" car to some tiny decoration and articles for children of all ages, all of them wooden, of course you might be tempted to get one of the pinoccios they sell in all sizes at Bartoluccis - though they come cheaper with the street vendors or souvenir shops, but if you are for old-fashioned toys with an "ecologic" touch, this should be the place for you

Taking the train to Florence...

by worldkiwi

Taking the train to Florence is nice, but the location of the train station is the big plus factor for people who travel this way. The station is very well located and it's an easy flat walk to areas where cheapish accommodation can be found.

My new favorite restaurant in Firenze

by Steve413 about Osteria Del Cinghiale Bianco

This great Osteria in the Oltrarno is loaded with great ambience, excellent service and some of the best food I've eaten in Florence.
Fresh, fresh and fresh are what comes to mind after eating here. Everything was outstanding and the deserts were brilliant.
