Pisa at night

by stiepelarne

As our flight departs at about 6.30 a.m. (Wednesday morning), we originally wanted to stay at the airport overnight in order to catch the flight.
just read, that the airport of Pisa closes overnight.
Are there any bars in Pisa opening up to 4-5 a.m. in the morning?
Any other idea to stay during the night?
Thanks for answer!

Most bars in Italy open around 5.30 / 6 am. What people generally do when going out late is to find the backdoor of a bakery and get fresh pastries or bread from the baker.

As for places to stay, I am sure you have already googled extensively. Here is a page with listings in Pisa. The Hotel Bologna has a shuttle bus service to the airport and provides a flying breakfast.

you mean, they open at 5.30 / 6 P.M. (!!), do you?
I look for a place, where I can stay for some hours after midnight, in oder to get to the airport at 5 o´clock in the morning.

No, I mean a.m. As many Italians have breakfast in those bars, they open very early to cater to the first workers going to their jobs.

Sorry, I just re-read your question and saw I misunderstood it.

Wednesday is not one of the best days in the weeks for bars & pubs & discos. Here are some ideas from the website for nightlife in Italy

Look for "Discoteche" or "Discobar", click on the picture icon and then scroll down. Here you get information about when and how long they are open and what is featured.

Travel Tips for Pisa

A lot of sights to see in Pisa

by globetrott

There is a lot to see in Pisa and some great sights are overseen easily .
Therefore I adapted this map for your orientation :

The very first place , that you should head to is the Ticket-office, with a red dot on my map in order to buy the tickets for ALL sights on Piazza dei Miracoli !!!

1 Batistero
2 Duomo
3 Campanile / The leaning tower
4 Museo dell Opera del Duomo
5 Camposanto
6 the medieval townwall of Pisa
7 Museo delle Sinopie

8 Palazzo dei Cavalieri What a pity, I missed Palazzo dei Cavalieri , whenever I was in Pisa ( 3 times so far )
;-((

It is just about 300 meters from the Museo dell Opera del Duomo

Obviously, the only things...

by Bec

Obviously, the only things worthwhile seeing are the Leaning Tower of Pisa (which you can no longer climb unfortunately) and the basilica next door. Climbing the Leaning Tower back in 1989 - as I walked up, it really felt so strange. Like there was something wrong with my balance (and no, I hadn't been drinking!) and it was quite an effort to get up the spiral stairs without feeling dizzy.

The Duomo --> Chathedral Pulpit

by KiNyA

Uhm, I'm affraid it can't be seen in the picture. But it's behind us! Bad light => No Cathedral pulpit in the picture :-)

Anyways, the carved supports for Giovanni Pisano's pulpit symbolize the Arts and Virtues.

Last Sunday in June

by keeweechic

Last Sunday in June - 'Gioco del Ponte' (Bridges Game) . This is probably the most important festival in Pisa. It involves Mediaeval costumes, horseback parades and 12 teams of 20 people attempting to push a 7 ton 'trolley' onto the opposite side of the bridge.

Torre Guelfa

by Willettsworld

The tall Guelph tower rises in one of the most scenic areas of Pisa, the Cittadella Vecchia (Old Citadel). Its unique profile has attracted for centuries people visiting the town or simply walking along the Arno.

This part of Pisa, characterised by ancient remains usually ignored, is actually the witness of centuries of history. In fact, at the beginning of the 13th century, after the many and important victories of its fleet over all the Mediterranean Sea, the Republic of Pisa reunited in this place all its busy shipyard activities. The choice fell on the western-most part of the city, near the monastery of San Vito (an important religious institution now completely lost apart from the church of San Vito remodelled many times over the centuries), where harbour structures already existed from the previous century.
