PISA - PUBLIC TRANSPORT TO/FROM BUS/TRAIN STATION

by lucycitygirl

I have another question on Pisa if anyone would be kind enough to answer it.

Which method of transport from Florence to Pisa (bus or train) would leave me nearest to the Leaning Tower?

Are the bus and the train stations in the same place (like many cities) or are they in different areas of Pisa?

Is there a regular bus service from Pisa bus or train station, to the Piazza de Miracoil?

How often does the bus go and return to Pisa Airport.

Thanks again

Lucy

Hi

Some info here - http://www.opapisa.it/index.php?id=221&L=1&T=2. By the way apparently it is strongly suggested you pre book tickets for the Tower which you can do on that official site.

I stayed in Florence in 2005. I recall hopping a train to Pisa, getting there within an hour, and taking a 10 minute cab ride to the Tower. Afterwards, I took a leisurely walk back to the station along the moonlit Arno. Of course, I had no interest in climbing its stairs; I merely wanted my tourist photo.

1. Which method leaves you closest to the Tower?
The closest is the train, that takes you through Pisa Centrale and on to Pisa San Rossore, which is a commuter station a few hundred maters west of the Piazza dei Miracoli. However, as a commuter station, there are fewer trains to here from Florence.
The second closest is the train to Pisa Centrale; to walk from the station to Piazza is about 30 minutes or less, a bus would be 15 minutes or less depending on the route, and the taxi would be, as noted, 10 minutes or less. I walked it myself, sightseeing on the way. This is how most people get here.

2. Are the bus and train together. Hmpf, I suppose so (there are certainly city buses at the main train station), but since the train is so regular and reliable, I don't see any reason to take the bus.

3. Yes, there is regular city bus service from the Station to the Piazza. It's the "Red" Line. See http://www.cpt.pisa.it/orare/pisa/linea1.htm for the schedule (click on each stop to see the times that the bus stops there. You'll want "Stazione FS" which is Pisa Centrale, and "Torre" which is the Tower. Simply put, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., there is service 4 to 6 times an hour, with lesser service outside that window.

4. The same bus goes out to the airport - see "Aeroporto"
If you can deal with the Italian-only website, see http://www.cpt.pisa.it/orare/urbano.htm and note that bus route 21 runs night service from the airport to the main train station to the Duomo.
P.S. the airport is close into town from Pisa Centrale; a taxi won't kill you, and you may find the train convenient, as there is a train station at the airport...

Travel Tips for Pisa

This goes without saying...I'm...

by Jacksprat

This goes without saying...I'm not going to make you feel stupid by actually listing the major attraction. Feeling really stupid (trying to take a photo of me holding up the tower) while all the other tourists walked past with a strang expression on their face....secretly wishing they were brave enough to do it themselves.

Pisa Tip

by travelmad478

Pisa, like Florence, is located along the Arno river. It has a few less bridges than Florence, but the ones that are there are nice to look at anyway. Take a walk along the embankment and into the city center.

Tuscany

by sim1


Pisa is located in the beautiful region of Tuscany. This part of Italy combines wonderful hilly landscapes with picturesque historic villages, often located on some idyllic hilltop.Of course some Tuscany also has some delicious food and wine to offer. No wonder that this region is so popular. And that is actually its main disadvantages. The region is not 'unspoiled' anymore and during high season it can be very busy. But having said that, it is and will be a lovely spot to visit.

Here are some places I've visited over the years in Tuscany and might give you some suggestions for yourself when visiting this part of Italy:

Arezzo
Borgo a Mozzano
Montalcino
Monte Argentario
Montepulciano
Monteriggioni
Pisa
Pitigliano
San Gimignano
Saturnia
Siena
Sovana

You can read more about all these places on my Tuscany page

More than one tower

by toonsarah

While Pisa is so famous for its Leaning Tower, not everyone realises that it was, and to some extent still is, a city of towers. In medieval times, a tower house was the usual choice of edifice, and according to the Rabbi Benjamin of Jona from Tuleda in 1159 there were nearly ten thousand towers in this town. And while many of these have long since gone, plenty still remain. My main photo shows one in the Piazza Daneti, nowadays used rather prosaically as a bank (the Cassa di Risparmio), and photo 2 a glimpse of another tower seen from the banks of the Arno. While these are not exactly “off the beaten path” I place this tip here as these towers are relatively little known and are overshadowed by their less upright neighbour.

Expositions in the Santa Maria della Spina

by filipdebont

The Chapel Santa Maria della Spina which is located near the Arno River is used for temporary expositions.

When I visited this beautiful Chapel there was an exposition of Angelo Barbaro named Ulixes.

In the middle of the Chapel there was a Christ figure walking over a bleu lake, it looked very special.

Anyway this Chapel is a very good location for small expositions.
