Milan to Pisa

by mohammad58

Hi guys,

We are some students will go to Milan next week, and we planned to go to Pisa also as our back flight id from there. So, would you recommend the cheapest way to go to Pisa from Milan. We prefer to start the trip late at night and get to Pisa in the morning if there are any options.

I just found the "Trenitalia" website and there is an option to catch the 21:10 train and get to Pisa at 02:14 but it costs 32 euro. is there any other options?

Cheers,
Seyed

Go by train.

Italian trains are very reasonably-priced, especially if you use the slightly slower regional trains. ticket machines are easy to use and most have english language options.

As you know, you can find train times, details and fares in English here:

http://www.trenitalia.it/homepage_en.html

you could catch the 22:25 train from Milan, arriving at 04:13 in Pisa (with a change) for 16.80 euro (which is good value for the distance involved).

Italian trains are so well-priced, and there is such an extensive service, that long-distance bus options in Italy are far fewer than you might find elsewhere. I doubt there will be a Milan>Pisa bus service, although I'll do some research......

J, that trip is showing for tomorrow night to be 18.90 euro. What day did you look at?

Anyway, yes, when I was a student, I did silly things like taking very slow regional trains to nowhere and back just to have a place to sleep, but I am thinking that this train (leaving Milan at 22:25 and arriving at Pisa at 04:13 is bad for 2 reasons: (1) you're not getting a lot of uninterrupted sleep because you have a layover in Genova for 1.5 hours, and (2) you're arriving in Pisa at 04:13, so you'll have nothing to do for several hours even after you arrive in Pisa. So, you'll stagger to the Tower at 8 in the morning, cold, hungry, and totally wiped out from lack of sleep...gee, I remember those days ;-)

I know this doesn't fit your requirement for overnight travel, but there are two direct trains that are even cheaper and simpler (because there are no changes or layovers in stations in the middle of the night): (1) dep 06:45 arr 11:47 and (2) dep 18:57 arr 23:34 (note, the second solution does not leave from Milano Centrale but from three other stations around town). Both of these trains are 16.40 euro one way second class.

If you value sleep (even in upright seats) over money, try this:
Depart Milan at 21:15, arrive in Torino at 23:10 - 9.55 euro,
then depart Torino at 23:50, arrive in Pisa at 04:13 - 19.30 euro
for a total fare of 28.85 euro...but note that you get to sleep(?) for 4 hours on the train from Torino rather than just 2.

Basically, because Pisa and Milan are so close together, you have to trade off time and money, because there is no way to get a real overnight ride unless you head someplace else first...

Friday night special?

Re: Milan to Pisa

by mohammad58

We will arrive Milan on Thursday 25th and we planned to go to Pisa on Saturday night 27th and stay there for 3 days.

Re: Milan to Pisa

by leics

Well, you know where to look for train times etc now!

Trenitalia should carry the info for your dates (it does not carry info too far ahead.........60 days, I think) although times and fares don't change much anyway, if at all.

Travel Tips for Pisa

My Ticket Up The Tower !

by coceng

This is my ticket to the top of the Tilted World.
I had to wait for like 3 hours before my turn was granted to climb up the Torre di Pisa.
The ticket says:
My turn was at 5 pm on 14th june 2003.
I could stay up there for about 30 minutes.
The cost of the ticket was/is 15 Euros.
It was worth the wait for me !

Walking to Campo dei Miracoli from train station

by AsterixSg

Invariably, most of the people travel to Pisa by train. Once you get out of the station, walk 50 meters ahead, then turn left and then keep walking straight. That's the general direction that I can give. Its just a 10 minute walk and you will see some interesting sights along the way.

Alternatively, buy a book of Pisa (if you don't already have a travel book) OR but a 2.50 Euros foldable map of Pisa.

Here's a picture of the train station.

The leaning tower

by tompt

The only thing we knew about Pisa before coming here was they had this tower. We soon found out all about it:
They started building the tower in 1173 and when they came to the third floor the tower started to sink away at one end. The builders just went on with their job and in 1350 the 8-storey tower was finished. In 1350 the tower was 1.4 meters of center. In 1817 it was already 3.8 meters. After recent restoration works the 54.5 meter high tower is just over 5 meters of center.

Pisa Vini

by alemir82

The exhibition, which is held in the Convent of Santa Croce is dedicated to the production of white and red wines from the province of Pisa. A rich and complete exhibition on local wine production and everything it entails: tastings, accompaniment with traditional cuisine and the promotion of Pisan gourmet products.

Last weekend of November.

Magnificent decorations

by filipdebont

In the past this Chapel was located near the mouth of the Arno River. But due to several floodings the entire Chapel was moved to its present location.

It was built in 1230, and restored several times.

It is really worth to walk around this Chapel in order to admire the very rich Gothic decorations.

It almost looks as they exaggerated, as there are so many pinnacles, canopies and statues on this Chapel.

Anyway it looks just great.
