Pisa was a pit. Beggars, bums, and people shoving trinkets in your face for as far as you can see. A strong smell of urine and bodily odor smack you right in the face. Oh and run down, covered in graffiti, scary. There is only one thing to do in Pisa. Once you leave the train station turn right and... More

A fellow traveler in a tour group I was with said "don't bother with Pisa, the tower is all there is". The tour group had a day in Lucca during a 5 night stay in Genoa (this was a 28 member company ski club with 5 nights in Genoa after a 6 night stay for skiing in Zermatt). I biked... More

We took the bus from Lucca to Pisa. Upon arrival in Pisa we were blown away by the spectacle. No photo can compare to seeing the entire complex in person. The dazzling white of the stone against the incredible blue sky! Even with loads of people it is an incredible site

We took the train to Pisa from the ship, a short ride for 2 euros. We walked down the main street to the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Duomo. Clean and well landscaped. No line to walk up the tower. We ate our lunch there, watching the tourist trying to straighten the tower in a picture. Then strolled back... More

A visit to Pisa and the iconic leaning tower will not dissapoint. Feel disoriantated as you climb the beatiful tower but check your bags into the luggage room first as they do not tell you "no bags" untill the last minute.

It's really easy to walk around Pisa and you will see much and experience more of the Italian culture. We took the train to Pisa and walked to the Tower, cathedral and baptistery area. It took approximately 30 minutes. We were able to look at and appreciate the Arno River on the way, we found a small pizzeria for lunch... More

We had a most delightful surprise when we continued strolling down the bank of the river past the tiny church where there is said to be a thorn from Christ's crown of thorns. Having been disappointed to find this closed, we found a small sign indicating a boat trip on the river itself, and a tiny jetty. I have not... More

This is my second time to Pisa, and in 23 years they didn't learn. We went to the famous leaning tower for my son who wasn't on our first trip. I don't know what is wrong with this town, but it stands out against all other Italian cities. The cathedral is free but you need to walk across the square... More

Its a great city on the river, take some time to explore it and don't only go to see the tower. There's great architecture and views. Its on the Arno, like Florence and is great to walk around.
