How to get from Pisa train station to leaning tower of Pisa? We will be coming by train from Florence.
Pisa has more train stations.
The one nearest the leaning tower is called Pisa San Rossore (10 minutes walking).
The other is called Pisa Centrale. From there take a bus to leaning tower (the red bus line, LAM Rosso). Buy tickets (return ?) in the tobacco shop in the train station.Edited: 4:56 pm, February 11, 2013
Or simply walk, it's only a tad over a mile from Pisa Centrale to the Piazza dei Miracoli.
f you choose to walk from Pisa Central to the Piazza del Duomo the best route is: Follow Corso Italia, cross the river, and follow the Borgo Stretto to the Leaning Tower area. All in all half an hour through the most beautiful part of Pisa, including the river, and the pedestrian streets. Maybe a short stop in Piazza dei Cavalieri which is after crossing the river. Recommended.
Does Pisa have frequent signs from the train stations to the Leaning Tower area? I would prefer to walk, but do not want to get lost nor hassle with a map.

Really it is easy to walk, just follow the route suggested in #3. We arrived at Pisa Centrale, headed to the tourist info just near the station and got a map. We were given a fast, easy route to the Tower, and a lovely route back through the prettier areas. It was all very easy. We went for the Tower, which was great, but ended up staying the whole day in Pisa. It was fun!
Hi FriendlyReply -
Thanks for your quick response. I've looked closely at Google Maps. As I read the map, the street named Corso Italiano does not depart from the train station plaza but from Piazza Vittorio Emmanuale a few blocks away. The Borgo Stretto also changes names along the way to the Leaning Tower. The route is not hard, but I wondered if there were signs directing tourists to use this route. Thank you.
Thank you all for the great information.
Does anyone know if Pisa Centrale has lockers for part of the day?
We will be coming by train from Lucca with our luggage, and will not stay overnight, hence no hotel. After few hours exploring Pisa we will continue by train to the 5 Terre.
There are no luggage lockers at any train station in Italy, for security reasons.
There is a staffed luggage storage room at Pisa Centrale.
Thanks Sydneynick. Anything I need to know about the luggage storage room at Pisa Centrale, like hours of operation, prices, is it easy to find?
