Taxis near the Tower?

Visting the tower in August and was wondering if there were taxis waiting in the area. or how I would get back to train station.

also for the baptistery and Duomo do you need tickets, and if you do can you get them there or should you pre book.

sorry if these are silly questions

thank you

hi belinda!!

not so many taxis near the tower,but you mau catch a bus to train station, or directly go on foot to second station (pisa san rossore), closer the tower. for the duomo and baptistery, you may buy ticket in the same place where you buy the tower tiket, so i mean you may also prebook it (but don'y know)...

have fun in pisa!!

cheers

Yes, you can catch a bus in Piazza Manin (just outside the "Field of Miracles" on the baptistery side of the square). You'll also see a taxi stand there but technically you have to phone a taxi in to that stop (Tel. +39 050541600, and say "Piazza Manin"). The bus stop is right on Via Bonanno Pisano, you'll see it in front of the palazzo at no. 113 (for going in the direction of the train station). You can buy a ticket at the kiosk in the Piazza.

You can buy your tickets for the Duomo and baptistery when you arrive at the ticket office to the right of the Duomo's facade.

Belinda im in Pisa at the moment..(courtesy of the volcanoe) and from the tower to Pisa Centrale (the main train station) is less than a ten minute walk. If you not pulling bags etc Id walk it..its flat and straight forward.

Stand so that the field is behind you and the tower to your left. Take the road on your right and just follow if until you come to the arno. Turn left, go over the first bridge you come you, cross it, and then go straight, you will walk straight in to Pisa Centrale

Hope this gives you anothere option
