My wife and I just came back from a short break in Italy and spent a couple of days in Pisa staying at the Victoria. To start with the Hotel is very well located on the banks of the River Arno just opposite the bridge. Either side of the bridge takes you to all the sights,shopping,bars and restaurants. All within ten minutes of walking. Even the Airport is only a ten minute taxi ride !
The hotel itself is obviously very old and has an amazing history to it. Just ask to see the previous guest list !! Its full of charm, grand rooms with high decorated ceilings, antiques and art. We just loved this place! The staff all spoke English and were very helpful. Thank you Mr Piegaja.
If you expect brand new fixtures and fittings and state of the art high-tec gadgets in your room this is not the place for you. If you appreciate history and traditional Italian decor then stay here. We stayed in room 306. Amazing views of the city and river.
