“Location, Location, Location!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

Large campsite with small pitches, no room for an awning if you wanted your car on the pitch. There is artificial shade created with large green sheets tied overhead from poles.

Toilet block was excellent, clean and large.

Swimming pool - not that big bearing in mind the size of the site and you need to wear a swim cap (on sale for 2.50 euros each so buy in the UK if you can).

Evening entertainment for small children.

Obviously the main advantage is the close proximity to the Leaning Tower of Pisa - walk out of the site to the left - through the tunnel and you reach the souvenir stalls (extremely cheap which was quite surprising 1 euro for a Pisa tower key ring etc), walk passed the stalls and you are there - takes about 10 minutes.

Recommend for sight seeing, but not for a relaxing holiday, we had initially booked 6 nights but from reading other reviews reduced this to 3 nights and this was plenty.

This camp site is a great location from the Tower & easy to get too from central train station Large supermarket nearby, pitches were grassy and easy to put pegs into. Facilities were good, nice hot (free) showers. Wi-fi only near lobby for a fee. One annoying factor if your considering using the pool, you are required to wear a bathing cap. Of course they sell them, but if your only passing thru and want a quick dip this is not the best system. But the pool was meticulously clean.

This was the perfect location to just walk straight into the main centre. The camp is very friendly and the pool is perfect. Plenty of things to buy at the shop and a great atmosphere in the camp. The mobile home we had was a bit small but suited our few days stay. If you stay in the summer, bring plenty of insect repellant - they eat you alive here!! Would stay here again for sure.

Okay so this is the second time I have stayed in this camping place. This time I booked a room for two of us and we paid 20 each which...let's be honest... a real bargain. Here's the pluses and minuses.

+Fantastic location, 1000m from the leaning tower and right next to Pam supermarket where you can get Peroni for 69c (2€50 at the hostel shop)
+Cheap rooms
+Quiet place so it's nice to chill with some drinks on the patio
+Included is all pots and pans and even corkscrew!
+Staff friendly!!! And knowledgeable !
+Security guard there all night to keep watch and to phone you a taxi

- In the summer it is bloody boiling!
- Animal bites are an issue...even in April
- It's a long walk to the nightlife.

I liked it, that why I stayed there twice. The showers are hot, it feels like your on holiday in a little holiday camp and there's even a swimming pool. I can't see Butlins being much better than this place!!!

Great location! Just how often can you set up your tent within 1km of the main attraction of an Italian city? And with a Pam supermercati half-way in between?
Huge swimming pool, sheltered/covered tenting sites, and decent shower/washroom facilities. Felt like a nice place to "hang out", but after you've climbed the Leaning Tower - and walked all through the town centre - what is there to do around Pisa? Pity.

This place is also reviewed as the Campeggio Torre Pendente, and has mixed reviews at best!

I stayed here with my son for two nights in April 2009. As reviews state, there is quite a long underpass you must go through to reach the campsite, which is in a slightly industrial part of town.

It is only 800 metres from the Field of Miracles, and the Underpass and general area surrounding the campsite might be unsightly, but it was never dangerous or populated with youths and hooligans. The only people we encountered in the underpass was cyclists passing through rather than taking a busy road.

The campsite itself was clean, had a nice pool (you do need to wear bathing caps for it) and was outstanding value at only €22 per person per night. Accomodation was in the form of a small permanent caravan which offered shower room and WC. There was also a little patio area to the front ... and contrary to earlier reviews, there is AC and mosquito nets on the windows. Rooms were clean too.

There was noise from adjoining caravans, and the walls between them are quite thin, but in fairness ... I have stayed in more expensive hotel accomodation and had more surrounding noise from rooms above me than I have had from the adjoining caravans.

Staff didnt speak lots of English, but enough to exchange pleasantries and serve me in the shop, at reception and in the bar.

Overall, I would rate this as excellent value for money, but would suggest people consider using Pisa as either a) a base for exploring the region or b) just a short term weekend visit. This isnt a slight on the accomodation, but on Pisa itself which is a destination more for day trips rather than long holidays. The Field of Miracles, Piazza Dei Miracolli is awesome...but you can see it all in an afternoon really.

This is a case where we are all in agreement. Very basic, quite cheap. Staff comically unhelpful and unknowledgable.

Good place for quick stop rather than lengthy stay. Bring mosquito repellant. We are not kidding.

There is a dreadful underpass you have to walk through (because there is no bus nearby) HOWEVER rail station is very close and great for Florence, Lucca and all points.

The tower and Campo de Miracoli are great though and make up for it.

  • Liked — cheap
