Chiefly identified with its Leaning Tower and its art, Pisa, the capital of the province of Pisa, stretches out from the Arno River in Tuscany until the Ligurian Sea. Should you like to choose Pisa as your holiday destination, I’ll be your guide for what you’ll undoubtedly find to be a genuine journey into knowledge!

Rich in history, PisaPisa boasts about countless architectural gems adorned with intricate decorations, and that is why Pisa is said to be the seat of an Academy of Fine Arts and the University of Pisa – which enjoyed a great reputation during the Renaissance. The well-known Piazza del Duomo is in the northwestern part of the city where you’ll find The Baptistery, a circular church building used for baptisms; a Cathedral and a marble bell tower, known as the Leaning Tower of Pisa. It is thought that in the Cathedral the astronomer Galilei first made the observation that later became known as the principle of the motion of a pendulum. Despite the considerable damage that the city suffered during World War II, its art treasures are still magnets for a great number of sightseers from all the corners of the world.

Apart from being mainly a cultural centre, Pisa is also concerned with providing the best living conditions to its residents, the majority of which are engaged in farming because Pisa is located in the rich Arno River delta. The financial means gathered from commerce and industries have enabled the authorities to make significant investments in tourism so that the number of modern hotels or fancy tourist attractions has been increasing for the past years.

Accordingly, whether you want a hotel that be in easy reach or one that be located in a fast urban development city area, the wide range of hotels provided in Pisa manages to live up to the expectations raised either by business travelers or by picky pleasure tourists. And should you choose a hotel that is in easy reach of the airport, you can choose from My One Hotel Galilei, a brand new hotel, situated very close to Pisa International Airport, or from Accademia Palace Hotel or Hotel Terminus & Plaza which are modern and very convenient locations for both the airport and the train station.

You should not be amazed to find that while preserving its cultural assets, Pisa has managed to develop a very efficient transportation network, so that, unexpectedly as it may seem, you will not need a horse and a carriage to take you from one place to another, unless they are the power horses of your car, which you have just rented. Don’t worry about forgetting to buy a map because getting lost is just about impossible. However, if you don’t like to travel on your own and you’re thinking of joining a tourist group, then, my friend, you should let it to the bus driver take you around Pisa in exchange for the ticket fee. And if you want to see more than what Pisa has to offer, there are always intercity buses that depart from the main bus station in Piazza St Antonio and are sure to take you wherever you want to get.

In case you were wondering how to get here, know that there is an International Airport, named after Galileo Galilei, the famous physicist and, in its close vicinity there is Pisa Aeroporto, a train station that connects the central railway station, Pisa Centrale, to the airport. Once you set foot on the platform of the central railway station, it is practically impossible to get lost because Pisa Centrale functions like a railway nucleus that links Pisa with a number of significant Italian cities such as Rome, Genoa, Naples, or Florence. My last advice to you?! "Go, explore and enjoy!"
