Pisa is a small city with lots of history but you need to walk it in order to appreciate it. My wife and I have been to Pisa twice and each time we go we find new things to see and do. The airport and train station are very near the city if you have rent a car you have multiple cities cities very near Pisa that you can go and come back within the day. You have Livorno, Populonia, Toscany last, Florence Lucca, Sienna, Montalcino and others all of them Medieval with lot to see and good food. If you don't have a car the trains go to must f the cities are often and cheap you can reach Florence in 50 minutes, Lucca in 20 minutes you can move without a car. In Pisa the way to go is walking, the Leaning Tower, Cathedral and Baptistery are all together, the main street going to and out of the Plaza di Duomo is full of restaurants and shops you also have a large hotel near the Tower. around the river you also have many restaurants and shops once you cross the Di Mezzo bridge in front of the Plaza Garibaldi you go into a main street which has main large stores and straight ahead very near you will find the train station. You won't need a taxi or car inside Pisa you will enjoy the city much more by just walking and exploring all those narrow little streets and alleyways.

I really wanted to like Pisa, but sadly apart from the tower there is little to redeem it. The walk from the station is not clearly marked (we used iPhone) & not particularly pretty either.

After seeing tower we decided to walk around city. After seeing a horse carriage my grand children insisted to travel in it. The city is beautiful nice old cathedrals, historical monuments and narrow streets, river flowing in the centre of town and lot of restaurants.

On Piazza XX Settembre you are before the nice Tower , and the splendid Dome ; better you start your vist early in the morning, this place is plenty of tourists.Walking in Pisa is very nice, but also the old town of Pisa can be visit, sometimes everybody forget the old town, anf visit only the tower.

Docked at Livorno and took shuttle bus to Plazza. Called into tourist information and got directions for local bus to train station. Luckily we met a lovely english girl in the queue and she was so helpful, telling us how much the fare was to the train station and showing us how to insert the purchased tickets into the machine on the bus. At the train station she helped us order our return tickets to Pisa and showed us the correct platform! The journey took about twenty minutes and from the station we walked through the lovely town to the Leaning Tower which took about fifteen minutes.
Had visited once before when we holidayed in Scarperia and we still enjoyed seeing the Tower, the Baptistrey and the Cathredal - amazing that these beautiful buildings are at the end of an ordinary street. Had Pizza and wine in an outdoor cafe on the way back to the train station.
