Apartment in the center of Pisa
Francesca house is a comfortable apartment in the center of Pisa, in the pedestrian area of the historic center of the city (in a restricted traffic area), in the Santa Maria district, less than 300 m. from the famous Piazza dei Miracoli and the Leaning Tower.
The Santa Maria district is one of the most characteristic of Pisa, where the most beautiful squares and churches of the city are located. This neighborhood is also the beating heart of the University of Pisa and some of the Italian schools of excellence such as the Scuola Normale Superiore and the Scuola Sant’Anna. The area, although quiet and peaceful, is located a few tens of meters from restaurants and clubs renowned for their food and wine specialties. You can find cheap places to have a quick lunch or a pizza in the company of friends, but also established restaurants where you can taste the typical dishes of the Pisan cuisine.
Francesca house is recommended for those who travel by public transport, being easily accessible by train from Pisa Centrale and Pisa-San Rossore stations, from the bus station and from Galilei airport. It is particularly suitable for those who wish to have a comfortable base of support within the city, to move around by bus, on foot or by bicycle (the municipal administration has set up a convenient bike-sharing service, called “Cyclops” , located in various parts of the city).
In addition to the beauties of the city of Pisa, its historical, artistic and cultural places, for which perhaps a whole week’s stay would not be sufficient, the other tourist destinations preferred by our guests, easily reached by public transport, are the cities of art such as Florence, just under 1 hour away by train, Lucca, also reachable by train or bus, Siena, a little more distant than the others but also reachable by train, and the seaside resorts of coast including Marina di Pisa and Tirrenia, connected by various bus lines, Viareggio and Forte dei Marmi, which can also be reached easily by train.
