About This Listing
A well furnished and organized ground floor small flat located in a quiet zone right next to the commercial and pedestrian side of town, ideal for who's coming to town by train or airplane
Nice cozy ground floor apartment, 45 square meters with a double bedroom, bathroom, kitchen/living room with a one-and-a-half sofa bed and a small court.
It is located very close to central train station (about 300m) and airport (1,5km), in an alley near Corso Italia, the pedestrian and commercial side of town. Close-by you will find Keith Haring's magnificent mural "Tuttomondo" on one side of Sant'Antonio Abate Church.
Pisa is a very small town, and everything is at foot range: shops, bars, pubs, a supermarket, and then of course historical buildings and plazas.. it only takes 10-15 minutes to walk to the Tower.
Being in a central area, the house rests inside a "limited traffic zone" (ZTL, Zona a Traffico Limitato): there is plenty of (payable) car parking around, although it is possible to purchase a daily permit at some offices nearby. Anyways, the house is only 50m away from a non-limited traffic route.
Feel free to ask for any information anytime! I will gladly enlighten you on which are the best pubs and restaurants to enjoy Pisan nightlife as we locals do. I can also advice you on hiking or historical sites around the region.
Sheets and towels are provided.
Interaction with Guests
I will be most happy to share my knowledge of the city, especially in regards to pubs and restaurants around town; after all, Italy is all about food culture, isn't it? Just Ask!
Being surrounded by very small alleys, and resting in a Limited Traffic Zone, there is virtually no traffic in the very proximity of the house. Walking is encouraged!
The supermarket is just 200m away, open 7:30 - 20:30.
If you wish to go to the seaside (Marina di Vecchiano, Marina di Pisa, Tirrenia), or medieval hamlets (Vicopisano, Lari) there's the central bus station close by. If you wish to go to Lucca, Livorno, Firenze, Cinque Terre or anywhere else there's the train station.
Outstanding B&b! We didn't expect the apartment to be so good!
Every B&b tells you "5 mins from train station" but with Ricardo, that's the most enjoyable 5 mins walk! He introduced the city to us on the way to the B&b and helped us with the luggage!
There is an small kitchen in there but we did not have chance to use it, via Italian are far better cook than we are, so we let the professional chef to take care of our dinner. But it allows more option for our breakfast, including a fresh brew expresso to start the day!
The arrangement to check out is flexible.
Riccardo met us at 12.30 as agreed and settled us in. We were delighted that all the basics were supplied-salt,sugar ,olive oil,etc. The apartment was great-secure ,quiet,and with a great private courtyard. The location was super-we were 7 minutes from the train station,4 from the bus,in a quiet street,near all shops. We were very happy .
Ricardo came and met us outside the apartment, even though our flight was running rather late. He was an excellent host throughout our week-long stay and we recommend his apartment highly.
The apartment comes with everything you will need, plus some unexpected added extras (shampoo, washing powder, etc.). We enjoyed 7 very peaceful nights in this relaxing Pisan retreat.
The apartment is close to the bus station and rail station, and a stone's throw from the shops and bars. The tower and duomo are about a 15 minute stroll through the Main Street of Pisa.
We recommend excursions to Marina di Pisa (by bus), Florence (we went twice!), and Lucca was an unexpected treat. The highlight was the Cinque Terre (take the train to La Spezia and hop on/off or walk if you have the stamina!). Pisa is itself a very charming city with great restaurants and bars (the rum bar was especially good). Beware of pickpockets and Mosquitos!!
Thanks to Riccardo for letting us stay in his great little apartment.
Merci Ricardo pour le bon accueil et cet appartement très confortable, correspondant bien avec le descriptif et les photos. Merci aussi pour tout le nécessaire d'accueil : café, sucre, confiture, etc... l'appartement est très bien situé près de la gare, près du centre, de la rue piétonne.... et calme .....
Nous n'avons pas eu du très beau temps lors de notre séjour : pluie, pas très chaud et il ne faisait pas très chaud dans l'appartement (en Belgique nous sommes habitués au chauffage dès que la température baisse) seul problème : le frigidaire qui n'était pas assez froid, nous avons du le mettre aux maximum et l'eau de dégel se mettait sur les aliments : ceci est à corriger ! (nous ne l'avons pas signalé à Ricardo) Notre séjour était SUPER !!!!
Merci à Airbnb et à Ricardo
Dall'organizzazione dell'AirBnb, ovvero dagli scambi di email di chiarimenti prima dell'arrivo fino al mettersi d'accordo per check-in e check-out: ci siamo trovati molto bene. Riccardo, il host, ci ha informati di tutte le cose da sapere per il nostro alloggio a Pisa.
L'appartamento si trova in una posizione strategica tra il centro storico, la piazza dei miracoli e la stazione fs (per esplorare la Toscana in treno). Il bilocale si trova al piano terra di un vecchio palazzo in un quartiere abitativo - ognitanto si sente l'umidità del suolo pisano (sarà l'Arno?). L'arredamento è molto recente e soggiorno, cucina e lavenderia sono attrezzati bene. C'è puro un terrazzo.
abbiamo alloggiato in casa di Riccardo per 3 notti per motivi di lavoro. l'appartamento è in pieno centro,a 4 minuti camminando da Ponte di Mezzo, a 5 minuti dalla stazione dei treni.
la strada è tranquilla, nessun rumore!
l'appartamento è semplice e funzionale, dotato di tutto per poter cucinare. internet veloce.
Host super disponibile e gentile!

About the Host, Riccardo
I'm an experienced backpacker, and very open minded. I myself have been hosted many times by locals during my journeys, I definitely know what it means, and what a great opportunity it can be.
Aside from traveling I also happen to be a medical doctor.
