Description

The space

The flat is exactly located in the hystoric centre of Pisa, in the pedestrian area of “Borgo Stretto”, in front of the Central Bridge (“Ponte di Mezzo”) over the Arno river, within the building (hystorical “Palazzo Bocca”) that was the house of Galilei’s family when the famous Galileo was born. The absolutely central location enables you to spend your holidays discovering hystory, traditions, art and food of Pisa, in fact, in a few minutes walk, you can reach the famous “Piazza dei Miracoli” and its monuments, as the Leaning Tower, the Cathedral, the Baptistery, the Old Cemetery, as well as other hystorical and turistic town attractions, such as Cavalieri Square, location of the prestigious “Scuola Normale Superiore” and Cavalieri Church, San Francesco and “Santa Maria della Spina” Churches, the Cittadella Tower, recently opened again, and so on.

The flat has been restructured preserving the original architectural features and is disposed on two different levels, namely a lower floor, containing a wide bathroom, a living room, a kitchen and a little bedroom, and an upper mezzanine floor where the principal bedroom and a little reading area are placed. The architectural structure, measuring almost 70 squared meters, is divided into three rooms, two of which loft featured: wide open spaces are able to accomodate four-five persons.

The neighborhood

The area is full of Bars and Restaurants, and can be noisy at the weekend.

Other things to note

Even the bathtub, very scenic and beautiful, is not suitable for people very elderly or with problems of mobility.

Serena was a great host - she responded quickly and effectively. Despite not being in Pisa, she came up with a quick and easy plan for us to get into the home ourselves. The photos on the website are a little misleading regarding the modernity of the home but it was still completely habitable and well-equipped. Unfortunately, the wifi was working when we arrived and when it did start working it was quite slow. Overall, an okay stay.

Fantastic location. Bed upstairs was very comfortable. The bathtub has an interesting design, but may be hazard to those with mobility issues. Highly recommended place otherwise.

A fantastic apartment full of character, in an area where there is everything you could want. Lovely restaurants, market stalls and stores - this can however make it a bit noisy but not enough to put you off. Serena was really helpful and communicated well. The apartment would not suit everyone due to the accessibility of the bedroom area and the high step into the shower but we absolutely loved it.

The place is right in the heart of medieval Pisa and a 30 second walk from the nightlife center of the city. The apartment was very cool and could not be more well located.

We had a great time in Pisa, and this apartment is lovely. It couldn't be more central, and it's a very quick taxi ride to the train station or the airport. Communication was easy and everything was organised wonderfully. I'd definitely stay here again if I ended up back in Pisa!
