    DO NOT forget to validate your ticket in one of the ticket validation machines on the platform.
    Located on the outskirts of Pisa (20-30 mins walk to Leaning Tower of Pisa) this station is perfectly situated. We stayed about 250m away which was extremely convenient during our 3-day visit to this area of Italy. 1 hr. to Florence / 20 mins to Viareggio and its beautiful beaches. Pisa Centrale station has everything you need, coffee shops, ticket machines and staffed ticket booths with very helpful staff. Announcements are in Italian however the screens are easy to follow in English. TOP TIP - If you are purchasing a physical paper ticket from a machine or a ticket booth (and not online from the TrenItalia App / website) then once you have purchased your ticket and get to the platform DO NOT forget to validate your ticket in one of the ticket validation machines on the platform, once validated your ticket is good for 4 hours. If you don't you will be fined.

    Watch out pickpockets
    I traveled to/frm Pisa Airport in the afternoon. Quite a few pickpockets hanging around the station. Watch out your belongings even large suitcases. People were also cycling inside the station so be careful. Wish there were more cafes or convenient stores here. Small station with 16 Platforms. Pisa Mover is near Platform 13-14. About 25 minute walk to Leaning Tower of Pisa or less than 10 minute taxi.

    Originally constructed in 1871
    We visited The Leaning Tower of Pisa by getting a train from Florence to Pisa Centrale and then a bus to the Towere. Pisa Centrale station was constructed in 1871 and is a quite plain and not spectacular building. The station was severely damaged during World War II and rreconstruction resulted in some changes to the original design.

    Well done pisa public transport
    We found pisa central to be an excellent place to travel to and from all the places that we wanted to visit. Very central in Pisa. If we couldn’t buy our tickets from the machines we went to the service desk to buy our tickets , the people there could not be any more helpful to us, giving us the best deal when thry could , and the best days for our trips saving us money by doing so and helping us out by giving us lots of information about where we were going , where to get off and how to get there, also to look out for the platform to go on and to be careful, the guy that sold us our Tickets on a couple of occasions was very very helpful .. Unfortunately can’t remember his name. I know he wore black rimmed glasses and was very pleasant… I think the train service is very good with over 185 trains a day commuting from Pisa. Well done.

Unlucky for us the train strike was on so getting a train from Florance the only one in 4hrs we were grateful either way.
When we arrived at Pisa I expected a modern station considering all the tourist that flock the leaning tower of Pisa. Nope quite run down.
Steps every where limited lifts.
Then when I walked out to my right was a group of about 30 African American men starring so immediately I was intimidated and thought I’m getting jumped. Lack of security and police.
The men were harmless but the big congregation just was intimidating.

Ok station to connect to livirno port or inland to Florence. Regular good train service on large clean trains. Station has tickets machines and a mc Donald’s. Easy to get buses and taxis as the tank is right outside. A taxi to main square 20 euros. Felt safe and cleanish. As with any station in a city just keep cases and bags close and try not too show expensive phone and stuff to look like a target. Just be sensible.

If travelling to Pisa by bus make sure you give the driver your ticket to validate, we thought we’d scanned our ticket, but hadn’t and got fined €60 each. We then sat at entrance to Pisa and watched loads of tourists getting fined the same, it’s a bit like a scam.

Nice little station, with a McDonald's and 2 tabacchi stores where you can get bus tickets. It is at the end of the street corso Italia that leads to the Ponte di Mezzo bridge. We arrived in the afternoon, and we didn't feel this station unsafe, but keep an eye on your belongings like other reviewers mentioned.
