This was a lovely place that would be ideal for a couple. We had everything that we needed, though it was a squeeze for four girls when the sofa bed was out. The only other thing that let it down was the WiFi connection, it was very temperamental . Having said that, within a day or two of staying here we had already got used to the surrounding locality, it was in a good location for travelling to other parts of Italy and just generally getting about . There was an abundance of shops, restaurants and bars around which was perfect in the evenings. They host was good at communicating via email but again this was dependant on our WiFi connection. Overall, pleased with our stay and visit.
What a wonderful little apartment! Everything you need for a break in lively and beautiful Pisa. Very well equipped and comfortable, and the master bedroom is just gorgeous! Giovanni the landlord was very welcoming and helpful, and even booked us a taxi to catch our early flight home! I would highly recommend this property to couples, less sure about families as it would be very cramped! If you're a light sleeper, there is a bit of road noise, but this quietened down after about 11pm and the apartment definitely makes up for it.
The apartment was clean, well equipped kitchen and had a lot of character. The location is only 10 minutes walk over the bridge to the Leaning Tower, 10 minutes walk along the Corso Italia to the train station and a short stroll to good restaurants. Giovanni, the landlord, was excellent and very reliable. He was waiting for us at the apartment after midnight with the keys and gave us a quick tour of the apartment. He also showed us places of interest on a map and gave us a present of Italian biscuits you eat with sweet wine. Finally he booked a very early morning taxi to the airport. We visited both Florence and Lucca by trains that were both great trips. The only thing is if you are very light sleepers you will hear the traffic and people passing the apartment during the night. However this did not spoil a very enjoyable 4 night break in vibrant Pisa. According to my husband’s fitbit we manage to walk over 17,000 steps in Pisa so we were ready for lots of pizza, pasta, panini and wine!
Giovanni was a great host and helped with parking and took us on a tour of the neighborhood. Everything is easily accessible from the apartment by taking any number of beautiful walks throughout Pisa. Good restaurants nearby, and a joy to walk along the Arno to get to any of the bridges. Apartment is completely fully equipped and we had our breakfast there every day.

We stayed for 4 nights. It is in a great location next to the river - a short walk to the town centre and a 10 min walk to the leaning tower. Also a 10 min walk to the train station so perfect for day trips and onward travel. The apartment was gorgeous, we loved it. Clean, very cosy and queit. We would definitely stay again if visiting Pisa. Giovanni met us and was very helpful and our deposit was refunded on time. All in all a great stay.
