About the property

Behind the Tower offers a great opportunity to experience life in one of the most famous cities in the world, home to a very popular and prestigious University.

The apartment is located right "behind the Tower": the top of the Leaning Tower and the Baptistery are visible from the bedroom windows.

Behind the Tower is right in the city centre of Pisa, and it is easily reachable by bus or by walking from the central Train Station.

This makes it an ideal location for people wanting to take a short break in Tuscany: several low-cost airlines fly to Pisa for very little money.

The apartment is composed of a double bedroom, a bathroom with shower and a fully-equipped kitchen provided with washing-machine.

Pisa is a city of incredible beauty.

It is very famous for the Piazza dei Miracoli, with the Leaning Tower, the Cathedral, the Baptstery and the Monumental Cemetery.

Pisa is much more than that, though. It is a town whose origins date back to the Etruscan era.

It was already very lively in the Roman times, and it hosts one of the most important museums dedicated to the maritime activity since those times. 3 Roman ships have been found, perfectly preserved, in the ancient port area and are now the heart of a permanent exhibition at a new museum.

Moreover, Pisa has a wonderful Medieval area, the market area, where you can shop at the colourful and noisy fruit and vegetable market in the morning, dine at the restaurants and caffés and enjoy a drink at the many bars and clubs in the evening.

  • 5 of 5

"The apartment is very nice, comfortable and full equiped (excepting TV). We have found all perfectly disposed in order to facilitate our stay.

The location is a noisy traffic area, with a lot of circulation. In every way, closing windows, it''s possible to rest adequately. In the other part, it has many advantages: The communication by car is perfect (we went to Livorno, Viareggio, San Gimiggiano, ....), it is very near to the center of Pisa, Campo dei Miracoli...

If we return to Pisa, we''ll return to this home!

Muy agradecida a MARCEL

  • 5 of 5

Todo muy correcto, incluso con detalles y consejos de buenos restaurantes fuera del ámbito turístico, La casa es cómoda y acogedora, limpia, luminosa, el placer más grande pasar todos los días por la piazza Miraccoli para llegar a la casa. Vamos que le dábamos las buenas noches a la torre todos los días y a las horas de vuelta no había nadie, otro placer!!

Marcel nos recogió en el aeropuerto sin coste añadido, fue un detallazo.

También está provista de café, azúcar, aceite, etc de lo que vamos quedando los inquilinos agradece este pequeño reciclaje.

"Bonjour, nous avons ce charmant petit appartement dans Pise en Toscane pour nos vacances cet été.

Situé sur un axe routier bruyant, il n''en reste pas moins très bien situé à deux pas de la fameuse tour de Pise. Il y a un supermarché juste à côté, etc.

L''accueil des propriétaires et la communication au préalable sont très biens, fort sympathique.

Les équipements du logement sont plus que convenables, il y a tout ce qu''il faut pour le confort du séjour.

Nous vous souhaitons bon voyage si vous tentez l''aventure dans une très belle ville et région"

"l'appartement est irréprochable, il y a tout ce qu'il faut. son emplacement à côté de la tour est vraiment appréciable. les propriétaires sont très gentils et leur accueil à l'aéroport est un plus non négligeable. seul bémol, le bruit de la circulation : l'appartement se trouve au dessus d'une entrée/sortie de route très fréquentée. à recommander tout de même, excellent séjour."
