Alternatively, take the the city bus number 3 to get to "Piazza della Stazione" (Railway Station square). Buses from railway station to hotels will be published soon.

Recall that in Italy, before getting on the train, you must stamp your ticket by using those small yellow machines available within the station. Buses from railway station to hotels will be published soon.

By Car

Pisa is near the intersection of two highways: A12 north-south (Sestri Levante - Livorno) and A11 east-west (Pisa - Florence). Exit at "Pisa centro" and follow the indications towards the center of the town. Please note that Pisa is a small town with several pedestrian areas. Parking is a bit of a problem and most parking areas are with pay-meters.
