Rome to Pisa - A Day Trip

Guest Author

Here is a complete itinerary of our day trip from Rome to Pisa:



































































8:00 amCourtesy Shuttle from Melia Roma

Hotel to Ottaviano Metro Station
8:30 amArrive at Ottaviano Station (identified by red M in a

white square)
8:45 amMetro Train from Ottaviano to

Terminal Station (Stazione Termini)
8:55amArrive at Terminal Station (Metro drops underground, go

above the ground, purchase tickets from the counter, check the train

number at Departure screens and Wait at the terminal)
9:45amTrain departs to Pisa (Inter City

Plus)
12:57pmArrive at Pisa
1:05pmOut of the Station and Start walking

towards the Tower of Pisa (Plan for 25 minutes walk, Take Via

Francesco Crispi
and Via Roma and there is no need to buy a

city map :)
1:30pmArrive at Leaning Tower of Pisa (La Torre). The

entrance and climb up the tower is controlled and you can purchase

tickets by the time slot.
2:20pmStart walking back to the Station
2:45pmArrive at the Station (There is McDonalds at the

station for a quick lunch or a better variety at Terminal Station)
3:00pmBuy the return tickets (A better

option is to buy return tickets from the original destination or from

the Station at Pisa before starting out to visit the monuments. This

will ensure a confirmed seat because the station stops selling tickets

few minutes before the scheduled departure.)
3:45pmTrain departs to Rome
7:30pmArrive at San Pietro Station
7:55pmWalk to Ottaviano Metro Station
8:30pmBus from Metro Station to Hotel
9:00pmArrive at the Hotel

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is the main attraction of this city. The streets
were pretty deserted (may be because of Sunday) and it almost felt that the
majority of people moving around were tourists. You can always spend extra time
in the city or at the festive environment around the monuments. This allows you
to take the 5:00pm Inter City Plus to reach back Rome around 8:15pm. As always,
it's recommended to check the train schedule at Trenitalia.com.

    dear mr arun gupta

    can you tell me....how much is the train ticket from pisa to rome???....is there any other way or kind of transport from pisa to rome???


  • Arun Gupta Monday, January 7, 2008

    The train ticket cost can be foundfrom:

    http://orario.trenitalia.com/b2c/TimeTable?stazin=Rome&stazout=Pisa+Centrale&datag=14&datam=01&dataa=2008&timsh=08&timsm=09&x=21&y=11&lang=en&nreq=5&channel=tcom

    or you can alter your travel dates. For example a train starting from Rome @ 8:30am and arriving Pisa @ 11:31am costs 41.50 euros for 2nd class and 59.40 euros for first class. If you choose InterCity plus (start @ 9:46, arrive @ 12:57pm - faster & less travel time) then the standard rate is 27.50 euros. Look around the website for different options and then price your option. Good luck!

  • Prantik Thursday, April 2, 2009

    Can I purchase these tickets using credit card at the counters?. is it suggested to crry cash or having an international cc in Rome is good enough for expenses


  • prantik Thursday, April 2, 2009

    Our friends are suggesting us to buy eurail pass. Whats yr suggestion. Will this pass hold good for any train travel in the selected countries independent of the company operating the service?


  • Arun Gupta Thursday, April 2, 2009

    I purchased the tickets using Amex credit card on the counter. You need to investigate eurail pass depending upon your travel requirements.

    My daughter, son-in-law and their 12 year old and 8 year old children will be traveling to Rome in August and would like to visit Pisa. What is best way to get to the area where the monuments are from Pisa station other than by walking?

    Thanks
