Budget airlines is a wonderful way to have short holidays or extended weekends somewhere interesting. The carrier Norwegian has flights from Copenhagen to Pisa and we went to explore Pisa a few days saying at the Grand Hotel Bonanno.
- Getting to town…
- If you fly into Pisa Airport taking the train to Pisa Centrale is cheap and easy. It takes less than 15 minutes.

- Exploring the city
- Walking around in town is easy and the distances are fairly short between interesting sights.
- Many hotels offers bikes, and while the pavement is bumpy it shouldn’t be a problem.
- Skip driving in town – the streest are narrow, there are many one-way streets and finding your way can be a challenge.
