Pisa, Italy

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 around

  • 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.
    • The Pisa Centrale train station is in the middle of town, and walking distance to most hotels.
  • 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.

What to see

  • The leaning tower is the most famous sight in Pisa, but far from the only interesting sight.
  • The historic center of the city contains many churches and other sights.
  • The city is filled with small (local) restaurants hidden away in the many narrow streets.
  • There’s a big University in town – and a large hospital.
  • The Arno river runs across the town.
  • There’s a large train station with connections to Roma, Florence and other major Italian cities.

Lisbon

Lisbon is the capital for Portugal, and an often overlooked destination for City vacations it seems. We rented an apartment for a week in the old part of town and went exploring. Lisbon is a reasonably small town making it easy to explore many sight by foot, by tram, by busses or by trains. Apart from Lisbon itself, it’s also quite easy to take the train to Sintra and explore the Castles there.

Prag

Prag er hovedstaden i Tjekkiet og en af de destinationer, som er blevet nemme at besøge på en storby ferie med lavpris flyselskaberne. Vi besøgte den via et tilbud fra Rejsefeber, der havde pakket fly og hotel sammen til en superpris.
