Travel from Pisa city center to train station Pisa Centrale

Pisa is an Italian city that is bursting with charm. Far more than just leaning towers, Pisa is home to staggering museums, gorgeous old streets and opulent piazzas. Visiting the city center is luckily very straightforward from train station Pisa Centrale. From the exterior, the train station appears more of a romantic villa rather than a transportation hub. The station services many cities in Italy, as well as other European nations such as Austria, France, Germany and Switzerland. Due to the damage the station obtained during WWII, its design was updated but still leans towards its original façade. The interior of the train station Pisa Centrale has a modernistic feel and is equipped with all of the amenities you would come to expect for a busy European railway station.
