A maritime republic during the Middle Ages, Pisa is today known mainly for its Leaning Tower, one of the most iconic attractions in Italy. Tourists flock there everyday to get creative while posing for photos with the tower, but waking up to a view over the legendary landmark adds even more flavour to a holiday. Nonetheless, location is not all that these hotels boast, as each of them also offers its own unique take on Tuscan hospitality.
