Review by Linda from Switzerland
The coziest, most convenient place to stay for your Tuscan experience
Review by Jesper from Denmark
The apartment is really what you want and its placement, like also Pisa's position in the lovely Toscana is perfect.

Review by Judy from Germany
Sehr zufriedenstellend!! - Very satisfying!!
Review by Tom from UK
The apartment is simply but very tastefully furnished with lots of nice personal touches and is generously supplied with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. Everything was spotlessly clean and very well maintained.
Review by Tom from UK
Marcel and Gloria were excellent and gave great value and advice to make every thing easy.
Review by Steve from UK
Ideally located in Pisa, just a couple of hundred metres from the Tower and with supermarket and rail and bus nearby.
Review by Bill from England
Apartment is spotlessly clean with plenty of seating.
Review by Mikael from Sweden
The apartment is a modern and well kept vacation rental.
Review by David from UK
We found it a good city location, for even when not doing anything special you can just walk round the corner to the tower area and soak up the sun, the sights and the atmosphere (it's fantastic to see so many people from all nationalities coming together).
Review by Fran from Finland
We would definitely stay here again. I have already recommended Behind The Tower to friends. The location is brilliant for the Tower, is near enough to the centre to be able to walk, public transport is great if needed, and Gloria and Marcel are both lovely.
Review by Martti from Finland
The owners were super kind people and they really take care of their clients.
Review by Janika from Finland
The apartment was nice and cozy for two.
Review by David from UK
Gloria and Marcel's rental apartment in Pisa was just what I needed.
Review by Susan from UK
The apartment is extremely well located for visiting the Tower and the centre of Pisa generally.
Review by Jurgen from Germany
The apartment is a five-minute walk from the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Review by Cyndy from USA
I was thrilled to win a three night stay at Behind the Tower in the January 2006 Slowtrav.com contest, but it took Gloria and Marcel's very gracious hospitality to really make me feel like "Queen for a Day!"
Review by Mark from England
Great location just a couple of minutes walk from the leaning tower.
Review by Bernice from England
The flat was just a couple of minutes walk from the leaning tower in Pisa.
Review by Graham and Lin from UK
Just outside the city walls of Pisa - very convenient for the major tourist attractions.
Review by Nick from England
Apartment was very clean and had everything you could want (washing machine / fridge / freezer / cooker / ironing board etc). Plenty of space in the apartment to relax.
Review by Gila from Israel
It was a two-minute walk to the Tower of Pisa, a 15-minute bus ride to the train station and around the corner from a large supermarket.
The flat had its own private entrance, was superbly comfortable and well-appointed.
Review by Velda from USA
Behind the Tower is a perfect location for someone who wants to experience Italian life in a charming city (Pisa) and also travel around the surrounding area by car or by train.
Behind the Tower is a 5 minute walk from the Campo dei Miracoli. (You can see the Leaning Tower from the front window!)
Getting around Pisa from the apartment is easy, as the San Rossore train station and a local bus stop are both less than 5 minutes away.
Review by Steve & Darlyne from USA
The location of Behind the Tower apartment is in the city of Pisa. The apartment has a lovely neighborhood backyard feel with a balcony facing a courtyard with trees, gardens and other balconies.
Behind the Tower apartment is a brief 5-minute walk from the Campo dei Miracoli (Baptistry, Cathedral, Monumental Cemetary, Sinopie Museum, Museo dell'Opera, Duomo and the Leaning Tower).
In addition, the apartment is about a 3-minute walk to a large grocery store (coffee, spices, salt/pepper, vinegar/oil, napkins/paper towels, bottle water, laundry soap, were furnished in the apartment by the owners/hosts, Gloria and Marcel).
Review by Zoë & Frank from Canada
I had the opportunity to stay at Behind the Tower during my visit to Pisa a couple of weeks ago. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to spend more time in the city than it takes to see the tower and get back on the tour bus.
The owner, Gloria, picked us up at the airport and brought us right to the house. She was extremely helpful and gave us lots of suggestions for things to see that we might otherwise have missed.
