Pisa is divided into historical quarters which are then split into smaller neighbourhoods. As a city of less than 100,000 people, Pisa is easy to navigate, but take a look at apartments in the most central neighbourhoods to make getting around easier. The four quarters of Pisa are San Francesco; San Martino; Sant’Antonio and Santa Maria. Located outside of the historic city walls, San Francesco is a great base for many of the city’s places of interest, and along with Santa Maria is the main centre of Pisa’s nightlife. Santa Maria, to the west of San Francesco, is home to the Leaning Tower, as well as the Cathedral and several other important buildings. Stay here for great nightlife, and to be right in the centre of Pisa’s history. San Martino is packed with markets and shops, as well as bars and restaurants. Across the River Arno from Santa Maria sits Sant’Antonio which contains some majestic architecture as well as being well connected to the other areas.
