Where to sleep

The Fab Lab is located in Navacchio, which is more a commercial / residential area, and there isn’t much night life around.

If you are ok with that there are several convenient places where to sleep.

Hotels in Pisa

If you want to visit the city during the night and have access to bars and restaurants, you can pick one of the many hotels in Pisa.

I recommend one which is located behind the main street and few hundred meters away from the main train station.

From there you can get a regional train to the Fab Lab, make sure it stops in Navacchio station.
