Pisa - a city in Italy. Life and gay

My friend Riaz visited Pisa recently for work - in fact in stayed there for 6 weeks on behalf of work. He dropped me an email of his discoveries and shared of his shock of the little gay life there. Coming from London Riaz and myself are so incredibly lucky that we have such a vibrant gay scene, here's his story:

Last night I walked through numerous Medieval alley ways in Pisa. It
is such a different place with such a different kind of life compared
to London, it is overwhelming. I am back in a different time. There
are no McDonalds, KFC's or Starbuck's. Good thing is Pisa doesn't need
them. It's got far better places for bites and coffee. It's got a
vibrant student population thanks for a very famous university.
Haven't seen the bent tower yet but will do over the weekend. Pisans
seem very friendly to outsiders even though there are language issues
in non-touristy areas. I have been using the usual Italian words for
hello and please and nod and point my way to the rest. It seems to
working. Facebook will have some pictures soon.


BTW, just for Gaypedia info, there are currently NO gay bars in Pisa
even though there are smatterings of info on the web stating
otherwise. The nearest place for gay bars is Firenze (Florence).
