The history of Grand Hotel Duomo
in front of the tower of Pisa starts in the 1960s

Grand Hotel Duomo Pisa was founded in 1959 by Silvio and Miranda Panichi and managed by Marzio Benedetti, who was also President of Federalberghi for a long time, for over 40 years since the 1960s.

Built according to the canons of the geometric rationalism of the period, devoted to the concept of order, cleanliness of form and functionality, today it returns vaguely retro-style suggestive atmospheres with different materials merging into one another in a game of shapes and colours. Among the materials, the incomparable quality of the real white marble and travertine finishes adorning the hall and common rooms stands out. Marble, a precious and imperishable material, creates, with its veins, a luxurious and exclusive environment. The regular and squared shapes of the marble are crossed and heated by precious wooden frames; tasteful textiles and furnishings complete and refine the rooms with skilful touches.

Our Italian and foreign guests receive a top-level service, typical of a 4-star hotel. Our professional welcome has no particular secret except for our attitude and how we take care of people, our discreet curiosity for their stories, an attention to their needs. We are convinced that real luxury is not just a matter of marble decorations that obviously enhance the hotel's rooms with their value, or of the latest design of the seats and tables on the panoramic terrace overlooking the Tower of Pisa, but it is instead something that has to do with the sincere smile of those who have been taking care of you for two generations.
