Italy Internship Guide: Life in Pontedera

Pontedera is one of those small towns whose beauty has been blurred by the more over-rated big cities that people visit. You can only truly appreciate the simplicity and solitude of this town, once you start living here.


The next day after your arrival in the Biorobotics Institute, you will be introduced to your supervisor and the team that you will be working with. You’ll be given a map of the town which is a really interesting way to discover nearby places. You’ll definitely get lost but find great shops and restaurants on your way. Somehow, you’ll find your way back.

To make the most out of living in Pontedera, I have written short pages on everything that you need to know about.

  1. Internet Access
  2. Elevator
  3. Kitchen
  4. Grocery Shopping
  5. Street Harassment
  6. Gelateria
  7. Nature
  8. Cafes, Pizzerias and Halal restaurants
  9. Laundry
  10. Cycling
  11. Work-Life
  12. Downtown
  13. Rapunzel moments

My memories of Pontedera lives withing these pages and by guiding you, I’ll be re-living all of it again and again. I really hope that these pages guide you during your internship.
