Discovering the Pisa’s surroundings

In the very heart of the Tuscany region, Pisa is next to the River Arno and close to the Ligurian Sea. The surroundings are a magical mixture of beautiful nature and medieval towns, sandy and fashion beaches, clean and lovely seasides as the Versilia area, pretty famous all over the world.

If you have time for excursions outside Pisa, then you have to consider a trip to the neighbouring Tuscan city of Lucca, full of wonderful, historical monuments and medieval buildings. The town is on a hill, surrounded by big walls and leaning olive trees.

You can explore the countryside by bike, on the horseback, or simply having long and nice walks among vineyards and olive groves.
The area is particularly famous for its wine and its “cantine” and “osterie”: “La strada del vino delle Colline Pisane” (the wine itinerary of Pisa’s hills that goes from Pisa to San Miniato) includes famous wines, such as Chianti DOCG, Chianti Colline Pisane, il Colli dell’Etruria Centrale, il Vin Santo, San Torpè, IGT Toscano.
You can discover also the many organic and non-organic farms producing the most delicious food such as extra virgin olive oil, sausage, cheese, honey.
