From Montepisano to the sea passing through the city of Pisa.

With this route we will start from San Giuliano Terme and reach the most famous tower in the world: the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The Lungarni and the narrow streets of the city will be a special experience before leaving the urban area. On the way towards the sea we will encounter the stunning Parish Cathedral of San Piero Grado (X century) and we will rejoin the ‘Trammino’  cycle-path built on the track of the old tramway that  connected Pisa to the sea in the old times. We will cycle up to the mouth of the Arno river which flows into the sea after meandering throughout Tuscany. The last stretch of the river and cycle path will be characterized by the typical ‘Retoni’ (fishing nets).

    The tour starts at the Montepisano Store in San Giuliano Terme. From here begins the journey to the city of Pisa to admire the Leaning Tower, Piazza dei Miracoli, the typical alleys of the city and the Lungarni. Once out of the city following the traces of an ancient tram that was used to connect the city to the coast, we will proceed towards the sea along the Arno river. It will not be rare in some places to meet grazing animals and wild birds. Once you arrive on the coast it will then be possible to see the ancient fishing nets and access the tourist port of Marina di Pisa to refresh yourself or take a nice dip from the neighboring beach. Once the break is over, you will follow the path in reverse, now having Monte Pisano and the Apuan Alps in front of you for a suggestive ride. Once you reach San Giuliano Terme you can opt to stay at the thermal baths and enjoy a well-deserved session in the luxurious SPA.

    During the tour an expert guide will be at the group’s disposal to lead and assist them by illustrating the nature and history of these incredible places.
