Description

Click on the “Program” button to discover the route and all the points of interest it encounters.

Starting from San Giuliano Terme we move away from Monte Pisano towards Pisa to admire the mountain relief. We pedal south and then get closer to the foot of the mountain in the hamlet of Agnano. Here begins the climb to Passo della Conserva a relaxing place just 370m above sea level on Monte Pisano, where centuries-old chestnut trees alternate with breathtaking views of the horizon and the Tyrrhenian Sea. The route continues towards the village of Asciano, always descending through paths and mountain paths characterized by the typical vegetation of the mediterranean bush. Once you have reached the plain again, you go back to San Giuliano Terme, this time, however, skirting the Mount and its ancient quarries originally used for the construction of the Tower of Pisa and its monumental complex.

During the whole tour a professional guide will assist the group and tell everything about nature and history of these incredible places.
