The tour of Mount Pisano by bicycle

2 Days

A loop to discover Mount Pisano in its entirety!

From San Giuliano Terme, along an almost totally flat route, we will arrive in Lucca to visit this lovely walled city. Not before, however, flanking the Serchio River along its namesake park and crossing ancient borders still marked by fortresses, castles and towers. We will resume our itinerary along the majestic Nottolini Aqueduct, whose arches will lead us to the foot of the mountain. We will cross Compitese, with its camellia village, to flank the slopes of Mount Pisano until we reach Vicopisano. The next day we will resume cycling on the Pisan side of the mountain going to discover the village of Vicopisano, Uliveto Terme, Caprona and Calci in the beautiful Val Graziosa. After a guided tour of the monumental Carthusian Monastery and an old farm, we will close the loop by returning to the spa town of San Giuliano Terme, where we can choose to relax in the thermal pools of Bagni di Pisa.

Technical description:

Departure from Montepisano Store in San Giuliano Terme for this two-day itinerary that will surprise us with the long history, thousands of traditions and many naturalistic varieties of Monte Pisano. It will proceed clockwise, heading north toward Lucca. We will encounter fortresses and towers, the ‘Border Fortresses,’ evidence of the disputes between Lucca and Pisa; we will pass by Lake Massaciuccoli, along the Puccini bicycle path, now a nature reserve and Lipu Oasis, on whose shores stood a Roman Villa of which important archaeological finds remain. When we arrive in Lucca we will take advantage of a short guided tour and a snack of typical products of Lucca’s excellent cuisine before setting off again flanking the monumental Nottolini Aqueduct and returning to the foot of Mt. From here we will go to the Compitese, a magical place rich in spring waters where time seems to stand still. We might decide to make our tour stop here, staying overnight in a lovely Locanda, so that we can visit the Borgo delle Camelie, the Camelieto, Historical Garden of Excellence and leave the next day in the direction of Buti and Vicopisano on the Pisan side of Mt. We will stop in Buti, another small village rich in history and tradition, famous for the Palio before reaching Vicopisano and the Antico Frantoio del Rio Grifone where we can stop for a lunch with organic EVO oil tasting before setting off again toward Val Graziosa. Here a new surprise awaits us: the beautiful Monumental Charterhouse of Calci, which houses the Museum of Natural History. A stop is a must before continuing in the saddle to the starting point in San Giuliano Terme.

Throughout the tour an experienced guide will be on hand to lead and assist the group by explaining nature and history of these incredible places.
