Panoramica

Technical description of the route:

Departure from Montepisano Store in San Giuliano Terme for this itinerary to be done in two days and which will surprise us with the long history, the thousand traditions and the many naturalistic varieties of Monte Pisano. We will proceed clockwise, towards the north towards Lucca. We will meet fortresses and towers, the ‘Fortresses of the Border’, evidence of the disputes between Lucca and Pisa; we will pass by Lake Massaciuccoli, along the Puccini cycle and pedestrian path, today a nature reserve and Oasi Lipu, on the banks of which once stood a Roman Villa of which important archaeological finds remain. Once in Lucca, we will take advantage of a short guided tour and a snack based on typical products of the excellent cuisine of Lucca before leaving again alongside the monumental Nottolini Aqueduct and returning to the foot of the mountain. From here we will go towards the Compitese, a magical place, rich in spring waters where time seems to have stopped. We could decide to stop here on our tour, staying overnight in a lovely inn, to be able to visit the Borgo delle Camelie, the Camelieto, the Historic Garden of Excellence and leave the next day in the direction of Buti and Vicopisano on the Pisan side of the mountain. We will stop in Buti, another small village rich in history and traditions, famous for the Palio before reaching Vicopisano and the Antico Frantoio del Rio Grifone where we can stop for a lunch with tasting of organic EVO oil before heading back to Val Graziosa. Here a new surprise awaits us: the splendid Certosa Monumentale di Calci, which houses the Natural History Museum. A stop is a must before continuing on the saddle towards the starting point in San Giuliano Terme.

Throughout the tour an expert guide will be available to lead and assist the group by illustrating the nature and history of these incredible places.
