Attractions

In a few miles many jewels of Tuscany to be discovered: this is “Terre di Pisa”. Beyond the Leaning Tower, the Miracles’ Square and the riversides you can discover Volterra, land of Etruscans and alabaster stone, or San Miniato on the Pilgrim Road to Rome and town of the white truffle.

A golden triangle in which less famous villages and hamlets are interwoven, surprising for their genuine beauty. The “Terre di Pisa” give you true experiences and unexpected emotions in an extremely varied territory which from the seaboard touches the Arno plain and rises up to gentle rolling hills, low mountains or rough rocky gullies. A rich artistic and natural heritage, in which flavors and pleasures of good food and drink are combined in a blend of tradition and innovation.
