our home is located in the center of chianti classic area, in the heart of Tuscany, between Siena and Florence.
Where is it?
Pisa is situated in North-West Tuscany between the mountains and the sea, on the banks of the river Arno, a great place for jogging, biking or just walking with the dog.
The city is not big, so you can visit all the most interesting places by walk or with a bike, not except for San Rossore Park, where is possible to practice horse riding, have a pic-nic and take a walk until the sea, which is exactly at the end of the park.
Pisa has a primary place in national and international tourism: preserves, with the complex of Piazza dei Miracoli â cultural patrimony of all humanity â numerous masterpieces of civil and military architecture and of medieval history. Everyone knows the Leaning Tower of Pisa and Piazza dei Miracoli where it stands, with its Cathedral, Baptistery and Monumental Cemetery.
Pisa is also a great touring base because it takes only 15 minutes to Lucca or Livorno, from where departs the ferry to Elba Island, a rinomated touristic place. In 30 minutes it is possible to reach the Versilia area, where are Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio, with their famous nightlife, fish cuisine and their long beaches. Here in summer it is carried out the notorious Puccini Opera Festival.
I can't miss to say that it takes only 1 hour by train to the beautiful Florence, and 2 hours to Siena, the Chianti Wine Valley and San Gimignano. 3 hours to Milan. 3 hours and a half to Rome.
