The Vicopisano area: a slice of Tuscany to discover

Welcome to Vicopisano and its terrotory!

Its location is ideal for a peaceful stay, as it is close to the main communication routes of Tuscany, making it easily accessible, but at the same time distant from the main traffic routes.

Vicopisano's municipal territory of which the medieval village of Vicopisano is the main town, stretches along Monte Pisano, in an itinerary characterised by the presence of no less than six small hamlets - San Giovanni alla Vena, Uliveto Terme, Lugnano,, Caprona, Noce and Cucigliana (plus the agglomeration of Guerrazzi) - each with its own history, curiosities and characters that animate the squares and festivals.

Vicopisano is in a good position, in the immediate Pisan hinterland and a short distance from the main roads in the area, such as the A11 motorway and the FI-PI-LI highway. Despite this, the town is not crossed by large traffic and therefore looks like a village that offers a high quality of life, plenty of greenery, tranquility and clean air.
The municipality of Vicopisano is a very short distance from the Cascina and Pontedera exits of the SGC FI-PI-LI, and is located near the main road axis that connects the Cascina-Pontedera area with Bientina, Altopascio and the other municipalities of the Lucca area.

Or now get ready to relive stories of ancient sieges and battles, ambitious military and hydrographic engineering projects, with fortified fortresses and drained lakes, to immerse yourself in a lush landscape where harmony and tranquillity reign, with nature trails, walks and excursions on Monte Pisano, tasting of olive oil and typical products. Let us welcome you in our small accommodation facilities and live with us: for a day or for as long as you wish, discover the secrets and curiosities of the small towns in our territory and of the Tuscany that embraces us all around.

Vicopisano was awarded the prestigious Orange Flag in 2021, a recognition of tourist-environmental quality awarded by the Italian Touring Club (TCI) to small municipalities in the Italian hinterland that stand out for their excellent offer and quality reception.
