Vicopisano's territory is included in the exquisite naturalistic context of Monte Pisano.
Monte Pisano is a mountain system that separates Pisa and Lucca, and its importance is given by its very ancient geological history, by its variegated natural ecosystem and by its privileged geographical position. Those mountains are all under 1000 metres of height. The highest peak, Monte Serra (917 m,) and the other mounts sourrounding the area offer the opportunity to admire - during the clearest days - evocative landscapes: northward we can find the Garfagnana's and Val di Nievole's territories, westward we can appreciate the proximity of the coast between Viareggio and Livorno; this wonderful view allow us to expand our gaze until the marine horizon where we can catch sight of the Tuscanian archipelago. Southwest it is possible to glimpse the little hills of Livorno and the Pisan hills, letting our sight go until Volterra.
Its special conformation makes it isolated and not well connected to the other mountains. This is the reason why this terriroty is unique as for the plant and animal life and suitable for a full contact with nature. Vicopisano is preferred by those who like to take a walk alone but, at the same time, by those who like to be escorted by our tour guides who can make you appreciate the secrets and the stories of this wonderful territory.
There are old paths that, from Vicopisano's village, lead to the olive tree groves, pine forests and chestnut orchards but also to some old religious buildings and archeological areas: Romitorio, Pieve di San Michele alla Verruca, Castello della Verruca. You can visit them guided by our skilled tour guides.
