Pisa and surroundings

Striking is the piazza dell'Anfiteatro, born over the ruins of the ancient Roman amphitheatre, the medieval Via Fillungo that brings together the more important shops and commercial businesses of the city and the famous Cathedral of San Martino.
VICOPISANO and Monti Pisani ( trekking )
Vicopisano is a fortified village that has a remarkable medieval heritage including twelve towers, two medieval palaces and the Rocca del Brunelleschi, which is open to the public with guided tours. From Vicopisano starts a journey through the churches and the parishes of the area: Pieve di Santa Maria, the Church of San Jacopo a Lupeta, Pieve di Santa Giulia Caprona, Pieve di San Giovanni in San Giovanni alla Vena, up to the Romanesque church of San Martino al Bagno Antico, inside the Terme di Uliveto. Between Pisa and Vicopisano, the charming view of the Tower of Caprona, that dominates in a precarious balance an underlying quarry. The tower is what remains of an ancient castle which is related to the name of Dante Alighieri, that in August 1289 took part in the battle for the possession of Caprona. The fact is mentioned by the same Dante in the twenty-first Canto of the Hell of the Divine Comedy.
The Park Migliarino San Rossore Massaciuccoli stretches along the coast of the provinces of Pisa and Lucca, in an area that was once characterized by lagoons and marshes, subsequently rehabilitate by the family of the Medici. The variety of natural environments, due to the geographical position and to the climatic conditions, and the presence of water are the elements that shape and distinguish San Rossore Park. This variety determines the wealth and diversity of animal (birdlife is incredibly prosperous, deer, wild boar, foxes, porcupines, dormice, badgers and squirrels) and plant species including some rarities. Among the traditional activities of the area, besides farming, gathering of pine nuts and cattle and sheep breeding, one of the strongest traditions is horse racing, which links breeding to sport activities, with the Racecourse of San Rossore, also known as Prato degli Escoli, which is very well attended in the racing season.
