What you'll do

We'll cross the plain between Pisa and Calci, a village at the foot of Monti Pisani. You'll experience an immersion in the countryside nature just few kilometers away from the city of Pisa. Riding on easy pathway on the leeves of the Arno river, we'll cross the quiet and fashinating tuscan landscape, while on the way I'll introduce some of the geological and historical aspect of the area. When arrived at Calci you will have the possibility to visit the amazing Natural History Museum, which is setted inside the beautiful Carthusian monastery. After the visit we'll eat one the best "schiacciata" of Calci and then we'll ride back to Pisa on quiet secondary road.
