The most daring can go climbing, take survival courses and venture on off-road trails. But even the most cautious can experience the wonderful natural scenery of the area without taking any risks.
CLIMBING - Free or with ropes, climbing is something not to miss out on in the Terre di Pisa. As far as free climbing goes, we particularly recommend the falesia di Avane, an old 'outdoor' climbing gym. Open even in winter, it is considered easier than its counterparts in the Apuan Alps.
Then there is the Ferrata Sant’Antone, which unwinds over a series of crags on Monte Serra - at 917 metres, the highest peak in the Pisan mountains. Open all year round, the course sticks to a relatively low level, with an altitude difference of 126 metres and a suspension bridge to boot. Despite its modest height, this is a tough ferrata (which literally translates as 'iron road'), with technical stretches that test the mettle even of expert trekkers.
OFF-ROAD + VESPA – You can discover Monte Pisano's most secret nooks and crannies on a 4x4 trail. This off-road tour is suitable for all, and you can select different routes depending on the time you have; some choices are dictated by the season.
If you prefer two wheels, jump on the iconic Vespa and go round the real, unchanged medieval hilltowns, which still savour of the olden days.
PARKS – Apart from the aforementioned and wonderful San Rossore Park, which offers different tours all year round - on foot, by bike, and on horseback - you should also discover the “Il Pineto” adventure park at the Marina di Pisa. Entrance is always free; you pay only if you want to tackle the agility courses, suspended between the trees.
Finally, we encourage you to visit the caves of Monticello in Asciano Pisano. This voyage beneath Monte Pisano introduces you to an underground Tuscany accessible to all.
Well, now it's up to you to try one of these experiences and live a summer of active tourism, always in touch with nature.
