The "Colline Pisane" (Pisan Hills) is a small but wonderful area of Tuscany not far from the Tyrrhenian Sea. A quite peaceful area which extends from Pontedera to Volterra creating a softly corrugated landscape which has kept its morphology intact. The Pisan hills border the hills of Leghorn to the east and those of Florence to the west.
Church towers rise above the soft green plains and hills characterized by secular forests and luxuriant vineyards. They are the churches of charming small villages worth to be visited and discovered. Many are the reasons: fairytale landscapes, traces of a glorious past and culinary delight.
These charming small medieval villages characterized by ancient castles and palaces have maintained the same charm of the past and they attract the eyes of every 'quality' tourist.
The ideal place for tranquillity-loving people who will benefit from walking in natural spaces in harmony with the environment. Short distances and gentle slopes make you feel like leaving the car and walking through the landscape, or riding a bike or a horse.
The Pisan Hills are not only an open-air museum or a nature reserve, but they also represent the heart of a pulsating community which grows together with its economy based on varying activities. Many are the events, shows and festivals organized in this area which are symbol of a vivid social life and of the profitable relationship between man and territory. Show more Show less
