The ruins of Verruca

 

Trekking tour to the Verruca fortress

The ancient chain of mountains separating Pisa from Lucca, called Monti Pisani, is a unique area from the scenic point of view. Very close to the coast and over the two towns, these mountains are a perfect place for trekking tours, horseriding excursions and cultural walks. Arianna & Friends bring you to the ruins of the old fortress Verruca, built during the Middle Ages, on a peak over the towns Vicopisano and Calci, with a unique perspective of the Charterhouse of Calci. Our half day trekking tour with a local naturalistic guide is your occasion to get to learn a lot of interesting information about the vegetation of this particular setting.
