Duration: 3 hours

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PINEWOOD OF TUSCANY
San Rossore Natural Park is a large protected area ranging from Marina di Pisa, just 10 kms from Pisa, to Torre del Lago, very near to Viareggio. Most of its vast territory is covered by pinewood hosting an enormous variety of wildlife, including wild bores, deer and above all many different species of birds. In the park the two Tuscan main rivers Arno and Serchio flow into the Thyrrhenian sea forming a unique and highly protected sandy beach. You can enjoy an unforgettable trip through the forest on board a horse carriage and get to know all the secrets of wild life of the natural reserve.

 

On coach to the protected beach
The easiest way to explore the vast woods of the natural reserve od San Rossore-Migliarino is on board a horse coach.
The tour of the park takes 2.5 hours all among pinewoods, meadows and pathways leading to a protected beach parallel to natural and artificial canals.
During the tour an expert nature guide tells you facts and information about the oldest trees, the particular vegetation and all the wild animals living the park, like wild boars, hares, owls and small oaks.
During the whole tour an English speaking tour leader – also German, French, Spanish and Russian available – assists and translates. Once arrived at the beach you can get off the coach and spend 30 minutes in a beautiful sandy beach.

 

In our tour we like showing you places off the beaten track and introducing you to Tuscan people with their personal stories, careers and characters.
You will have one of our guides with your party during the whole tour. Please, see below all the guides who can be with you.
During this experience you can also meet some of the Tuscan friends involved in the events. Please, see below which friends you are likely to encounter.
