The Hills Around Pisa

Peace, privacy and close contact with nature: these are the three main ingredients of your next holidays in Pisa, especially if you have decided to rent a typical Tuscan villa on the hills for one or more weeks, instead of staying in a b&b or in hotel in the city centre.

You can choose a holiday villa in the province of Pisa, in the Val di Cecina or in the region of the Colline Pisane.
Both these areas are characterized by gentle hills covered with cereal fields, olive groves and vineyards.
  • The Val di Cecina, which owes its name to the homonymous river that flows through it, stretched between the provinces of Livorno and Pisa and is divided into various municipalities, many of which have a population of barely 2,000 inhabitants. The main towns of the Val di Cecina are Pomarance (which is particularly renowned for the borax fumaroles in Larderello), Volterra (where important evidence of Etruscan and Roman settlements is to be admired), Cecina (a widely renowned seaside resort) and Montescudaio, which is enlisted among the most beautiful villages in Italy.

  • The region of the Colline Pisane, part of which is called Valdera, stretches south of Pontedera and north of Volterra and includes about 15 municipalities. The most important one is certainly Lari, which in the past was the "capital town" of the area. Due to its geographical position, the ancient medieval town was also the object of bloody struggles among Pisa, Lucca and Florence. The Castello dei Vicari - a fortress built between 1230 and 1287 by order of the Upezzinghi family, which has undergone several modifications over the centuries - dominates the highest part of the town.
