On the right of the entrance there is the lounge with a wood stove, then a toilet with washbasin and WC.

The Tuscany region

The environs of Pisa offer landscapes of a time gone by, where harmony and tranquillity are preserved and small hidden hamlets are the keepers of history, art and culture.

In the Monti Pisani area, the village of Vicopisano has retained the appearance of a fortress and boasts a considerable medieval heritage. Of particular interest are the twelve towers, two medieval buildings and the Rocca del Brunelleschi, open to the public with guided tours.

A route around the churches of the area starts in Vicopisano with the Church of Santa Maria, the Church of San Jacopo in Lupeta, continues with the Church of Santa Giulia in Caprona and the Church of San Giovanni in San Giovanni alla Vena, and ends with the small Romanesque Church of San Martino al Bagno Antico, inside Uliveto Spa.

The Caprona Tower, between Pisa and Vicopisano, rests precariously on a rock spur overhaging a quarry. The tower is all that remains of a castle that is linked to the great poet Dante Alighieri, who took part in the battle for Caprona in August 1289. The incident is featured in the 21st Canto of Dante's Inferno.

Calci

Near Calci there are two major sites: the Certosa Monumentale (Monumental Charterhouse) and the Natural History Museum of Pisa University, housed in a wing of the complex, where important mineralogical, paleontological and zoological collections are preserved. The Certosa is a monumental Baroque-style complex founded in the 15th century by the bequest of an Armenian merchant. It is formed of a large internal courtyard and a series of surrounding buildings containing cellars, orchards and areas suitable for Carthusian life. It was used by Carthusian monks until the 1970s and is open for visits today.
