Countryside

Chianni - CampagnaCultivated Hills and orchards, woods of chestnuts and age-old trees, expanses of olive groves and rows of vines: this is the Pisan countryside with the thousands of colours, fragrances, food and wine products that can only be found here.

It is, however, also a land where agriculture is the principal industry and the businesses contribute to the territorial identity of these sites by ensuring that the typical, genuine quality of the products is safeguarded and upheld.

The rural roots of this land are immortalised by the paintings of the Macchiaioli, artists that lived in the splendid nineteenth century villas in Fauglia and Crespina and captured the enchanting colours of the countryside and images of the farming life and work.

The striking countryside of the land, whether the Colline Pisane,Valdera, Valdarno, Monti Pisani or Val di Cecina, boasts paths and trails for hiking and trekking, mountain biking or horse riding deep in a natural setting and offering a scenic view of colours that blend and merge with the changing seasons and the time of day, where each take can lead and a new direction and along a new path, chosen from the numerous options and offers, to explore the many centres of art scattered throughout the surrounding area, the nearby coast or the immensely beautiful and particular natural landscapes, through small or large hamlets to come across Roman-Pisan Pievi, or rural chruches, Medieval fortresses and watch towers.
