I have written about several walking itineraries in Pisa (check my last post about our walk along the river Arno at Le Piagge) and I am very pleased to see that over the last few years many organized walking tours have been organized.
Pisa is a perfect place for walking: it’s flat, so you don’t need to be particularly fit to explore it on foot, and the center is relatively small, so it can be properly explored in a limited amount of time.
“Walking Pisa” are 3 hour tours of the center offered on a regular basis (until November 20, 2010). It is possible to join these walking tours on Mondays at 3 p.m., on Thursdays at 3 p.m., and on Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. The tours are very affordable and cost only 12 euros per person. They are free for kids under 15 years old. It is not necessary to book in advance, so it is possible to join them at the very last minute.
For those who love walking, a nice event is the Tuscany Walking Festival which includes walks in the best nature parks in the region.
Another interesting idea is Urban Trekking. The website is very interesting, and it includes a list of cities where urban trekking itineraries are available.
