Bike tourism on the coast


The coast between Pisa and Livorno features long sandy beaches, shaded Mediterranean pinewoods and gentle slopes: an ideal setting for bike tourism. In the distance of a few km it is possible to pass from the sea to the hills and to every curve you will find different panoramas.
In addition to the waterfront bicycle paths, there are numerous routes on the territory to explore by bike. The most suggestive itineraries cross vineyards and olive groves, fields, villages and forests a short distance from the sea.
Along the local streets, almost always free of traffic, you can cycle immersed in Mediterranean perfumes. The best times to go cycling on the coast are surely spring and autumn when nature is shown in its most beautiful dress and the streets are free from traffic.
The small villages in the hinterland are ideal to discover on a bicycle, but you cannot miss the great art cities of Pisa and Livorno. Using cycling trails and alleys in the historic center, you can bike in Piazza dei Miracoli or in the panoramic Terrazza Mascagni.
Mountain bikers, on the other hand, can find numerous dirt roads in the Natural Park of Migliarino, San Rossore and Massaciuccoli, placed just behind the beach.
