The Pisan coast

  • The Pisan coast – for a seaside outing

    The pretty road from Pisa to the coast follows the Arno to the sea. About 6 km (4 miles) southwest of Pisa, it passes San Piero a Grado, a fine basilica which would once have overlooked the sea. Legend has it that this is the spot where St Peter first set foot on Italian soil. Once at the coast, 12 km from Pisa, you can visit resort of Marina di Pisa, if only for a stroll along the café-lined promenade. If you’re, lucky, there are distant views of the islands of Gorgona and Capraia. Tirrenia, 5 km further down the coast, offers a stretch of pine forest but is still an underwhelming resort compared with the more upmarket Forte dei Marmi, Viareggio or Marina di Pietrasanta, Still, if you’re sated of art and architecture, this makes a pleasant day out, with a seafood lunch, probably involving pasta and clams.  From Pisa, the alternative coastal route, going north instead of south, takes in Viareggio and Torre del Lago. This drive best suits opera buffs as it’s a Puccini trail centred on the shores of Lake Massaciuccoli. (It’s covered in an itinerary from Viareggio).

Florence magnificent Accademia Gallery Tour

The gallery of academy was founded in 1784 by the Grand Duke of Tuscany Pietro Leopoldo di Lorena. His aim was to gather together all the painting and drawing school of Florence in one only big Academy that enshrines all the work of arts used by art students to practice and exercise.
Over the years the Academy filled with a huge amount of paintings and statues and it changed several times its collections until, in 1827, it experienced a huge breakthrough with the arrival of the real David made by Michelangelo. From that year, the Academy was rearranged with a different purpose: be introduced to the public as a Michelangelo museum.
