TOWER INN HOTEL: A SPRING DAY IN NATURE

TOWER INN HOTEL: A SPRING DAY IN NATURE

What can be better than a spring day spent outdoors in the company of the whole family and children in a park that offers thousands of possibilities! You can climb to the top of our fantastic Tower of Pisa and observe an ornithological paradise from above, situated to the westward of the city. But you can also visit it! We are now speaking about Migliarino, San Rossore and Massaciuccoli national park, this precious coastal reserve that spreads for 24000 hectares along the coast, between Livorno and Viareggio, just 5 kilometers away from Pisa and 30 – from Pontedera, that means just 30 minutes away from our four-star Tower Inn PisaValdera. This place is worth visiting, alone or with the whole family. For all of you this trip will become an unforgettable experience, rich in emotions; you’ll be able to admire an unusual avifauna (more than 200 species) of moors and dunes.
Fortunately nowadays it’s not like in Age of the Savoy, that after having received this territory as a gift for the Unification of Italy, decided to keep it all for themselves as a summer residence and a game reserve. San Rossore lands are a vast territory (more than 400 hectares), a natural and uncontaminated place that makes part of Migliarino regional park and stretches along the coast between Pisa and Lucca, an area of unspoiled nature, once scattered with lagoons and moors, later drained by man.
Here, between the coastal forests, dunes and natural beaches, you can meet fallow deer, buzzards, hawks, herons, cormorants, woodpeckers, wild boars and cute squirrels. There are so many things to see and to do while crossing the park. And there’s a great plenty of guided tours with excursionists, especially for children: a 2-hours’ trip in a little excursion train – a great opportunity to observe local fauna. Also you can explore the park on Saturday or Sunday, on foot or using one of the means of transport provided by the Visitors’ Centre, such as carriages pulled by horses, bikes or tandem bikes. There are also weekends in a camper, guided excursions to the lake, guided walks through the forest. By airline, this place is not too far from the center, but it’s advisable to get there by taxi, by car or rickshaw, however, be aware of horses, that in that place are much more numerous than cars, because of the fact that there’s a great quantity of important equestrian centers in the park, such as those of San Rossore and Barbaricina, with more than 600 horses that compete at the racecourse of Prato degli Escoli. There are also a lot of horse-riding centers and you may take your opportunity to go for a ride. Equestrian excursions are very popular, especially with children, for whom a lot of other educational and exploratory activities are also available, such as laboratories and a possibility to spend the whole day in nature, eating outdoors, since you can have fun picnicking on the lawn in accessible areas. Actually, barbecue is also allowed, providing that you comply with necessary safety measures and rules of the park in order to avoid creating dangerous situations. It’s also fun to gather forest products, but in this case you have to follow some specific rules and take precautions, especially if you decide to go mushroom-hunting or pick butcher’s-broom. The cherry on the top for such a day: you’ll have a chance to by local products of a guaranteed quality, such as local pine nuts or honey obtained using organic methods along the seacoast of the park. Moreover, here you can find homemade pecorino, a sweet cheese made from ewe’s milk, and delicious desserts of the park, that in order to promote and distribute traditional products, sponsored some pastry artisans’ creations, based on biological pine nuts and honey, such as Kinzika dessert or Migliarino chocolate candy, that are really delicious!
