Culture in Tuscany
The place that was the source of inspiration for painters, composers and writers.
One of the fullest itineraries which initially takes Serchio’s cycle lane towards west until the coastal zone is reached.
After a break in Marina di Vecchiano beaches for a quick swim or simply for a lunch stop in the bars, we cycle through the cycle street of the pine forest alongside the beaches, which conducts us to Torre del Lago. From here, we can easily reach Massaciuccoli west lake side, where the private accommodation of Giacomo Puccini is located.
This wonderful villa, fully decorated in Art Nouveau, can be visited. It is also possible to deepen the composer’s life and the realisation of the countless pieces of work that were conceived amongst those walls.
Another significant place, it’s the nearby theatre dedicated to Maestro Puccini where every summer he is commemorated with a large musical calendar which recalls his prestigious works.
The tour continues along cultivated fields following charming country roads until reaching the river that will be the sentinel of our journey back home.
