Saddle up on your bike to visit the protected area of Tuscany’s vastest coastal lake.
A one day beautiful excursion that immediately amazes for its easy realization. Just a few steps away from the Lucca city walls, we will follow the cycle lane which runs next to River Serchio. Cycling towards the west side of the river, we’ll arrive to the charming village of Nozzano, ideal place to relax first and to admire both its story and the charming view of most of the valley.
Continuing along country sideways, we will reach the panoramic terrace of Balbano’s Mount, from where it is possible to admire the entire Regional Park of Migliarino San Rossore Massaciuccoli, which extends itself until the beaches.
Once arrived at the WWF Chiarone Reservation, positioned on the east coast of Massaciuccoli Lake, we will be able to join multiple recreational activities available for visitors, or just enjoy a pleasing lunch break in the wine bars and restaurants next to the river.
The journey who brings us back to Lucca follows the cycle lane of a reclaimed land, cultivated all year long, where colours interchange following the period: starting from the bright red of the poppies, continuing with the deep green of the wheat, which is immediately replaced with the dazzling yellow of the sunflowers when ready to be harvested.
An extraordinary show which continues until we reach Serchio’s cycle lane which extends until Lucca. Nature, countryside and history make this one of the most liked itineraries. Carry yourself away into this magical journey!
