Project Description


Tour Details



Vicopisano is a lovely village that preserves a Medieval past thanks to the many towers we will see strolling in the alleys to get to the top of the hill. At the top, there’s the Brunelleschi fortress as well as a wonderful view of the surrounding Tuscan countryside.

The splendid parish church of Vicopisano inside preserves a unique group of sculptures that represent the Deposition of Jesus, from the 13th Century.

After the village, we can take a little walk to discover other parish churches hidden at the foot of the Verruca mountain.

The tour can be combined with an excellent olive oil tasting which includes the visit to one of the oldest mills in the area. Contact us for more information.
