Beautiful Views. Catching the Ventricular Railway up the hill is a must, and walking back is something left only for the fit and the brave. A lot of history and side roads to explore.... we encountered a great coffee shop nearest the town statue/fountain on...More

Beautiful place of surprises. Very popular with Italians and Germans so you know it must be good. Great base for Pisa and Florence.

Quaint little hilltop village with shops, bars, restaurants. A nice homely feel with great views atop the Funiculare. Grab a gelato and a drink or some homemade tiramisu and pizza, sit back and enjoy the sunshine and atmosphere.

A very easy ride up to 'Alto' provides stunning views, some beautiful buildings and streets and good cafes, also great for a bit of cooler weather on a hot day.
