Agrisole

The agricultural company Agrisole is open all year for anyone who wants to visit and taste our products. Mamma Concetta will be happy to take you on a guided tour that will allow you to live a delightful experience, starting from the discovery of the vineyards, which are witness of our history and our way of working. Then we’ll move into the cellar for an introduction on our main wine-making methods followed by a tasting.

The guided tour is the best way to get to know Agrisole through the voice of those who everyday work with passion and dedication.

Weihnachtsmarkt

In Santa Croce square there is a typical Christmas village decorated with decorations and lights that sparkle on the stands of about fifty exhibitors. An interesting path between objects for the nativity scene and Christmas decorations, gift ideas and gastronomic temptations, for a journey into taste and traditions in the round. The house of Santa Claus is dedicated to the children, with a post office for the letters.

Mostra del tartufo bianco

An inebriating scent through the streets of San Miniato. The feast of flavors and aromas. You can breathe in the squares of the center since 1969 every year in the last three weekends of November and it is a superfine, intense perfume that involves the senses. A fragrance and a flavor that make gourmets, visitors and simple curious move. The Exhibition of the White Truffle of San Miniato is one of the most important events on the national scene for the promotion of the famous hypogean mushroom and is in effect a festival of flavors of the territory.

Festa del cinghiale

Every year in the village of Chianni Tuscan culinary traditions and flavors wait for you with the exceptional protagonist: the wild boar. Do not miss the fabulous “ penne al cinghiale” or the famous “ cinghilae in umido con olive” (stewed boar with olives).

Festa della Castagna

Located in the green hills of Valdera, the medieval village of Orciatico has been the scene for over 40 years of an event that traditionally takes place on the third Sunday of October.

During the day there are various attractions such as the craft markets in the streets of the village, musical entertainment and various shows.

Maximum importance is obviously given to the gastronomic aspect of the festival. In the food stands, open for lunch and dinner, people can taste some of the typical specialties of Tuscan cuisine. Throughout the day  it will also be possible to taste chestnuts, pancakes, migliacci and sweet wine.

Food and Wine Festival

A journey of the taste to the rediscovery of typical products and ancient recipes of the Tuscan territory.

Festa dell

For over half a century, the Grape and Wine Festival has been part of Terriciola’s history which has always been associated with wine thanks to the composition of the soil, rich with sand and fossil deposits, that have produced an ideal microclimate for the cultivation of grapes. The strong ties with wine making traditions (Terricciola is a Wine City) has characterised this event, that falls during the grape harvest season. Three days with the participation of the local and neighbouring wine producers.

Sagra della Ciliegia

While vineyard laden hills marked by the long, sinewy shadows of cypress trees in the late afternoon call to mind the Tuscany of most imaginations, orchards of succulently ripe cherries seem a distinct departure from the expected. The tiny burg of Lari, located in the Province of Pisa and just outside of Florence, is the setting for a unique festival entitled La Sagra delle Ciliegie (The Cherry Festival), dedicated to the ruby red fruit. Although not the number one cherry producing region in Italy, Lari is said to be the proud home of over 15 cherry varietals, which the locals showcase with joy at their annual festival. Set amongst rolling, orchard lined hills, Lari is a medieval stunner replete with an ancient castle, Il Castello dei Vicari or otherwise affectionately known by the locals as Il Castello, which serves as a lofty backdrop for the festival that takes place within the town’s historic quarter.

Corso Italia

The two historical quarters of this side of the city, Mezzogiorno, are divided by a very lively street: Corso Italia, the High Street of Pisa.

An ideal walk can begin from the Central Station, which was built in 1863 and then refurbished after the bombing of the Second World War.

Actually, this part of the city still has very clear signs of the atrocious bombings of 1944 when Pisa was attacked for 45 consecutive days: 57 bombings, over 3000 civilians killed and 50% of the buildings were destroyed.

This tragedy is evident walking from the station towards Corso Italia. All the buildings are modern or have been rebuilt.

Walking through via Gramsci, we arrive at an elliptical square, quite chaotic because of the traffic: this is Piazza Vittorio Emanuale, represented by the statue in the middle. Remember this square: most of the city busses stop here, there will soon be a major underground parking garage and the central Post Office is located here.

The buildings in the square are neo-gothic in style and were built with the square in 1872 after the demolition of part of the city walls and the old Gate of San Giulio.

Also located in this square is the church of Sant’Antonio, which gives its name to one of the quarters. The church was rebuilt after the bombing with the exception of the façade, which is in the typical Pisan style.

Tre Cristi

Seafood restaurants are thin on the ground in this meat-obsessed region, so the long existence of Tre Cristi (it’s been around since 1830) should be heartily celebrated. The menu here is as elegant as the decor, and touches such as a complimentary glass of prosecco at the start of the meal add to the experience. Exemplary service.
