After an initial briefing on the correct and safe use of the foot bike, we will start our excursion with a tour of the walls of Lucca: here you can push your bike along the promenade/cycle path, that at the top of the ramparts, completes the tour of the city with a breathtaking view of the city center and the Apuan Alps.
After the tour of the walls , we will set off along the Puccini cycle path along the Serchio river with its beautiful clear waters, which will accompany us with its scenery to the entrance of the San Rossore – Migliarino – Massaciuccoli Park. Here we will stay for the night in a pleasant B&B in the pine forest of the Migliarino estate.
The following day we set off to explore the mouth of the Serchio and, riding on our faithfull foot bikes, we will reach the outskirts of Viareggio along the coastal paths of the park: here we will have the opportunity to discover unique places such as the (protected) coastal dunes, unique environments of great natural interest. Finally, heading south, we reach Torre del Lago Puccini, where the famous composer wrote many of his works in his residence overlooking the lake.
