Walking and Biking



Monte Verruca

On the Monti Pisani

Along the ascent and subsequent descent of Monte Verruca it is possible to see, on the summit of the mountain, the Fortezza della Verruca, a defensive fortification which played a key role in the fifteenth and sixteenth century wars between Pisa and Firenze. As you descend you come across the statues of Monte Verruca, marble works which probably came from the nearby fortress. Note that although the unpaved track coming down the mountain is very wide and its bends are good fun, it should be approached with care because the stone surface is treacherous and slippery.
