To visit Vicopisano is like stepping back in time with hidden lanes and ancient piazzas revealing Medieval tower houses and terraced gardens. In the centre of the village perched on a hill is the Medieval fortress and watchtower designed by the Renaissance master architect Filippo Brunelleschi.

For a small fee the fortress is open to visitors at the weekends. In addition to Medieval ruins and a characteristic historic centre, Vicopisano is still an authentic working town inhabited by local families.

This is a place to sip a cappuccino with a local and watch the world go by at one of the village bars. Visitors will love to shop in a small village store or at the weekly farmer’s market. Fresh bread can be bought daily from the baker and a gelato (ice cream) shop serves artisan ice cream.
