    The Carthusian Monastery of Pisa

    The Chartreuse of Pisa, located in Calci, is a wide monumental building raised in the Monte Pisano hillside, just a few km from the town. Founded in 1366 by a group of Carthusian monks, the building has been enlarged between the XVII and the XVIII century and now appears as a marvellous baroque monument set into an evocative landscape.
    Nowadays the Chartreus hires two different Museum; the National Museul of the Monumental Chartreuse of Calci and the Natural History Museum of the University of Pisa.

    A spectacular show!

    47th exhibition-market San Miniato white truffle

    The historic center of San Miniato dates back to the VIII century and still preserves authentic and beautiful details of all its history.

    For over a century San Miniato trufflers go out during the night with their dogs and walk through hidden paths, trying to find the precious tuber.

    Over the years the festival has become an international exhibition that today attracts thousands of Italian and foreign visitors.

    Together with the White Truffle, which is the star, you can taste many local products such as cheeses, meats, honey, extra-vergin olive oil, wine and jams walking the little streets of the village and you certainly will enjoy the real Tuscan country life.

    Luminara di San Ranieri – Pisa

    The “Luminara” is a special celebration that takes place every year in Pisa on the evening of June 16th: the eve of St. Ranieri, patron of the city.
    Each year about 100,000 candles are placed on wooden frames and they draw the architectural forms of churches, palaces and towers of the riversides.
    Then other floating candles are put into the river Arno, and with the public lighting off, they offer a really suggestive atmosphere.
    For many years, the evening ends with a series of fireworks around midnight.

    Not to miss!
