From the seaside to the hillside, from one Tuscan city to another: by year's end Lucca and Pisa will be connected by the longest bike path in Tuscany, measuring 45 kilometres when it's finished by year's end. Cyclists can pedal from Pisa along the Serchio River, passing through Lake Massaciuccoli to Lucca's medieval walls and bastions. With the latest phase of works completed in mid-March, the path is named after Lucca-born composer, Giacomo Puccini. The new bike path, which cost 500,000 euro when finished, is the latest project in a series that seeks to increase environmentally sustainable tourism in the region.
