About the neighbourhood
Montefoscoli is ideally situated close to the must see Tuscan sites such as Pisa, Lucca. Florence and San Gimignano. It is also situated on the wine route close to many vineyards where we can organise a wine tour to one of the many family run wineries. In the village there is one pizzeria/restaurant, village bar, a grocery store and bakers. There are many restaurants and bars in the nearby villages of Peccioli 7.2 Kilometers and Palaia 5 Kilometers Pisa - with its Leaning tower 40 km Lucca - beautiful Medieavl walled city 40km San Gimignano - Tuscan hilltop town 35km Florence - with its famous galleries 65km Volterra - beautiful hilltop town 25km Siena - fascinating Medieval town 55km Beaches and coast 40km
Getting around
To get the most out of the area we do recommend a rental car, especially if you would like to explore the hill top towns and countryside. Eating out options in the villages are limited and we recommend you try the restaurants in Peccioli and Palaia. Buses are available from the village during the daytime to the town of Pontedera. The journey takes just under one hour. From Pontedera you can get trains to Florence and Pisa.
