Cinque Terre Day Trip

Since ancient times the thermal waters flowing from the depths of San Giuliano Terme were appreciated for their healing properties and functions. Enjoyed first by the Etruscans and the Romans, and then by the Medici family, the Bagni di Pisa (Pisa Hot Springs) rose to fame in 1743 when the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Francis Stephen of Lorraine, built his summer spa residence there. Bagni di Pisa has reacquired its ancient glamour, thanks to skilled maintenance works, which restored the architecture, frescoes, vaults and marbles to their original beauty, rendering them an integral part of its revitalizing programs.
Pietrasanta Artist village
Enjoy a night out in the colouful artist’s village of Pietrasanta, a thriving art center full of galleries, shops and restaurants spilling onto the pavements.

The town comes alive around 10pm we’ll be visiting in the early evening and staying until late so you can be part of the action. (Dinner not included).
