What people are saying about Pisa

This may have been my favorite thing to do in Italy! The path was clear (make sure you have enough power for your phone) and it ran along the river and through 2 small towns before getting to Pisa. Make sure everything on your bike is working before you get too far from the shop.

Bike was easy to use and the electric assist was great. The route is more complicated than I expected, but the app they provide and a good attitude will get you there. Overall, nice way to see good views and enjoy a change of pace activity.
