Lizards and nightingales, but also beech martens, weasels and even foxes: in spring the Walls of Pisa come alive not only with visitors walking along the high walkway to admire the city's architectural and scenic beauty, but also with small animals that find a special habitat at these heights, an ecological corridor in the centre.
After the success of the first edition, the naturalistic visits dedicated to the natural or semi-natural micro-environments along the Walls are back, with observation of rocks, plants and animals, listening to bird songs and examining animal tracks.
The spring appointment will take place on Sunday 21 May 2023 with departure at 4.30 p.m. from the Torre di Legno and conclusion at 6.30 p.m. with sunset over Piazza dei Miracoli. In case of bad weather the visit will be postponed to Sunday 28 May.
The visits are organised by the Museum of Natural History of the University of Pisa, in collaboration with CoopCulture, Cooperativa Itinera and Promocultura, the association of companies that manages the high altitude walkway of the Ancient Walls of Pisa. The initiative is the result of the collaboration between the Walls and the Museum, which also includes cross-discounts for people visiting both sites during normal opening hours.
Information and bookings: meeting at 4:30 pm at the Torre di Legno (Piazza Federico del Rosso, 3) and ending at approximately 6:30 pm in Piazza dei Miracoli. Maximum 20 participants. Comfortable shoes, water, hat and binoculars are recommended.
