Marina di Pisa

Marina di Pisa is a hamlet of Pisa, and rises to south of the mouth of the river Arno. In 1606 Marina di Pisa did not exist: the area was swampy and insane. That was the year in which Ferdinando 1 de'Medici decided to move the mouth of Arno approximately 1500 meters north. Near the mouth of the river, after such modification, was built a hexagonal construction with a moat, called "il Fortino", which was the custom for the fluvial traffic. Surrounding this construction were built the first houses, that were the original nucleus of Marina di Pisa. Travelling from Pisa to Marina di Pisa, along D'Annunzio Avenue, approximately half distance between Pisa and Marina di Pisa, near San Piero a Grado, is noteworthy the evocative basilica of San Piero, risen in proximity of an ancient port near the river; according to tradition, the building was desired by Saint Peter himself. The locality offers a calm and comfortable stay: the beaches are sandy, the limpid sea, the Mediterranean climate... behind the town there is a beautiful pine wood, and to Bocca d'Arno you can taste the eels of the river.
