Hop on your mountain bike or e-bike in Lucca and follow the directions provided by a useful app to reach the Oasis of Massaciuccoli. Live an amazing outdoor experience in an area protected by LIPU (Italian League for Bird Protection), an oasis of peace and biodiversity on the eastern shore of Lake Massaciuccoli and one of the most beautiful places in Italy for birdwatching.
Take in the view of the natural beauties that you'll find along the way, cycling mainly on dirt, flat and well-maintained roads, and walking on the 700-meter long wooden walkway built on stilts in the wet area of the reserve, which is home to many species in all seasons.
After visiting the Roman ruins of Massaciuccoli, you can return either via a flat road or by climbing the hill behind the oasis, from which you can enjoy breathtaking views of the lake up to the coast. If you are tired you can decide to take the local train to Lucca from the station located just 4 km from the oasis.
