Tirrenia and surroundings

Let's get started with a curiosity: Tirrenia, despite its name, is not washed by the Tyrrhenian Sea but from the Ligurian Sea.

Located inside the Natural Park of St. Rossore, Migliarino and Massaciuccoli, right on the border between the provinces of Pisa and Livorno, this popular seaside resort surrounded by the large pine trees and the Mediterranean brush of Tombolo Estate is an area of great naturalistic interest.

The strand’s conformation makes the attendance of its beach suitable for families with children looking for a safe environment, bathing facilities and hotels able to ensure all services.

Yet this pleasant environment up to the thirties of the twentieth century was actually a swampy area abandoned since the Middle Ages, when the silting up of the port of Pisa decreed its decline.

In those years Tirrenia was at the core of Italian cultural life to have seen the birth of the first movie studios in the Hollywood-style: the so-called Pisorno Studies (crasis between Pisa and Livorno) which later became Tirrenia Film.

From 1934 to 1937, from Tirrenia passed the most important actors of the star system, then the birth of Cinecittà and the more convenience of the capital ended up eclipsing a center of film production with an instrumentation ahead of his time .

The geographical position of the city is not to be less than its natural value and cultural proximity to major road networks, ports and airports in Tuscany bring the focus of an infrastructure system that allows you to quickly reach the main attractions of the region .

The main art cities such as Pisa, Lucca, Volterra, Siena and Florence are within easy reach in less than an hour, as well as the most beautiful islands of the Tuscan archipelago.
