Hello my Stemians friends!
I'd like show you in this last part some path photos that I did when I visited the fortress, and some options that you can do it to visit it.
There are fours routs (that I know) to get there:
- In the Caprona's Town: behind the Caprona's tower from westside there is a road partially driveway.
- In the Uliveto Terme's Town: on the west flank of Mount Verruca, behind the quarries of Uliveto Terme's town there is a walking trail.
- In the Vicopisano's Town: This is the most longer rout and totaly driveway, and starts Vicopisano est. You must have of a comunity permesio to drive in this road.
- Nicosia's Convent - Calci's Valley Town: I did this last one , and I walked in a path about one and half hour.
What I recommend if you choose the Nicosia's path:
You can ask a map in the Calci's community with all the region's path, which includes the Verruca's Fortress path. It's free.
To guide if you must follow the signs with two stripes - white and red - that you'll find along the path.

Nowadays the Calci's Association called " Compagnia di Calci" take care the Verruca's Fortress and of the other Pisa's region places.
