Ponte Sospeso (Suspension Bridge) and Calci



A Carthusian monastry located in Calci, a village half-way between Pisa and Lucca, beautifully positioned in a valley of olive trees and cypresses.  It isn’t just a boring Monastry because there is an amazing museum of natural science for the delight of children and adults alike.  In the tactile room you can touch animals and a new area is dedicated to the evolution of Man.


This is one of the longest suspension footbridges in the world and is 220 metres long and about 1 metre wide with a height of 40 metres at the point of greatest height.  Today the bridge represents an important tourist attraction, but originally it was an important shortcut for the workers living on each side of the valley.  Under  a hour away from Celle, this is a lovely day out.  There are open spaces for picnics or recreation,  and for those of you who enjoy fishing, also a lake with a cafe.
