Ecologically sustainable, carbon neutral mobility service, organized in urban areas.
Pedicab Pisa Ecotour is an initiative aimed to the promotion of the discovery of the city by an ecologically sustainable, carbon neutral vehicle: the rickshaw, or pedicab.
For the whole pre-established paths, planned as City Sightseeings Hop On Hop Off, a street artist (the rickshaw driver), entertains tourists on board telling about curiosities, myths, legends, anecdotes of the city and its typical products. Discover the details..
The rickshaw, also known as pedicab or risciò, is a three-wheels velocipede: a high-technological tricycle provided with gears, similar to a mountain-bike's.
A simple and safe mean to make relaxing ecological tours through the whole historical centre.
A unique way to discover the more suggestive streets and places of the city, promoting ecologically sustainable tourism and mobility and proposing pre-established entertaining itineraries discovering History, Art, Handicraft, Food and Wine of Pisa.
The best way to visit the city through unusual perspectives. Special for a quick but comprehensive sight-seeing tour.
Original to plunge into the Art of Pisa. Surprising to live romantic emotions. Unique to move without polluting! Differently tourists: Pedicab Pisa offers also specific services for disable people with motor difficulties, elderly people or children, in order to make the city more accessible to anyone, either in spare time or in daily activities as doing commissions or shopping.
Pisa is not just the Leaning Tower! On board of PedicabPisa you will discover hidden treasures, mhyts, legends, illustrous personalitie's legacy and the best production of Food and Wine of the city.
Supporting our campaign, you will contribute to the purchase of new cabs, the maintenance of our first cab "Betsy", the rent of a garage for our bikes (our dream is to create a little PedicabPisa station) and the printing of our book "Pisa, a Time-travel", which gathers our itineraries through mysteries, historyical testimonies and the best enogastronomic products of the city.
The book was conceived as an itinerary with stops (the same route we propose on board of our rickshaw) aimed to the discovery of ancient testimonies and monuments hidden around the historical centre of Pisa, interlaced with pages about curiosities, legends and illustrious personalities of the city history. The route starts from Piazza dei Miracoli/Via Santa Maria and winds its way alternatively through the squares and attractions set in the main streets (from the native home of Galileo to the “Bagni di Nerone”, from the houses of Lord Byron and Mary Shelley, to Bastione San Gallo) and the more obscure corners of the centre, more difficult to discover (from the house of “the last executioner of Pisa” to San Paolo a Ripa d'Arno Church) passing through mysterious carved symbols hidden -sometimes in plain sight- in the side-roads.
Along with our cultural itinerary, the book proposes an eno-gastronomic itinerary where restaurants and activities of the centre will present a selection of their best food and wine production, as well as typical products of the tradition of Pisa.

Project created by
Pedicab Pisa EcoTour
I am the first Pedicab driver in the city of the Leaning Tower. Three years ago, with the help of my photographer friend Gianni, I started the first Eco-Tour project in my city: Pedicab Pisa. Despite the enthusiastic support of thousands of tourists who tried our service, of our fellow citizens and even of the press, our project is at risk. We are trying to create an occupation for ourselves and others proposing an ecological way to live the city.
