Many sailing trips

Many sailing trips, featuring different routes and schedules, are available for booking. One of the most interesting tours, planned to the smallest detail by the Salvapiano resort in collaboration with the nautical Tutun Club of San Vincenzo, is the one called “The greeting to the Sailor”, for four people and lasting a few hours.
It sets off from the small dock of Stellino, also known as Torre Nuova or Torraccia, from the names of the two towers that shape the landscape of the area. La Torraccia, on Via della Principessa that leads to the Baratti Gulf, was part of a stronghold built by the Republic of Pisa, while Cosimo III of the Medici family built Torre Nuova, a bit further to the south. The Stellino area enjoys a well-deserved reputation for being particularly rich in sealife. Many snorkeling aficionados describe this bay as paradise on earth, since the quantity and biodiversity of fish species is truly remarkable.

Un saluto a ``Il Marinaio``

Our sailing tour will eventually lead us to the large San Vincenzo Harbor. Here we can find out the origins of this tour’s name. The Sailor is a bronze sculpture created by Giampaolo Talani. Standing tall at 7 meters (23 feet), this statue depicts a sailor staring at the sea with a thoughtful look and it sets a unique record: it is the largest sculpture located in a European port.
Talani lets the Sailor tell us his own story: “I survey the waves, which like endless jazz music, repeat over and over but never the same from this seaport.”
This artwork means much more for its author: the sea is life itself and the man represents all of us looking towards the future, filled with hope.

We mentioned the departure from Stellino and the arrival in San Vincenzo. Along the journey between them, you will enjoy the sea, the wind, the sounds of the sea and the beautiful panorama, featuring the faraway coast and the never-ending horizon.
