Hiking in the mountains
Many hiking trails are part of the natural heritage of our stretch of the Tuscan Apennines.
Excursions and trekking on marked and unmarked paths, through forests of multiple tree essences (chestnuts, oaks, beeches, conifers) that connect medieval villages rich in history.
The paths we suggest can be traveled all year round independently or with hiking and environmental guides who, in addition to accompanying you, will be able to tell the story, traditions and anecdotes that characterize the area.
