The best routes for trekking in Tuscany

Trekking in Tuscany: routes between Florence, Prato and Siena

A classic trekking route is Tuscany is that through the mountain above the city of Florence, Monte Morello. Starting from the refuge Gualdo walk along the path uphill to the junction of the Fonte del Ciliegio. Here take the path named CAI 10, which, after a while walking uphill through fields and woods of conifers up to Poggio dell’Aia (934 meters) there is a wooden cross. Continue on the path CAI 00, which first descends, then climbs through the pines until you arrive at Cornacchiaia Poggio; from here you can reach (uphill) Poggio Casaccia, where there is a metal cross visible from Florence from where you will enjoy magnificent views of the city.

Tuscany and its beautiful natural environment offers many opportunities for wonderful and unforgettable trekking tours.

Another route in the Tuscan area, starts from the Castagno d'Andrea in Casentino from Fonte del Borbotto (1200 meters). From here the trail starts uphill CAI 17 which, through a forest of beech trees leads to the gate of Crocicchie (1406 meters) where you enter the CAI 00, which leads to Mount Falterona. From here continue downwards to reach the fields overlooking the Arno source, where there is a plaque with verses dedicated by Dante to the river in his Divine Comedy. From Filettole near Prato, following the signposted 40 CAI, after passing Carteano, follow the trail uphill, along the valley of the Rio Buti, passing vast forests of holm oaks. Arriving at Sella di Valibona, at an altitude of 328 m. With only a small deviation you can reach the caves of Rio Buti, following the trail 40 / P.

Another trekking route in Tuscany begins in Pian Salada (Siena) starting in a street with a small cross. Walk along an uphill path that leads to the empty houses of Pian della Spina along the road that leads uphill to the ruins of Casa Castagneto, with the striking hollow and twisted maple trunk. Continue on the main path until reaching a path marked with white-red signs. Turning left you climb up to the farm Caggio; past an old tank, taking the path that goes down with steep hairpin bends before recovering. Turning left in an old medieval road, we reach the village of Castelvecchio, with its ancient ruins.

Trekking in Tuscany: Garfagnana and Lunigiana

Trekking in Garfagnana is a fascinating experience; you’ll walk through a scenic valley offering great diversity and contrast between the Alps and Apennines. A first trekking route into the area starts from Castelnuovo to reach the fortress of Monte Alfonso; it is a path where one encounters cultivated terraces, and psses a chestnut wood to reach the fortress. Another good route would be to go trekking in the Orecchiella Park where you can admire, in enclosures, deer, mouflon and bears, the main attraction of the park. The trekking route passes from the Isera refuge and will take you along a path beside the river, in Pruno. Continue down a path that leads to the terraced mountains of the Pania of Corfino. Near a large boulder on the left bend take the path CAI 58, until reaching the majesty of San Pellegrino where you may see or meet even, the Alpine shepherds known as Campaiana.
In Lunigiana there is a trekking tour consisting of 14 different major routes (between 10 and 20 km long) through unspoilt beautiful landscapes featuring castles, churches and mills. The circuit is spread over 200 km and is marked with white and red arrows and a triangle with the initials "TL"; the roads go along the river Magra between Aulla and Fosdinovo, between Tresana and Montereggio between Sassalbo and Casola.
