Spring hike in the hills of the Arno Valley

Vicolo dei Berignoli 5 - 52017 Stia (AR) - Italy

A day dedicated entirely to the mountains of the Apennines, the one where Arno river flows, the ones sacred to the Etruscans, the ones that were of guidingo domain, the religious ones and the ones of the forests that have heated up and fed whole generations.

There is something for every taste! And it will also be a way to celebrate the arrival of spring delighting your palate with the flavors of our mountains.

Our day will begin with a meeting of the participants at the Museum of the Wood and the Mountain, in Stia, and will be an opportunity for a guided tour of the collections contained in it, and then we'll leave for the Castle of Porciano, guidingo manor overlooking the village of Stia. So we start our hilly hike: will then proceed towards the Sanctuary of Santa Maria delle Grazie, Renaissance jewel hidden among the woods of the Arno valley, to arrive then in Molin di Bucchio, first mill on the river and destination for our tasty snack.

The ingredients are all there, absolutely everyone, for lovers of the natural-historical/archaeological trekking, what we call Archeotrekking :)

And even if this will be your first hike experience, we are sure you'll be thrilled!
