The itinerary starts from the Romanesque church of St. John the Baptist and St. Stephen, the so-called Pieve di Camaiore, where there is a convenient parking and a rustic bar for coffee prior to departure and a shop.

Pieve di Camaiore

The route is first on asphalt road and climbs up the hill and follow the paved road (with little traffic) to Agliano, then plunges into the natural path for the longest stretch (1.50 hours). Once in Agliano worth making an excursion to the village of Peralla before continuing to Torcigliano; the view from the terrace is breathtaking, here it is easy to meet other travelers.

The Eco-friendly Stay recommende:

Villa Gaia is the perfect place to relax after the trekking, among the hills of Camaiore, in the heart of Tuscany. The old stone houses have been restored with attention to ecology and ecological design. The energy is clean. The orchard and olive grove offer excellent organic and local products.

You can enjoy the beautiful garden with magnificent views of the Versilia, or in the swimming pool among the olive trees.
