Discover Mugello Train & Trek

1st day: from Vaglia to Borgo San Lorenzo

Meeting point at the station of Vaglia around 10.00 am ready to start enjoying the lights and feelings that the countryside and the forest give back to the walker. This excursion will be more pleasant thanks to the story of the historical and naturalistic aspects of the territory of Vaglia, on a short stretch of the Via degli Dei, and at sunset a beautiful walk will turn into a deep sensory experience. In addition to the myths and legends that make the history of the Badia del Buonsollazzo, we will immerse ourselves in popular beliefs and traditions that attribute to spring and summer plants and flowers a symbolic value. The place is perfect for a picnic based on local products, to be consumed until the last ray of sunshine. Return by train for dinner and overnight in Scarperia and San Piero a Sieve.


2nd day: Churches and farms, jewels and knowledge – Mugello Rural Trek

Where the Apennines and Mugello embrace the Via degli Dei. With this excursion we will take a dip in the green Mugello, walking on trails, dirt tracks and short stretches of asphalt in the typical Apennine environment, alternating with waves of harmonious hills in which the work of man is perfectly linked to that of nature. The magnificent ancient village of Sant'Agata del Mugello welcomes us with its history linked to the transapennine road that has its roots in the land of Liguri Magelli, Etruscan, Roman and rich feudal families, with its palaces, tabernacles and its magnificent Pieve. After a lunch in a typical village locanda, we will continue our journey towards the convent of Bosco ai Frati, a settlement founded by the Ubaldini Family and then the seat of the Franciscans in which a wooden Christ by Donatello is kept. Return by train for dinner and overnight in Borgo San Lorenzo.


3rd day: Borgo San Lorenzo Liberty Urban Trek – ceramics and beauty from Borgo to Mugello, to the ends of the world

An excursion in and around a village located in the middle of Mugello rich in the history of the art of floral style, the Liberty. The path will lead us to know the presence of ceramics and artistic inspirations natural and floral, stories of multifaceted artists who have made beautiful Mugello and Italian cities (and not only) in the wake of a modern artistic movement, Liberty, based on elements of the natural environment. An intense dialogue between nature and art, of which the representatives of the Chini family were illustrious witnesses. Lunch in a typical locanda of the village, based on cheeses, coldcuts and wines from Mugello and Tuscany. At the end of the tour it will be possible to practice in the shape of a clay object in a characteristic artistic workshop of the master potter Luca Canavicchio or visit the factory of contemporary production of the Chini-Pecchioli, a tradition that is still active in the manufacture of tiles embellished with the famous "ceramic lusters". End of the Tour in the afternoon.
In collaboration with environmental guide Elena Beleffi, Terrae Trekking.
