Description

Trek  to the ghost village in the mountainous area of ​​Mugello and discover a natural environment that’s rich in history.

Join this adventurous hike, exploring the abandoned train station and quarry, with their charming railway into the wood, and if you're brave walk through the abandoned tunnel.
Enjoy typical Tuscan food and wine surrounded by the beauty of nature.

Walk among the olive, apple and cherry trees, and climb the hilly landscape for a bird’s eye view overlooking the woods. There are many vantage points for a spectacular view, overlooking both the Apennine ridge and the Faentina railway on the valley floor.
The old quarry , surrounded by the beauty of the nature, is the perfect location to relax and enjoy typical Tuscan food and wine, before start the return to the valley.

The Apennines is a mountain range that stretches from the north to the south of Italy. It crosses through Mugello, enriching the town with its incredible mountainous landscape.

The trekking path has been part of the area’s main road network since Etruscan times, located between central Italy and the Lombardy plain. The area was used primarily by the Etruscans to connect the towns of Fiesole and Felsina (Bologna). It was then populated by the Romans, and in the Medieval times was home to Tuscany’s noble Count Guidi, It remained inhabited by farming families until the 1960s.

This excursion through the woods is therefore a journey between past and present. Signs of early human inhabitants are still evident in the form of old houses and established streets, but the now abandoned space is simply a reminder of the life that was.

From 80€
