I’m an Environmental Hiker Guide for over 4 years, but for more than 15 I have also been the companion of a good and passionate painter. What better opportunity then? The Balze del Valdarno have fascinated humans since prehistoric times, weaving ancestral stories of men and women who populated these lands thousands of years ago. Growing up, I learned to appreciate their historical and geological side, documenting their formation and their relationship with man, now I am ready to share my experience, together with Valentina, a skilled artist who will help you transpose yours on the canvas. personal vision of the flounces.

Where you'll be

The beautiful "walled city" of Castelfranco di Sopra, founded in 1299, is the fulcrum of our journey.
Our route winds through one of the most spectacular parts of ANPIL Le Balze: located on the slopes of Pratomagno. we will go down to the base of the crags through a gorge. Once we reach the valley floor, we will be joined by Valentina, equipped with canvases and colors, who will guide us in the realization of your personal memory of this trip

The Balze di Valdarno are a magical spot immersed in beautiful nature and off the beaten track. Booking this experience with Federigo gave us access to this extraordinary place which we didn't know about. The walk was simply wonderful and paired with Federigo's knowledge and insightful comments, a new world opened up for us. We enjoy nature walks and this one was one of the best we have done in a long time, it goes through medieval villages worth a visit, along a stream and through woods and passed pastures. Federigo gave us great information about the geology and history of the area and pointed out great views, plants, animal tracks and other things noteworthy. Federigo is an expert guide and very welcoming and accommodating. He picked us up at the train station, brought us to the trail head and back to the train station. We highly recommend this experience to anybody interested in nature, in learning about the history of the Valdarno or simply ready for a break from the city. You will not be disappointed. Bring water, a snack to eat while on the go, sun lotion and a camera - there are plenty of great photo opportunities.
