I'm an Environmental Guide Hiker for over 3 years, I love this land and I know its history, culture and traditions. The Balze del Valdarno have fascinated me since I was a child, I grew up in the middle, seeing them has always evoked images from prehistory and ancestral stories of men who populated these lands thousands of years ago. Growing up, I learned to appreciate their historical and geological side, documenting on their origin and their relationship with man, now I am ready to share my experience with those who, like me, love to walk in nature trying to always understand a little more.

Where you'll be

The beautiful “città murata” of Castelfranco di Sopra, founded in 1299, is fulcrum of our path. Our path winds through one of the most spectacular parts of ANPIL Le Balze: Located on the slopes of the Pratomagno. we will descend to the base of the flounces through a gorge, we will visit the small village of Piantravigne perched on a pinnacle like an eagle's nest, we will return to the starting point through another path surrounded by greenery.

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.
