Silvia

I love chestnut forest and its fruits. I dedicated my study to this tree, I lived in a shelt to dry chestnut (metato) and in a mill, I collect chestnuts to produce sweet flour, as the elder people of the village taught me. I love sharing these knowledge with those who are curious to discover, and for this reason I became environmental guide and Apuane Park's guide

More tips

The way is simple, suitable even for children, but you must walk on stone mule tracks with uphill and downhill sections. In case of rain, the path becomes particularly slippery
