What you'll do
We drive from Florence to a very hidden village in the chianti area. after we leave the car we start our journey through the misteries of one of the oldest paths in Tuscany. Passing through abandoned abbeys, ancient sanctuaries, old abandoned castles and old houses in the forest that were partizans headquarters during the war. We stop at one of these places to have a typical tuscan outdoor lunch with some good local red wine and to rest a bit just contempling the silence of those ancient places. I really love to talk about the history of these wild places and about how the people that crossed those paths are actually the mirror of the social and historical changing not only in Tuscany but in all Italy. At the end of the tour we can drive back to Florence admiring the unique chianti sunsets from my car. Rarely even tuscanian people know and walk in these really wild places because hiking tours usually prefer more known places. But I really think that these places are the very soul of Tuscany.
Hello my name is Giordano, I'm 26 and I grew up in the hills, forests and mountains near Florence. I love to explore the nature and the history hidden in those ancient hills since I was a kid with other friends or just with my dog. I use to spend all my free time in the nature, expecially in all the ancient paths that are full of history. From the ancient Romans to the Middle ages monks to the antifascist partizans a lot of men, women and ideas crossed those old roads and all of them virtus, histories and philosophy in a way or another remained on the paths, the old buildings and the nature
I will provide to a typical tuscanian outdoor lunch. Obviously with some local red wine.
