Trips in the Casentino Valley in Tuscany

The following are some of the top itineraries we would suggest you in our wonderful valley:

1. From Poppi (the magnificent castle of the XII century, the picturesque village with medieval arcades and the largest Romanesque church in Casentino, the Abbey of San Fedele) to the hamlet of Badia Prataglia (the church with itís crypt of the 8th century and the visitors center of the National Park) and then to Camaldoli, the mother house of the Camaldolite Order (Monastery and Hermitage of the 11th century). A short walk through the centuries-old silver fir-wood is recommended.

2. From the small town of Bibbiena (Sanctuary of Santa Maria del Sasso in Renaissance style) on a scenic road to Chiusi della Verna and to the well known Sanctuary of La Verna where St. Francis of Assisi received the Stigmata. Here we recommend a short hike to Monte Penna, an excellent viewpoint in a mixed forest of unique value.

3. From Stia (interactive Woolen Mill Museum, Parish Church Santa Maria with Andrea della Robbia Terracotta) up to the palatial tower of the Porciano Castle (11th century), then down to Santa Maria delle Grazie (Sanctuary of the 15th century). Nearby the ancient water mill (13th century) of Bucchio with an interesting trout breeding.

4. Definitely to be recommended is a tour to the numerous small eco-museums of local history along the valley, among which the ones about wool, smuggling, chestnuts, water and rural culture.

We are glad to give you all the information you need!
