There are approximately 6 hours of walking time per day. Therefore, some training is required. It can be considered a preparation trek for walks of several days. The itinerary that connected Florence (Fiesole) to the area of Bologna, since Etruscan times and then later during the Middle Ages, crossed the Mugello and from San Piero a Sieve reached Sant'Agata, the small village with the majestic Romanesque parish church. The main route climbed up towards the castle of Montaccianico, stronghold of the Ubaldini family, and then continued until it reached the Passo della Vecchia, west of Mount Castel Guerrino, then descended to the village of Corniolo and from here to Cornacchiaia where there is the Parish Church of San Giovanni, twin and contemporary to that of Sant'Agata. This route then continued towards Pietramala, to then descend along the Idice valley as far as the Emilian plain. A variant of this itinerary, probably more recent, is the one that instead crosses the Apennine ridge at the Osteria Bruciata pass. This is the route we will take on the second day, to return from Firenzuola to Sant'Agata.
The price €25 is per person.
