Emotions in the Tuscan mountains

CAI mountain refuges offer an array of nature and culinary delights

The mountains of Tuscany offer a world of freedom—nature and breathtaking views make this corner of paradise unique and special. Sports lovers in particular will delight in hiking the area’s most enchanted paths. Spring and summer are the best times to get away from the chaos of the city and immerse yourself in the silence and simplicity that distinguish this area.

The Appennines and Apuan Alps offer numerous Club Alpino Italiano (CAI) trails leading to the most beautiful peaks and characteristic refuges where visitors can find a convivial atmosphere as hikers come together to relax and enjoy a good meal after a long day. Mountain refuges are famous for the genuine recipes they prepare for visitors—recipes that have almost been forgotten are revived in these mountain hideaways.

The Lunigiana, Garfagnana, Amiata and Montagna Pistoiese have much to offer all year long—including skiing, sports, natural parks, medieval villages and more.

Lovers of hiking, cross-country skiing and untouched nature will find an oasis where “wellbeing” really counts. Before taking off, it is prudent to contact CAI for a list of refuges, safety guidelines and other detailed information.
