In addition to its scenery and monuments, the Mugello area is famous for its ood products, such as honey, chestnuts, extra virgin olive oil, potato ravioli and mushrooms. But above all the flagship is milk, also known as “white gold”. Its simplicity and purity come from good farming practices: cows are only allowed to graze in controlled and safe areas. The best local companies and farms that furnish the central dairies of Florence, Livorno and Pistoia are part of an itinerary called the “Milk Route” (La Via del Latte), which runs through Firenzuola, San Piero a Sieve, Borgo San Lorenzo, Scarperia, Vicchio and Barberino del Mugello. The route allows visitors to learn step by step the stages of milking and milk processing. Following this tour, marked by special brown roadsigns along the streets of the Mugello, you can combine a learning activity with a taste experience.
