With forests, chestnuts, mills and historic mule tracks, hikers will enjoy walking along these shady and fresh hiking trails in the chestnut forest of Garfagnana. DOP chestnut flour, IGP spelt, honey and porcini mushrooms are just some of the ingredients in the typical and genuine cuisine here, which is traditionally simple and filling.
This imaginary journey ends with the Apennine hiking trails, where, at one time straight and at one time twisted, the ancient incomparably-beautiful forests survive in the chestnut groves of the Amiata. Here, rites and customs that have survived the changing of time are at the origin of the IGP Chestnut of Mount Amiata.
It’s true: amongst the countryside distinguished for the elegant geometry of its vineyards and of the hills covered in ears of wheat, or the shady and hidden Apennine woods, you can walk around in a kaleidoscope of ever-changing senses and emotions.
