Our tour twists and turns through the heart of the Valdambra, just a few steps away from Bucine. The route starts at the entrance to San Martino and follows the signs of the CAI 47 trail.
From here, begin a climb in the woods which has some fairly steep sections; at the Casucci crossroads, as there’s no need to lengthen the route, go up the road on the right following the CAI 47a signs. Go around a small hill, on top of which there is a farmhouse protected by a long fence, descend a cart track which comes from Montebenichi and joins up with the CAI 47.
Turn right onto an old ridge road which connects the Valdambra to the Chianti, and previously linked the Etruria coastline with the inland.
Near the Monte della Via farm you can admire Cennina and Duddova against a backdrop of the Pratomagno, tinged with shades of blue and green.
