Our journey starts from Fucecchio, at the foot of Montalbano, one of the stages of the Via Francigena. Here, we visit Palazzo Corsini which hosts the Civic Museum, to get to know the history of this territory, its past and present times. If you love hiking in nature, you can follow the route of the pilgrims of the past, walking the Via Francigena until the Padule di Fuccechio, the largest inland marshland in Italy. You can cover this itinerary on foot or by boat, renting the traditional barchini to enjoy the beauty of the local fauna and flora.
In the afternoon, we visit the small village of Cerreto Guidi, dominated by the Medici Villa, a historic summer residence of the Medici family and today a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At the end of the day, we visit the spectacular 32-yard miniature, made by the “Crochet Dames” who reproduced the landscape between Cerreto Guidi and Vinci.
