An itinerary for hiking enthusiasts through the hills of Prato
Discover the history of the Valle di Bisenzio

A short distance from Prato, with its churches and medieval and Renaissance palaces, is a landscape abundant with trails for hiking and mountain biking, where you can rediscover the ancient bond that has connected man and nature for as long as time itself. There are multiple sports and outdoor activities to try on the over 500 kilometres of equipped trails through forests, hills and small rural villages, as well as the 53 kilometres of bike paths in Prato.

With this itinerary, we’ll discover the Valle di Bisenzio, rich in natural beauty and historical and cultural patrimony. In particular, we’ll visit the Calvana mountain range, which offers panoramic views and a string of small villages, each with their own heritage of art and traditions. The difficulty level of the hike is average and can be done both on foot and by bike. Access to the route is near the SS325 in the Val Bisenzio. Given the lack of fountains along the way, it’s recommended that you bring water with you.
