Through this hiking experience you will discover the suggestive Pratomagno Mountain, northwest of the wonderful city of Arezzo, separating two valleys: the Valdarno and the Casentino. Starting point: Rocca Ricciarda, a stone village with an intact charm, embellished by the remains of an ancient castle, perched right on the slope at the peak of which stands the goal of our hike, already visible from below: the top of the Pratomagno Mountain. After a hard climb, cheered by the beauty all around, the transition to a different state takes place: how to describe the emotion that pervades us when we reach that incredible and green ridge suspended between the Valdarno and the Casentino? Feelings of flying, touching the clouds, being able to run forever ... maybe it's called just happiness!
You will meet your tour guide in the village of Loro Ciuffenna and you will have the possibility to refresh yourself, and to buy local products for your picnic or just a panino before your tour beginning.
