Selva will walk you through the Arno valleys and, after a first stop to detect Apuane and Appennini alps, will show you San Miniato and the delights of its local tasting

The walk will start from Selva and proceed along the ancient Via Francigena that dominates the Arno and Elsa valleys from North-East. In limpid days the sky will offer you the amazing sight of Appennini and Apuane alps and of the hills designed by the Egola river. Following a country lane among olive trees, vineyards, and groves you will reach San Miniato, where you will be delighted to visit the Bishop Seminary Square, the Cathedral and Federico II Rock. If you like it, you could decide to stay for lunch, tasting the famous white truffle and other typical local food. You will have a car at your disposal to go back to Selva.
