The channels around the bog were digged during several reclamation attempts in the last centuries


Bird watching in the Marsh of Fucecchio

Near Vinci there is one of the most important boggy districts of the whole Tuscan territory called the Padule di Fucecchio. It is a vast wet area formed by some tributaries of the river Arno and at present it is park of such utmost beauty that a safeguard plan is being worked out to turn it into a Natural Reserve. The area is rich in rare plants and wildlife such as several species of water-lilies, small carnivorous plants, herons, cranes and black storks. Foresters count more than 150 species of birds. It is a downright paradise for lovers of nature and bird watching. Visiting the park with one of our specialized naturalistic guides is an amazing experience!
