Half-day guided trekking tour of Colle Valdelsa and its surroundings

You meet our experienced English speaking nature guide in Colle Valdelsa, a town famous for its crystal manufacture, in Piazza Arnolfo di Cambio, in front of the monument dedicated to the sculptor and architect. Together we comfortably walk along the riverbed of the Elsa, enjoying enchanting landscapes among pools of clear water, populated by a rich fauna, which reaches even the town. You will get to know how this river made the fortune of this area as you admire the wildlife and the colorful vegetation surrounding it.
After going up a stretch along the river, we pass into an open countryside among charming fields, vineyards and woods. Finally, we get back to the castle of Colle Val d'Elsa, walking in front of medieval and renaissance palaces up to the tower house of the architect Arnolfo di Cambio. The town is a jewel of narrow streets and medieval paths, almost unknown to mass tourism, where it is still possible to meet Boreno Cigni, one of the last engravers of crystal.
The tour ends with a delicious snack of Tuscan specialities arranged as a pick-nick by the guide.
