Full description

Come and discover the hills around Florence and its beautiful views on a trekking tour along one of the most beautiful paths in Fiesole.

You will walk along the stonemasons' paths between Fiesole and Settignano to discover ancient paths built by the Etruscans and Romans and used to this day. You will visit the square where the first man took flight thanks to Leonardo da Vinci's inventions, enjoying the view from the summit of Monte Ceceri.

Accompanied by an AIGAE-certified environmental guide with over 10 years' experience, you will pass through olive groves, pietra serena quarries and ancient paths discovering magnificent places.

What we will do

We will meet in the Piazza Centrale of Fiesole, where the group of 2 to 10 people will meet with the guide.

From here we will begin the walk along the CAI (Club Alpino Italiano) path and enjoy the view from one of the most beautiful streets in Fiesole before entering the Monte Ceceri Nature Reserve.

During the short and easy ascent to the summit of the mountain, we will stop to enjoy the wonderful panorama and see some pietra serena quarries, which have been used since ancient times.

Once at the summit, we will continue along the Via degli Dei, circumnavigating the Florentine plain, crossing fields of olive trees and woods of cypresses, farnias and turkey oaks. We descend towards Settignano and take a diversion back to Fiesole and the small village of Maiano. From here we ascend Monte Ceceri to return to our starting point.

The route is about 12 km for a total of 5 hours (including lunch break).
