The Nature Reserves of the Alta Val di Cecina

Not just a walk, coming and going but fully living a profound experience of nature, sometimes wild and untamed, and other times delightful and welcoming becoming part of our culture and presenting a unique landscape, a precious mosaic skilfully modelled by the people who had lived there for millennia, in the heart of Etruria.

A land of natural contrasts, an in between, a passage, culturally stressful, an articulated mosaic of nature that continuously surprises you, a delicate environmental equilibrium deserving discovery, to be understood and preserved.

All this in three extraordinary Nature Reserves (Berignone Forest, Monterufoli- Caselli Forest and Montenero), that have been classified as sites of a regional and community interest and protected areas, and another four protected areas of community importance (the Cecina River from Berignone to Ponteginori) and last but not least three of regional interest (Geothermal fields in M. Rotondo and Sasso Pisano, Valle del Pavone and Rocca Sillana, Balze of Volterra and the surrounding crete). About 12,000 hectares of a unique environment where one can enjoy the nature trails, trekking paths and didactic trails, fully equipped.
