Inclusive trekking on the Via Ghibellina, from Florence to Poppi

Posted in Technology & Research

Our journey through history starts ideologically from Florence and practically from Bagno a Ripoli in an itinerary that alternates cypresses and farmhouses, vineyards and olive groves, tabernacles, majestic Medici villas and beautiful cave churches. We will then reach the Vallombrosa Abbey, founded in 1036, in a biogenetic state forest-nature reserve, where we will find the tallest tree in Italy, a Douglas fir of 62.45 meters. And the landscape will change again in the Casentino Valley: Montemignaio and Castel Leone, the Hermitage of Quorle where we will meet Wolfgang Fasser (physiotherapist and music therapist, blind due to a genetic disease, collaborator of the Romanian fraternity, custodian of welcome and silence). Final stage in Poppi, a medieval village that with its famous castle seals a great ending for this unforgettable journey.
