Walking up and down the ancient extinct volcano of Tuscany

Explore the largest beech forest in Italy until you reach the top of the mountain or discover lesser-known places, such as the Zancona waterfall and the Grotta del Sassocolato: the paths and itineraries on Mount Amiata are many and suitable for all ages.

Mount Amiata ring-route and paths through the villages

More than 28 km through the beech forest, in a ring-route to explore the mountain: it is the Anello del Monte Amiata. The path winds between 1000 and 1300 meters of altitude, with a little difference in height, through chestnut woods and beech forests. Along the path, there are equipped areas for resting and water sources.

The 8 villages of Amiata are the starting point for many trails: from the 4 ring-routes of Abbadia San Salvatore to the Macchia Faggeta trails, passing through to the ten itineraries from Arcidosso to Monte Labbro, up to the Roccalbegna trails to explore the WWF oasis of Bosco Rocconi and the Pescinello Reserve. Unmissable, in autumn, are the itineraries through the chestnut woods.

Guided tours

Most of Amiata paths are signposted and walked freely. However, if you want to discover alternative itineraries, you can take advantage of the excursions organized by local guides and associations.
