On the “rooftop” of Tuscany
An amazing hike on the Apennines across beautiful forests and panoramic meadows. Following the grassy ridgeline we’ll reach the summit of Monte Prado. This is the highest peak of Tuscany, the view is just incredible!
The walk starts from Casone di Profecchia and crosses the amazing forests of beech trees. After one hour the forest finishes and we arrive to the amazing grazings of the Apennines. On the ridgeline we’ll be on the border between Tuscany and Emilia Romagna, the view is great. From the top of Mt.Prado we’ll descend down the east face of the mountain leaving Tuscany for a couple of hours. The fairy Lake of Bargetana and the view of the Mt.Cusna (2120mt slm) are the highlights of this long loop. The majesty of the Apennins will impress you!
