Walking in the beautiful woods, forests and green meadows between Umbria and Tuscany is an experience that worth! It means discovering and exploring important places tied to historical and artistic events.
Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and other important artists of Italian Renaissance lived and worked here and every stone, every tree, every hill send us incredible moments of history! It means also walking in the mystical places that have so deeply influenced the life and works of St Francis, one of the most revolutionary personalities of history!
The places you will pass through are the places where he has lived his life and preached and in many cases, not so much has changed since that time!
That magic atmosphere, out of time, has not changed yet! We invite you to discover the unforgettable land between Umbria and Tuscany, from La Verna to Assisi.
