Dear group,

let's inaugurate the spring with an excursion in an area that hosts among the most iconic Tuscan landscapes: Crete Senesi!

Starting from Asciano, a small town with legendary origins, we will walk along easy narrow roads through the open countryside.

In a succession of rolling hills, mindful of ancient colonizations, we will admire the spectacular gullies and biancane that characterize the area, which is part of the famous 'Crete Senesi'.

We will go into the woods to discover ancient places of faith and defense, memories of saints and knights.

Satisfied by the beauty of the landscape, enriched with stories and observations, we will return to Asciano to explore its treasures.

Here are some characteristics of the excursion:

Total length: about 16.5 km
Total climb altitude: Protected content
Actual travel time without stops: 4 hrs
Difficulty level: Medium\Difficult - difficulty is length
Duration: day trip, packed mid-day lunch

Required equipment:
Suitable dressing for the weather forecast, trekking shoes, water 1.5L min.

Carpooling will be attempted to reach the starting point of the hike but seats for everybody cannot be guaranteed.

Therefore, please consider using your own mean of transportation to reach the starting point; I'd be really grateful if you can offer seats to other participants!

Pls send me a private message to let me know if you need a lift and to provide your Whatsapp contact.
