Dear all,

this activity will take place again out of Tuscany, just few km far from the border, at one at half hours from Florence, in beautiful Liguria.
We will walk on a beautiful panoramic path, overlooking the sea.

This path will make us discover Caprione promontory, with fascinating panoramic views between the scrub and the sea, along the paths of the beautiful Montemarcello-Magra Regional Park.
Starting from Bocca di Magra, a small village where the Magra River and the Ligurian Sea meet, we will reach the beautiful cliffs of Punta Bianca, known since antiquity for the cultivation of marble.
We will follow the path that rises steeply towards Montemarcello, overlooking the beautiful wood that rises up close to the sea where still the dry walls of ancient terraces still stand.
After a brief stop at the military battery 'General Domenico Chiodo', dating back to Protected content , we will arrive at Montemarcello, a tiny hamlet among the most beautiful in Italy.
After visiting the belvedere overlooking the beach of Punta Corvo and the village, we will then walk through the beautiful mule track that through the wood will bring us back to the sea, at Punta Sanità at Bocca di Magra.

Characteristics of the hiking trail:
Total length: about 10 km
Total climb altitude: about Protected content
Difficulty level: Medium-challenging
Actual travel time (without stops): Approximately 4 hours
Duration: daytrip (packed lunch by the participants).
Equipment Required: Hiking hiking boots or sneakers with threaded sole, water supply.
Recommended gear: Suitable for the season and weather conditions, hiking poles, camera.

As usual, we will go out on a Saturday, to avoid traffic and crowds and also to have the possibility to rest the day after.

We will be together with an environmental and touristic guide, who will explain more about the history, the flora and the geology that characterize the area we've visiting.

If you want to spend a carefree day, walking and taking pictures together with a bunch a people who love doing the same, this is your opportunity!

I look forward to receiving your confirmations!
