Nature #15: The natural beauty of Tuscany


The truth is that, from an early age, I have always been attracted to travel, to get to know different places, people, cultures, languages. However, some countries more than others, piqued my curiosity as two of them that are located on the European continent: France and Italy. In this Nature I chose Italy, a country whose language is known as the “language of love”, but I will highlight a particular city, Tuscany.

Ecological walks like Trekking, walks with routes, others more directed to physical health can be done along the paths of the city, such as Nordik walking, on poles used for support during the path and this is the path “alternative"That from April until the end of October there will be in the Tuscan parks the"Walking Festival", also known as "Festival del Camminare”. The beauty of the paths is worth putting us away from the stress we are subjected to daily.

We also have the coastal paradises of this magnificent city. The most incredible thing is that such beauty is one of the least known of Brazilians. Versilia, in the north, to the coast of Maremma, in the south, passing through the islands, everything is magnificent. Via Via Aurelia - an old road that connects France and Rome - is the best way to contemplate a clear sea, small ports, coves and pine forests, which complete the scene.

Anyway, we come to Livorno, to start our itinerary. The departure is the old port protected by Fortezza Vecchia and I recommend a trip to Terrazza Mascagni, where there is a beautiful panorama of the Tuscan Archipelago and Corsica.

How about discovering Tuscany “classical“, Between history and love for wine (it is good for the body and gives lightness to the spirit). Chianti is full territory: poetic, excellent wine, that is, pure emotion. Let us start walking along the old Chiantigiana road on which we have the Radda in Chianti, which are stone houses, with cypress trees that seem to guard the road to Greve in Chianti, the kingdom of “fiasco”- which are typical straw-covered wine bottles.

Garfagnana which is a territory located between the Apuan Alps and the Tosco-Emilian Apennines. Small medieval towns, with very unusual places like the Grotta del Vento, the Parque dell'Orecchiella and countless gems. The main city is the equally beautiful Castelnuovo Garfagnana, which rivals the famous Rocca of the XI around which the fortified complex was later built.

Val d'Orcia, magical land, with splendid villages, Etruscan history (people who lived in villages) and spas. In this city we find a multitude of cypress trees that accompany travelers along the way. The road, cutting through the lands of Siena from west to east and connecting Val d'Orcia and Val di Chiana is a viewpoint of one of the most local in Tuscany.

How about a horse ride? The so-called “equestrian” tourism in Tuscany aims to make us aware of the routes of the Wine Roads, which are internal routes of places with a strong vocation for wine, with wineries and agricultural companies and, as a wine lover, especially, this tour enchants.

Tuscan Archipelago - wonderful islands, a true paradise, which gives tourists the choice between diving in the blue of the crystalline sea or simply relaxing on Caribbean beaches. At the main ports, there are several companies that schedule boat tours and mini cruises.

THE Argentario, highest promontory on the Tuscan coast, former limestone island, with the mainland includes the Lagoon Orbetello, one of the most important wetlands in Italy, which is protected by a Regional Reserve and a WWF Oasis, for its natural wealth and the quality of the fauna, which are among the most relevant bird colonies.

THE Valdichiana it seems to be made to order for cyclists, because each ride on the Sentiero della bonifica combines nature and history. The path is ideal to go by bike or on foot and it is 62 km that connect Arezzo and Chiusi, allowing the knowledge of history by the water, precious for these places.

I also suggest a visit to the Civic Museum of Sansepolcro à Madonna del Parto in the church of Santa Maria in Momentana de Monterchi, works that made art history. And, as not only to enjoy and delight in art is enough for a trip, I recommend that you try the gastronomic delights of the Arezzo region along the Estrada do Vinho di Arezzo.
