Versilia

VersiliaThe Versilia region is a heaven on earth embraced by golden sandy beaches and rugged peaks of marble mountains, dotted with ancient authentic villages suspended in time. Versilia has been an inspiration for many artists and distinguished poets from Michelangelo, D’Annunzio, Carducci and Puccini to Botero, Folon and Mitoraj, becoming a worldwide symbol of sophistication Read more

Description

Enjoy a day immersed in the nature, hiking shaded woods along pristine rivers in the watermills' valley, important production hub of Versilia until the late '90s. Today mostly abandoned, the watermills' ruins stand as a backdrop to enchanting waterfalls and pools.

We start from an original hilltop village popular for its sgraffiti - type of "modern"graffiti engraved on the walls using ancient techniques that come from the fresco, consisting in a fresh incision of several layers of colored mortars.

We continue hiking across lush vegetation and we stop at secluded natural pools known only by the locals, for a refreshing dip and an aperitif in the nature, before coming back to the departing point.

Highlights

  • Fascinating watermills' ruins
  • Original village of "Sgraffiti"
  • Swim in secluded river pools (summer months)
  • Aperitif in the nature
