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.
