WHAT IT IS

This is a journey leading to the tuff area from Monte Amiata, the Sacred Mountain of the Etruscans along its gentle slopes, seeking evidence that the ancient Etruscan people left behind in this land.

We recommend you to travel this precious corner of Tuscany on an e-bike: thanks to the assisted pedalling you can live this experience at its best and, without too much effort, enjoy charming landscapes and panoramas: from the summit of Monte Amiata to its slopes, from the Fiora and Albegna valleys to the impressive Vie Cave and the Etruscan Tombs dug inside tuff.

A path full of history and mystery, perfect for those who love outdoor activities and nature.
