It is no coincidence that it is called “Svizzera Pesciatina” the excellences of this area over Pescia are innumerable and many paths of different difficulty to enjoy walks immersed in nature, surrounded by nature and history, an authentic corner of a Tuscany that still preserves its traditions.

Ancient villages, known as the “ten castles of Valleriana” mark these enchanted environments; a network of trails, trekking and biking trails allow you to admire truly stunning views towards the Apennines, the Apuan Alps and the Tyrrhenian Sea.

The traces of the local peasant culture can be found in the ancient sources, in the water mills, in the narrow streets of the villages and also in the products of the local cuisine such as the Sorana bean IGP and the sweet chestnut flour. To learn more about the Valleriana, the RDP Padule di Fucecchio Center has also included in the calendar of autumn guided tours an excursion to discover the naturalistic and historical-environmental aspects of the Alta Valle della Pescia.
