Valdichiana Active

Walk or bike through the Valdichiana Senese countryside

Valdichiana is a territory to be discovered with outdoor walks. Valdichiana Active was created precisely to make accessible all those hidden paths that reveal the most authentic side of this area of Tuscany. Traveling on the white roads that wind along the edge of the villages, or hidden among wooded spots, means truly coming into contact with the essence of this area and its history. Numerous paths outline the Valdichiana Senese, suitable both for walking and cycling. And there is a path for everyone: for more expert walkers and for those who are less trained and simply want to enjoy nature and discover the area in a different way.
