For an optimum environmental protection and tourist promotion of Mugello, the Tuscany Region has entrusted the administration of this heritage to local territorial authorities.
The Tuscany’s Agricultural Heritage covers an area of more than 110,000 hectares and it is almost 20% of all Italian “demanial” forests.
Many of these forests often have an ancient history, just think of the monastic communities of Vallombrosa, Camaldoli, La Verna and Moscheta in Mugello.
Tourism in Mugello is therefore made of great nature and strong spirituality.
In the northern part of Mugello, on the border with the province of Arezzo and the province of Forlì, it starts the National Park of Casentino Forests, Mount Falterona and Campigna.
The landscape, which here takes on mountainous connotations, invites pleasant walks, horseback or mountain biking on well-groomed, streets and mule tracks.
Trekking in the Casentino National Forest Park is possible all year long.
In the park you can enter the small hamlet of Castagno d’Andrea (municipality of San Godenzo), which gave birth to the great Renaissance painter Andrea del Castagno, or from the Passo del Muraglione or the crossing of the Valico della Croce a Mori (Londa municipality).
In this unspoiled environment, among centuries-old chestnut woods and imposing beech trees, you can discover flowers belonging to the rarest and most protected species, a rich undergrowth or deer.
The presence of a strong and impressive nature is also marked by the return of the eagle and the presence of the wolf, spotted everywhere in the territory.
Excursions can also be done in the company of a naturalistic guide.
