How to spend the immaculate feast in Tuscany!

Tuscany with its 10 provinces is a very vast territory that has different natural characteristics.

City of art, ancient medieval and renaissance villages, mountains, sea, history, are just some of the many attractions that this beautiful region has to offer.

Spending the feast of the immaculate in Tuscany is definitely a choice that will satisfy every desire.

Having only a few days of break from the daily routine, we recommend to dedicate yourself to the discovery of delicious villages, such as the famous “city of the towers”, the beautiful San Gimignano.

San Gimignano is one of the most loved Tuscan cities from tourists from all over the world and is only a 1-hour drive from Florence. Italians and foreigners visit the Tuscan village every year to immerse themselves in its typically medieval environment, with its ancient buildings and its famous towers.

Spending the feast of the immaculate in San Gimignano will allow you to relax, enjoy the tranquility of this small and charming village enjoying the typical dishes of the Tuscan tradition.

Immaculate feast in the Casentino, between wolves and hermits.

Another idea to spend the feast of the immaculate 2018 in Tuscany is to immerse yourself in nature and rediscover the contact with simple things.

The Casentino, for example, allows you to spend a beautiful weekend immersed in the centuries-old forests of the National Park, between the sanctuary of La Verna and the Hermitage of Camaldoli.

Wildlife enthusiasts can make excursions with expert guides for an unmissable rendezvous with wolves, walking through the forest, detecting footprints, bone remains and other signs of the presence of the great predator.

An excursion to the top of Monte Penna in Badia Prataglia, on the other hand, will take you on a spectacular natural balcony where the forest suddenly stops and opens up a panorama of unexpected vastness that sweeps up to the sea.

For families with children the ideal choice is a short excursion to the Arboretum of Badia Prataglia, where grow up huge trees from all over the northern hemisphere, including also “redwood” sequoia of California.
