SCENIC DRIVE ROAD IN TUSCANY ALONG THE CASENTINO VALLEY
Do not miss the natural beauties in the National Park of Casentino Forests, rich in beech, oak, and maple trees, one of the most important parks in Europe!
Inside the park, there is the Botanical Garden of Valbonella with old trees, rare and protected species, and a nice waterfall. It is located at an altitude of 700 meters a.s.l. You should absolutely visit this beautiful garden: there are 3 kinds of paths you can follow: the forest path, the stream path, and the open spaces path.
During the tour just stop in some local restaurants in order to taste the local cuisine which is one of the best in Italy. Tuscany and Emilia Romagna are two well-known regions thanks to their high-quality food as well. Pappardelle (a kind of pasta), Tortelli (dumplings stuffed with meat, ham or ricotta, and spinach), Arista (baked pork), Lasagne, braised or roasted boar, roasted veal filet and cow steaks (ask for "Chianina" and "Bistecca alla Fiorentina"!) are only some of the delicious specialties from this area that you can taste in any restaurants along your way. A real special dish from Tuscany is Ribollita, a soup made of vegetables, beans, and cabbage leaves.
Length of tour: 215 km
