Walking Montalbano

Our summer guided walks come back


Walking Montalbano guided walks are back. They are organized by the Municipality of Lamporecchio and the tourist office San Baronto-Lamporecchio and they are an unmissable chance for tourists and local people to discover the hidden treasures in Lamporecchio and the Montalbano hill walking along the historic paths in our territory.

From Saturday July 11 we start with walks in the weekend and from the end of the month also during the week, with groups of maximum 20 people, with booking required for each participant and according to local legislation and applicable health recommendations regarding safety to help avoid the spread of Covid-19. All our guided visits are free and are in Italian and English with our qualified guide Michela Del Negro.

Here is the July programme:

Saturday July 11th h 9.30 after the visit of the Church of Santa Maria del Pruno in Orbignano, we begin the loop walk from Fornello to Leporaia’s hill. During the walk it will be possible to observe the views on Sant’Amato and Valdarno’s side.

Sunday July 19 h 9.30 after a visit of the Church in San Baronto, whose story is linked to the Frankish monk, Baronto, who was coming back from Rome and found in this area and ideal place to devote himself to an eremite life, our guide will lead you to discover some of the most amazing views of our hill.

Saturday July 25th h 9.30 it’s time for an easy walk about 6 km long following a path which will go through the vineyards and corn fields in the Varignano area to discover hidden places in Lamporecchio.

Thursday July 30th h 17.30 the walk will take place around Porciano, exploring a path which leads to Leporaia hill, Fornello, Saletto and Belvedere among ancient paths and tabernacles when the sun begins to set unveiling unforgettable colours and views. The participants who want to eat in the fields can bring with them sandwiches, drinks and the necessary things for a picnic at twilight.
