The itinerary leaves with a historical route recovered thanks to an initiative of the National Park, then it continues on the traces of the linesmen who used to watch over the important power lines for Florence, across the beech tree wood and along isolated valleys. A completely different landscape awaits you in the plateau of Mt. Bagioletto and Prati di Sara, scattered with seasonal small lakes where you can enjoy a great view. The need for metal processing led to the opening of new mines in the dukedoms of Este between the 16th and 18th century. The mines above Casalino had short life: only a few traces of them are left on the spectacular Ciglio degli Schiocchi.
