(Minimum 10 adults, children without minimum number)

Duration: 3 h

Length: 3.5 km

After a brief visit to the tower of the castle of Porciano, we will follow the CAI path 4A to reach the Sanctuary of Santa Maria delle Grazie, a Renaissance jewel of the Casentino. This path has no technical difficulties; from it we will admire the Arno valley and Mount Falterona. The church of Santa Maria delle Grazie is the site of the apparition of the Madonna in 1420 and, to this day, is a destination of pilgrimage and devotion.
You will be accompanied on this lovely path by medieval archeologist Andrea Biondi and an environmental guide, with the help of donkeys for children.
A taste of the past and an unforgettable experience. Sturdy hiking shoes are recommended.
