For the fittest and enthusiasts of real Trails, the 42 km route is exceptional, half way between Urban and Cross-country Trail.

The starting point is in Piazzale Michelangelo at 8.30 a.m. on Saturday, with a beautiful route unwinding in San Miniato al Monte, Albereta Park, along the Arno bank to Girone and then up the steep climb to Settignano. A single track in the wood up to the splendid Castel di Poggio, up to Monte Fanna and then the heart of Fiesole with its views and hidden lanes.

A real trail up to the top of Monte Ceceri, where Leonardo da Vinci tested his flying machines, then downhill to the quarries of Maiano and back to Settignano. All of this with Florence at your feet.

It will seem a real pity to go back downhill after this dive into nature and a landscape as enchanting as a painting. But the route relentlessly descends to the heart of the city, going back to its urban part, with stretches through the Parco Pazzagli, close to Obihall, then along the Lungarno banks again and back to the finishing line in Piazzale Michelangelo.
