The protected area of the Montalbano extends northwards from Capraia e Limite and Vinci. The landscape is basically hilly, with vineyards on the flatter areas or, in some cases, on terraces, olive trees further up and chestnut woods on the summits.
Between the 16th and 17th century about 4,000 hectares of the Montalbano were set aside by the Medici for the Barco Reale Mediceo, a vast hunting reserve surrounded by a perimeter wall. Some stretches of the original wall still stand today.
During the tour we will cross many interesting places: | The Vitruvian Man | we can take a shot in the historical center of the town of Vinci. | The Poggio di Marradino, to enjoy a breathtaking view of the village. | Anchiano, Leonardo Da Vinci’s Bithplace, we can also spend sometimes to visit it if you want. | Faltognano, where there is a centuries-old holm oak and the Church of Santa Maria; (from here on clear days the Tyrrhenian Sea can be admired). | La Cupola, the highest peak of the Montalbano mountain, 634 mt. high that show a wonderful view of the valley of Florence and the Tuscan Emilian Apennines.
