Hiking and Picnic in Valdarno The landscape that inspired Leonardo Da Vinci.


Hiking and Picnic in Valdarno - CODE: SNVAL01

Have a guided walk in Valdarno starting from Ponte Buriano, a bridge built in the second half of the 13th century and made famous by Leonardo da Vinci in the background of his Mona Lisa. Follow the course of the river Arno, which becomes wider and forms the Penna reservoir. The vegetal landscape is made of downy oaks, shrub bushes, agricultural fields, and of a large marshy area in the eastern part of the Nature Reserve.
