From Bologna to Florence the way of the Etruscans

From Bologna to Florence the way of the Etruscans, a wonderful itinerary through the Apennines, between history and art, along routes, paths and muletracks that belong to forgotten ages. A fascinating journey, an ancient flavor, that bring us back to the time where these routes where plenty of pilgrims an traders. This itinerary goes through hills, forests and villages full of traditions. This route is also called The Way of the Etruscans,  because the places we walk through were inhabited by the ancient Etruscan, which had built two cities-support, nearly two “terminals”, for crossing the Apennines: Kainua (Marzabotto) to the north and Gonfienti (Prato) south of the Apennine mountain range. This has always been the natural and political division between northern and southern Italy, Europe and Mediterranean countries. This particular route will lead us to unexpected landscapes of this unknown country.
