Short trail to the castle if you don't want to be too lazy to drive your car straight to the castle parking.

First to Review

A beautiful walk in the vertical (hard) to get to the fortress of the Medici (Conti Piccolomini) placed on a dominant peak two valleys of which is very important for the "trattura of the Apennines": regular footpaths, shortcuts and the top to reach the Rocca also steps on rocks where you have to use your hands. I guess it is peculiar for scholars of Medioeval History to visit the fortness as it is the way to understand the territory control and the toll system to get money for the GranDuke. Strong investment at that time for building that "Rocca" !
