Il Parco Faunistico del Monte Amiata

It’s hard to imagine, but all of Monte Amiata’s incredible and unbelievable beauty is preserved in this nature park. It is the epitome of the tireless work and endless dedication of those who live around the mountain.

It is the fruit of everything they have done to keep human interference away and, more importantly, it is home to hares, foxes, hedgehogs, squirrels, weasels, polecats, deer, badgers and during the winter the endangered Apennine wolf, who has flourished in the tranquil landscape of the park.

The Parco Faunistico del Monte Amiata extends towards Monte Labbro, over 120 hectares of forests and rivers, fields and valleys.

Visitors can take guided tours or tackle the 6km ‘Sentiero natura’ path by themselves. But beware, the entire thing takes about 3 hours!
