This time we head north through the hills, with a spectacular vista of the castle estate and surrounding farmland to keep us company.
After crossing the provincial road, the trail leads us towards the magical scenery formed by the tuscan mountains towering in front of us.
The trail carries on around the vicinity of Onano a fortified town of the Middle Ages. Your guide will show you the medieval castle dominating the ancient town, an important stronghold of the Monaldeschi family which ruled the area in the Middle Ages.
We keep going through old farmers' tracks, up into open fields, past the delightful medieval church of St Maria delle Grazie and then back home to the castle.
