nature reserves of montioni and poggio neri

An island of green hills
Montioni: There are 7000 hectares of tree-covered hills where the visitor can roam along countless paths once used by woodcutters, charcoal burners, shepherds and hunters. Another feature is mineral exploitation involving alum - the remains of a mining village built by Elisa Bonaparte, Princess of Piombino of the Napoleonic era are still visible.

Poggio Neri: traces of an ancient economy based on charcoal, chestnut and hunting are clearly visible in this park. There is a woodland museum in the park which houses tools and introduces the visitor to the trades and crafts of the forest. It boasts a perfect and detailed reconstruction of the charcoal burner's craft: a traditional hut, a drier and a charcoal pile. To enable everyone to enjoy this natural resource, a path suitable for wheelchairs has been provided.

Facilities: footpaths, cycle and bridle paths, picnic areas. In the Montioni park only:  accommodation facilities
