The fabulous Mountain of Pistoia
The Mountain of Pistoia allow the visitor to experience all of the most interesting places this area has to offer, in terms of both nature and history. Whether in winter or summer time, the local branch of the C.A.I. (Italian Alpine Club) regularly offers a wide variety of interesting activities, which includes pleasant walks along the ridges of the Apennine mountains. In fact, there are many trails to be explored, if wished even with snowshoes and it is also possible to have a rest at the many mountain huts located along the route. For those who love excursions by mountain bike or are passionate about Nordic walking, they can plan their trips using the service of a national instructor. The ski resorts of the Abetone and Doganaccia area offer miles of perfectly snow-covered slopes. Snow lovers can have a go at alpine skiing, cross country skiing, snowboarding or learn it from scratch in the ski school. In summer time the daredevil ones can enjoy the adventure park of Doganaccia with its downhill tracks or visit the Gravity Park of Abetone in the same area. Moreover, you may also use the public swimming pool in the neighbouring village Maresca, with its two 25 metres pools, one of which is covered and heated, offering an additional activity in the cold winter months.
