The project “Eccellenza in Etruria” at Casole d’Elsa

Promoted by “Regione Toscana” , the project “Eccellenza in Etruria” provides the valorization of Etruscan archaeological areas through the implementation of hiking trails. Under the patronage of the Municipality of Casole d’Elsa, a section of about 10 km, has been created through a cartographic and field study and made available through ordinary maintenance operations, to integrate the local tourist road network and promote slow-tourism.

The route will cross the historical centre of Casole d’Elsa and Cavallano, to enhance the Etruscan evidence on the territory (including the Civic Archaeological Museum), with the insertion of explanatory pannels and signs (RET) in the focal points of the route.

The route will be part of a wider itinerary between Volterra-Fiesole and Florence, for creating a homogeneous package to enhance and encourage the slow-tourism in Tuscany.
