Calzaiolo ring route

Municipality San Casciano in Val di Pesa


The route begins at the Ponterotto parking lot from where you join the Pesa trail, which you follow to Calzaiolo.

You cross the bridge of the road over the Pesa and continue along Via di San Vito di Sopra until you find Via Montecalvi on the left after a short distance (it is the first road on the left).

You follow Via Montecalvi for a long time with little ascent, passing the villages of Pitto and Casanova until you cross the road coming from Bargino. You turn right uphill and follow it until you come to an obvious bend to the right (watch out for the fork in the road) where you turn left to the farm road with a fence and immediately turn right.

You skirt the cultivated land uphill with the forest above. At the next farm road, turn right and uphill to reach another cultivated area above. We skirt the vineyard keeping to the right until we reach an obvious telecommunications network installation (RAIWAY). Leave the installation on the left and follow the unpaved road with an almost horizontal course through a beautiful oak forest until it crosses via di San Vito di Sopra. Turn right to follow via di San Vito, passing several cottages and the beautiful little church of San Vito.

Shortly afterwards, we come to via del Bosco, from where we can return to Calzaiolo and from here to Ponterotto.
