Now we head toward the dunes of Villamagna, before arriving at the striking Teatro del Silenzio (Theatre of Silence) in Lajatico, built by the famous singer Andrea Bocelli in honour of his hometown. Imagine having lunch with homemade baked focaccia bread surrounded by nature and silence… this is the perfect place to make that dream come true!
From Lajatico, you can take several different directions: one possibility is passing through Chianni and the spa town of Casciana Terme, or you could explore Terricciola, Peccioli and Capannoli. But if you want to continue with the original route, the last stop is Lari, inhabited since Etruscan times. Here, you’ll find a castle dating to the Middle Ages that dominates the Valdarno. The fortress is protected by a defense wall with three entrances: the Porta Fiorentina, the Pisana and the Volterrana. Have fun exploring this jump back in time before finishing the journey back in Pontedera, where you can enjoy a dinner at sunset as you think back on your day spent traversing the wonderful countryside of the Valdera.
