Tuscany offers nature trails of extraordinary beauty: from the sea to the mountains. In the past years in Tuscany were created natural parks of national and regional level, with a mosaic of natural environments of great value. From the mountains to the sea with sandy beaches and cliffs, swamps, pine forests, fields and pastures, the natural parks of Tuscany offer a mix of strong scents, herbs and sweet and wild landscapes from which the visitor can only be fascinated.
The most interesting parks in Tuscany that a tour should not miss are:
Regional Park of Migliarino, San Rossore, Massaciuccoli
This natural park of great value to all the natural ecosystem of Tuscany covers about 24,000 hectares located along the Tyrrhenian sea coast between Viareggio and Livorno. Although located in an heavily urbanized area, this park has ensured the preservation of significant natural character and remains today one of the few examples in Italy and Tuscany of undeveloped coastline.
National Park of the Tuscan Archipelago
By far the largest marine park in Europe. It covers and protects 56,766 hectares of sea and 17,887 hectares of land, including all the seven main islands of the Tuscan archipelago: Elba, Giglio, Capraia, Giannutri. Like pearls on a necklace, each Tuscan island of this archipelago is different. Each island retains traces of its history, each island is unique, original, with only one thing in common: the extraordinary beauty of its nature.
Regional park of the Apuan Alps
Known by lovers of mountaineering and hiking for its typically Alpine conformation, but best known for the extraction of marble from Carrara. The most famous white gray marble stones of the world come from here.
An extraordinary oasis of protected nature of rare beauty and great value for the environment. The Uccellina park, located south of Tuscany, overlooking one of the most beautiful areas of the Tyrrhenian Sea, extends for 25 km along the Tyrrhenian coast from Principina a Mare to Alberese up to Talamone. Significant natural and geographical features are the last stretch of the Ombrone river, the mountains of Uccellina with a chain of hills descending towards the sea, sandy beaches and towering cliffs, surrounded by swamps, pine forests, fields and pastures and finally the marsh area of “trappola” (the trap).
Among the intense fragrance of herbs, colorful berries and wild animals, the park welcomes visitors showing off its sweet and beauty side but at the same time, its wildness. A contrast of characteristics that awakens and releases the pleasure of being in a paradise.
