Casore del Monte

The place is situated along the ridge that arrives from Femminamorta to Serravalle Pistoiese. It is a watershed between catchment basins of the torrent Nievole in the west and of the torrent Vincio di Montagnana, tributary river of Ombrone Pistoiese in the east.

This privileged position makes the old center a kind of natural terrace, from here you can enjoy a special view, it includes from the plain of Grande Valdinievole and of Lucchesia to Livorno in the west, to Montalbano, to Fucecchiobag and to the southern Arnovalley in the south, to Pistoia, Prato, Florence plain in the east, and to spurs of Appennine mountains in the north. When it is sunny you can notice the Giottobelltower and the Brunelleschi cupola in Florence, Amiatamountain and some islands of Tuscan archipelago.

You can arrive to Casore del Monte following the street that comes from Serravallebridge and it follows the high course of torrent Nievole, or you can achieve Casore from Pistoia, following the street that follows the course of river Vincio, at last you can find a crossroads that’s along the street that comes from Pistoia to Femminamorta; Casore is connected to Marliana. From Casore lots of well-cultivated trekking path spread in the middle of chestnut wood, towards the most disparated directions: Avaglio and Panicagliora, Femminamorta and Prunetta, Marliana and Castellina.
