In the initial section of the route cross a lovely paved track along the ancient Via Francigena.
Past the area of Cerbaie, wild and deserted. Head for Ponte a Cappiano, where there is a hostel quarried from an ancient Medicean bridge. Then we cross an old swamp that has been recently improved and go uphill, in the direction of the interesting city centre of Fucecchio. Go over the Arno, flanking the dyke towards San Miniato. Water and road-houses in Chimenti, Galleno, Ponte a Cappiano, and Fucecchio.
