e-borghi travel 1, Mountain and villages: Abetone: snow, venture captains and heroes

Midway between Florence and Bologna the impressive Mountain stands out against the Southern side of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines. This area includes the villages of Abetone Cutigliano, a wide municipality, Marliana, San Marcello Piteglio and Sambuca Pistoiese. This mountain has been the only passage along the Apennine between Tuscany and Emilia and it sounds that the general Hannibal from Carthage crossed this passage to go from Piacenza towards the South. According to a legend several places have rivalled to be honoured for giving the name to a pass in the Luce Valley where a red track and a ski-lift are located in the Abetone’s area. A part of Italy that was crossed by armies and revolutionists many centuries ago that has become the paradise of winter holidays lovers nowadays: the area covers around fifty kilometres of ski tracks, 22 ski-lifts and 18 kilometres of cross-country ski tracks. You can be spoilt for choice, for all tastes and for all skills: if you are fond of skiing there’s one difficult track, 14 easy ones and 14 quite difficult ones at your disposal.
