The Gastronomarcia hike in the countryside around Monsanto (organized by La Compagnia di Monsanto) is back on Sunday June 24th.

It’s not a competitive race, but a fairly challenging walk through Monsanto’s woods and vineyards, with rest stops along the route, serving all sort of food and drinks. From breakfast, to an aperitif, to a lunch “in stages”. Because all that walking will make you hungry!

This is a perfect opportunity to spend a day outdoors and discover the treasures and flavours of Chianti. The proceeds from this event will be entirely donated to the Parish of San Ruffignano in Monsanto, to contribute to its renovation works.

The meeting point is at the church of San Ruffignano in Monsanto (Monsanto, Barberino Val d’Elsa). The departure is in different groups, from 8.30am to 9.30am.

Vegetarian menu on request, upon registration. In collaboration with the Pro Loco Barberino and Achu Archaeological Group.

Along the way the participants will have the chance to learn about the history of the Cepparello Castle and the nature of this area with Barbara Guazzini, naturalist and Environmental Hiking Guide.

Registration deadline: Wednesday, June 20th. To register, call 0558059029, or write at
