Hike to Volpaia – Sunday May 18th

On Sunday May 18th we took a 20km hike from Panzano to Volpaia, 10am to 6pm, under the guide of naturalist Martino Danielli, who introduced us to the history of the forest and of the agriculture of Chianti. Among many plants, we talked about lampacioni, which we found the following weekend for sale in Pisa’s market at Piazza delle Vettovaglie (pic included below).
