Biking and Walking in Valdichiana

If you're looking for an easy bike trail or footpath in the hills of Tuscany, Il Sentiero della Bonifica, or Path of the Reclaimed Land, is a 62 km bike and pedestrian path which joins Arezzo to Chiusi and is suitable for anyone wishing to travel slowly, including families with children. It runs along the Canale Maestro (Master Canal of the Chiana Valley), an ambitious engineering project which began with Leonardo da Vinci and the Medici family when they decided to reclaim a vast area of swampland for agricultural purposes. The Canal is a historical hydraulic engineering achievement which still today plays an important role in this area, making thhe Valdichiana one of Tuscany's most fertile valleys.
