About the Event

The quarries of Maiano represent only a part of the vast complex of extraction of ornamental stones that extends throughout the area between Maiano and Settignano. Our hike brings us through the quarries of Maiano, now abandoned and in complete disuse, where the excavations of the precious varieties of "pietra forte" and "pietra serena" (otherwise called "gray stone") were obtained. What's wonderful about this walk is it is just 15 minutes outside of the city centre and we get a fabulous view of Florence and arrive at the point where Leonardo da Vinci took flight from his flight machine.
