What to see in Mugello

Mugello is a large valley, located north of Florence, which develops along the course of the Sieve river in correspondence of an ancient lake of marine origin. The actual Mugello area is well bounded on three sides (north, south and west) by the Apennines and other reliefs such as Monte Giovi, Monte Senario and Vetta le Croci. The eastern boundary, on the other hand, is less clear-cut but is conventionally identified with the area in which Dicomano stands. In addition to this area, there is also the Firenzuola basin, situated beyond the Apennine ridge, which is often referred to as Alto Mugello.

From a landscape point of view, Mugello is characterised by a rather varied territory that changes rapidly from the plains of the valley floor to the ridges of the mountain complexes. Since the end of the 20th century, the Mugello landscape has been enriched by a new element, the Bilancino Lake, a large artificial reservoir created to regulate the flow of the Sieve and guarantee water supply to the Florentine area.

In the surrounding area there is no shortage of mythical places to discover. Villages such as Sant’agata, rich in ancient traditions dating back to the Middle Ages, will welcome you with simplicity and friendliness. Scarperia and San Piero, with its Palazzo dei Vicari, offers many cultural activities. Borgo San Lorenzo remains the nerve centre.
