km 0 trekking. bee’s gold: visit to the Azienda Api Gigliesi and tasting of farm produce
Short trek to Scopeto. The Park Guide will illustrate the natural and manmade features of the area. We’ll meet Mariella Centurioni and Marco Stanca of the Azienda Agricola ApiariaApi Gigliesi, who will guide us through the world of bees – first-rate environmental indicators and irreplaceable in maintaining ecosystem biodiversity – and will let us taste an exceptional organic honey. Inside a jar of honey is the story of a beehive, and therefore of a community, closely linked to the characteristics of an area and its agricultural production. A virtuous circle that connects the plant, animal and human worlds and represents an excellent model of sustainable development, one in which bees thrive, plants reproduce and bear fruit, and man enjoys the precious bee products.The visit ends with a tasting session in the open air, enjoying the sunset and the farm’s produce. Meeting point: 3 hours before sunset, bus stop after the Bivio, provincial road to Giglio Porto
Duration: 3 hours – Difficulty: easy
Advance booking required, minimum 6 participants, € 18 including excursion and tasting.
