Nature parks

Prato is located at the outlet of the Bisenzio Valley half way of the plain - which had its origins in a large lake gradually filled up with sediments transported by rivers - on which rise Florence and Pistoia. The town is surrounded by the Calvana mountains and the Monteferrato hills.  From industrial and inhabitated areas, woods and cultivated lands can be easily reached.

Different excursions are possible: easy walks along hill tracks (Monteferrato), hard mountain itineraries (High Bisenzio Valley), walks through the rich vegetation discovering Karst formation (Calvana), or covering windy grasslands (high altitude of Calvana). The southern part of the Province of Prato includes the gentle hills of Montalbano, cultiveted with olive trees and vineyards.
