The B&B La Casina di Parrana is located on a very important archaeological area. There are many evidences of civilizations and architectural works of the past. The Leopoldino aqueduct is surely the most famous among these works. Walking in the woods just behind “the house” you can admire the so-called temples of the sources. Trust to the guides with whom we cooparate and plunge into the history of our past along ancient stone paths and stairs, which are guardian of our past.

Not only hiking! The mountains of Livorno can also be discovered by horse trekking. And do not be surprised when meeting  boars, deers and at the time of sunset the porupine and the badget. By us it is normal!!
