Climb Monte Pisanino, the highest mountain entirely in Tuscany, with one of the IFMGA-certified mountain guides of the Prorock Outdoor Team.
Monte Pisanino, located in the Province of Lucca, is the king of the Apuan Alps. It is 1946 meters high, which makes it the highest mountain located entirely in Tuscany. The locals call the mountain the Pizzo della Caranca.
The climb starts from Val Serenaia. From a physical point of view, it is a demanding ascent. You must have experience hiking on steep terrain and it is strongly recommended to go with a certified mountain guide.
The total ascent takes around 7 hours and the altitude gain is of 1100 meters. We will meet in Orto di Donna to start the hike and then the ascent of Mount Pisanino.
The best period to climb it is from May till September. We usually take a maximum of 2 clients per guide, to keep the adventure personal and pay attention to every detail you may need. This price includes the guiding fee and the technical equipment.

We had an amazing trip, although the weather was bad for Monte Pisanino, the guide Franco took us up a neighbouring peak (Pizzo D\'uchello). Not too technically or physically demanding it did require a good head for heights as some areas were exposed. Overall a great experience and led by a very knowledgable and professional guide. 5 stars, would recommend for anyone looking for something a bit different!
We had a great experience with Franco (member of Roberto guides\' team) who guided us in this trek in Apuan Alps, the Pisanino, which is the highest summit in all this region. The level of difficulty is low while you should be ready to have some vertigos view at some points but we should say the panoramas are so stunning between the Apennines, the Mediterranean sea and the other mountains from Alpi Apuane all around. Franco has been so kind to explain in details the other treks of the region we will not miss to do next time !
