Monte Pisanino, located in the Province of Lucca, is the king of the Apuan Alps. It is 1946 meters high, the highest mountain located entirely in Tuscany. The locals call the mountain the Pizzo della Caranca. The climb starts from Val Serenaia across the mouth of Cardeto altar and the steep Channel roses. 

It is a demanding ascent from the physical point of view. You must have experience in hiking on steep terrain to climb it. It is strongly recommended to go with a certified mountain guide in order to maximize your safety.

There is an altitude gain of 1100 meters. It takes around 7 hours.

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.

The price is 300€ and one guide will take maximum 2 clients with him. This price includes the guiding fee and the technical equipment.
