Discover the amazing nature and stunning view from the summit of one of the most beautiful mountains in the Appennines: the Libro Aperto! This day hike is a great way to enjoy the unique nature of this beautiful mountain range in Tuscany.

The Libro Aperto  summit offers one of the most specatacular panoramic views in the area. The mountain is situated on the Apennines ridge and it marks the border beetween the regions of Tuscany and Emilia.

Join this tour and you will discover a mountain where nature is still untouched, a place full of history and traditions. During our hike, if we are lucky enough we might also see some roes, eagles and marmots.

Our trip starts and finishes in Abetone, one of the oldest ski resorts in Italy, land of lumberjacks and ski champions. We will hike for about 13 kilometers and it will take us about 6 hours. You don’t need any special skills to join us, but you need to be in good shape.

When you look at the mountain either from the south or the north it looks like a book opened at the middle, and that is exactly what Libro Aperto means, “Open Book”. The peak is located close to the Abetone Pass, making it easily reachable.

So what are you waiting for? Just book your place and get ready for a great day hike in the Appenines! You could also check out this day hike to the Scaffaiolo Lake!

About the guide

Guide profile image


I was born in a very cold December in Abetone, a small village nested along the ridge of Appennino Tosco Emiliano. Legend has it that when I was only 7-months old I started to walk, an activity I still practise. In 2008, following a great passion, I became a an AMSI Ski Instructor. Some years later, I got a degree in Economy of Tourism at Firenze's University and a specialization course in marketing.

Thereafter, I spent a couple of years working in different cities far away from my home mountains. That was when I decided that my life should be on a mountain ridge, or in a valley, walking in a forest or in a field full of flowers, but always surrounded by the green of Mother Nature. So, I started to work as Hiking Guide, becoming a proud ambassador of my land and my traditions.

Join me on a trip and I wil take you to discover the real heart of the mountains of Tuscany and the real soul of the Appennines!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
