Mt. Forato, Tuscany, Guided Via Ferrata for Children

We wanted to try out via ferrate already for a long time. This was our first one and we were going with kids (9 and 11 y.o.) so we decided to find a guide that could accompany us. Pasquale was a perfect guide - experienced, interesting and caring. We felt safe and had a great time! Thank you!
