You can spend extraordinary days of touring following the state highway Sarzanese strong> that runs through the Valdera from Massa Marittima strong> to Pontedera strong>. From the beautiful old town of Massa Marittima you take the state highway 439 strong>, called “Sarzanese” towards the North to Monterotondo Marittimo.
In Monterotondo Marittimo strong> there is the very charming Park Biancane strong> in which the force of nature shows itself in the form of steam emissions from the ground, fumaroles and geothermal wells. Again on the Sarzanese, you can reach the medieval town of Castelnuovo Val di Cecina strong> where you must walk in the old town centre and pass the Chiassino strong> the alley which, with its 50 cm. width, is the narrowest street in the world.
Just beyond Castelnuovo Val di Cecina, on the right there is the town of Larderello strong> where you can really get surprised watching the giant geysers strong>. Back on the main road 439, we go up towards Pomarance strong> where you can enjoy beautiful views over the Cecina Valley. A bit forward the town of Saline strong> manages to offer some beautiful views of the nearby Volterra strong>.
