Pietrasanta head for the cemetery and take the left until the beautiful
parish church of S. Giovanni and S. Felicita then continue on to the village
of Valdicastello where the poet Giosué Carducci was born. Having
passed over a small stream you arrive at a saw mill. At the crossroads
continue straight on along the asphalt road which then becomes a dirt
track and which in turn becomes asphalted again. This new asphalt road
leads to Monteggioni. Arriving at the village go through it and at the
crossroads take the left which begin the descent into the valley of Camaiore.
After only a few hundred metres, be careful not to miss the mule track
on the right which then winds until the frazione di Montebello. The track
then becomes asphalted and leads straight to the ancient town of Camaiore.
Packed with many a work of art, (testimony to its splendid past), due
to the famous walkway.
