The Park Train

A coach of the train of LFI (La Ferroviaria Italiana) crosses Casentino Valley to reach Arezzo and, animated by the lively colors of a wonderful nature, invites - not only with words - to visit the beauties of our Apennines.
The initiative, based on a three-year agreement with LFI and with the collaboration of Consorzio Casentino Sviluppo e Turismo, not only aims at promoting the knowledge of the Park and therefore at increasing tourism in the protected area, but also at promoting the use of an ecological means of transport like the train, according to the philosophy of a National Park.
