Radicofani- Contignano Gallina

From the post office in Radicofani take the road to the right of the bar and continue along this road for quite a few kilometres until you reach a tarmac road. Cross this road and head into woods along a signed footpath which follows the course of the stream the Socenna, that has to be crossed a few times. The path takes you up a steep hill to a sheep farm Casolare Scansano and just before the farmhouse heads left across the fields passing along the top of the clay hills known as calanchi then goes down through oak and broom to a tarmac road. Go right along this road until you arrive at a turning on the left for the farmhouse il Pero. Take this dirt road, cross the bridge over the river and then go right along the river bank following the trail which then goes up to the left to arrive at the village of Contignano. From the cemetery a dirt road takes you through woods and farmland to arrive at a tarmac road. Cross the road and head up to the left. Take a road to the right which goes over a bridge which crosses the stream the Formone then up past the medieval farming hamlet La Rimbecca and continue onwards for the village of Gallina situated on the main road the Cassia.
