We begin on the right bank of the Bisenzio, in via Don Dino Pizzicori, reachable with the SS325. Cross the foot bridge over the river and continue along the small road that leads to the walking path to reach the centre of the Vaiano, a small village with many historically important buildings, including the Abbey of San Salvatore, of Lombard origins and dating to the 11th century. Cross east through the town to continue toward Sofignano, which will welcome you with its medieval Melegrana tower.
After less than a kilometre, you’ll begin a brief stretch of dirt road that will transform again into asphalt as you continue. Eventually you’ll come to a fork in the road: take via Docciola to get to the Parish Church of Santi Vito e Modesto, with a portico and bell tower and which in the Middle Ages was one of the main centres for the spread of Christianity in the Val Bisenzio. Continuing on the main road, you’ll come close to the so-called Black House, a 13th-century fortified residence with a large tower built using alberese stone. From here, take the unpaved trail that, after about a kilometre, links up with the asphalt road around the Church of Santi Andrea e Donato in Savignano, also built with the typical white alberese stone from the Calvana mountain.
