The route physically connects the Via Francigena to the Montalbano and in particular those of Vinci.
The route crosses a fascinating landscape closely linked to the water course, passing from the gentle hills at the foot of the Montalbano to the vast flat areas of the Padule di Fucecchio.
The stretch of the Comune of Vinci 'the Via del Vincio' is closely linked to the figure of Leonardo da Vinci, and also to his mother Caterina.
It is in fact the connection path between the historic center and the town of San Pantaleo where the residence of Caterina and her family is proven.
The Via del Vincio runs along the entire water course of the same name, passing through the Municipalities of Vinci, Cerreto Guidi and Fucecchio, for a total of 16.7 km.
It crosses over to San Pantaleo, Lazzeretto, Stabbia, Massarella and Torre.
At the end of the path, near the beautiful Medici bridge of Ponte a Cappiano, the Vincio flows into the Usciana canal to enter the Via Francigena.
The entire route crosses areas of value from the point of view of the landscape and the surrounding nature and is easily passable on foot, by mountain bike and on horseback.
