The path starts from the center of Vinci near the ancient Mill of La Doccia, mentioned by Leonardo da Vinci in the Codex Atlanticus. It is a circular route that surrounds a small hill called 'Poggio di Marradino', suitable for a short excursion just outside the city and to admire the beautiful view of the Conti Guidi Castle. This route is in fact a Leonardo da Vinci itinerary as the Genius here designed an artificial lake, as illustrated in three maps (RLW 12675/12676 and Codex Atlanticus fg.952r). The project involved the construction of a small dam for the accumulation of water to be used for irrigation or as a reserve of hydraulic energy. From the path of the Poggio di Marradino it is possible to deviate on San Lorenzo road (path 8A) towards Faltognano, a place known for its centuries-old holm oak (registered in the Monumental Trees Register of the Tuscany Region) which stands imposingly in the panoramic square in front of the ancient church. The path can also be followed starting from the Ripalta parking area.
