Sport on Monte Amiata

(Thomas, ski instructor, with a class)

Monte Amiata in the winter is a magical place. Enjoying the season, the relax and feast with friends and family. The top of the volcano covered with”winter sculptures", the Fiaccole (burning torches in the villages), go horse riding, or of course go skiing. We have skiing instructors for adults and children. For Christmas the small towns that surround the mountain organize the traditional “Fiaccole”, concerts, and the churches have the Christmas atmosphere. New Year is always a fantastic party with live music and amusement. The Italian tradition for the end of the feasts is Epiphany where the witches take the party’s and flies away.
