Monte Forato natural Arc 1230 m, is famous for being the biggest natural arc Italy has to offer and also the biggest swing since it's possible to book the experience.
This is the Apuan Alps Regional Park, yes Tuscany has it's own Alps, home of the world famous Carrara Marble, Michelangelo's fav's, you can explore the caves, hundreds of them both operative or abandoned. Eat the good'ole soul warming wild haunted mountain tuscan cousine. You can even ski if you like, just head to the Abetone ski resort for some steep slopes and whenever climate change forget to be so damn actual even good powder.

Photography Tips

A wide angle optic is necessary for this spot, the arc it's pretty big, it can fit a 10 floors building.
With clouds everything looks more dramatic, dress up in a proper way, it's a 1230 m spot nearby the seaside so the weather changes quickly, the N/W Riviera is the rainiest area of Italy

Travel Information

First get in northern Tuscany, Pisa, Florence or Bologna airport, second visit Lucca rather then Pisa, because Pisa is disappointing, Lucca is surprising, that's why, then focus on the tuscan aemilian appennine range, set Fornovolasco on your GPS and once there follow the hike to Monteforato, walk for about 2 panormic hours, there you are.
