Route to one of the higher peaks in the Monte di Chianti in Tuscany, Monte San Michele.

Monte San Michele sits in a national park of the same name and there is plenty of signage around. One particular sign indicated the various wildlife to be seen, including wild boar, of which I saw many, and also a beast apparently called 'Lupo' and accompanied by a photo which definitely bore a resemblance to a wolf... my Italian was not up to the full translation, though I understood enough not to dawdle on the way down.

Interesting walking country, the hills are on very much the same scale as ours; but the fertility of the area means thay are vegetated all the way up and thus, virtually inpenetrable off the paths. On the previous day, walking a little further north, I had made the mistake of leaving the path and striking out towards a peak indicated on the map. There is clearly no tradition of peak bagging here, because from the undergrowth, I was the first for a long time and my legs, fetchingly dressed in shorts, short socks and shoes, still bear the scars of the passage.
