Shortcut Walking Diary


Our guide escorts us on the softly winding path up to the Appenine highlands, mountains peaks towering beyond the sky. Today our maximum ascend height is around 500 metres reaching the peak of the Montevesole. We pass ancient historical routes where Spartacus lost his last battles and enjoy beautiful natural waterfalls, in ancient times considered holy water. Spectacular views on hills, valleys and mountains with the ocean line behind and the variety of vegetation and habitats with very old trees and forests constitute an extraordinary day.....


EATING THE VIEW. On the peak of the Monte Vesole a picnic with specialties of this area and a nice glass of characteristic wine are waiting for us.....

Afterwards walking on easy tracks we arrive at the small inn. Our charming hosts are passionately fond of cuisine, garden and fruit-growing. The inn is situated in an exclusive position above the small mediaeval village center ( about 5 minutes of walk) in a large private property with own gardens and woods.....
