In the territory of Bagno di Romagna we find a fairly easy, well-marked route, developed over three stages, which winds its way from the town of San Piero in Bagno along the secondary ridge and through the fertile hills that slope down towards the river Savio.

Among fields, farms and small villages, the itinerary follows a fairly short route, which is recommended to be undertaken in the autumn and spring seasons, ending with a typical dinner in one of the many restaurants in the area.

An excursion in the cooler season is recommended, ending with a fine dinner in one of the excellent restaurants in San Piero in Bagno.

If you are interested in horseback riding routes, we propose another one to extend your break in nature on horseback.

  • First stop - Towards Paganico San Piero in Bagno

    We set off from San Piero in Bagno along via Verdi, which leads from piazza Allende to the 19th-century stone bridge over the Rio di Paganico.

    After crossing it, take the mule track on the left that climbs sideways to the municipal road as far as the hamlet of Paganico and Rio Salso.

    In a short time, you reach the farms of Raggio di Sotto and Raggio di Sopra: here the mule track joins an asphalt road, which you follow as far as the junction for Paganico.

  • Second stop - The Passo del Carnaio San Piero in Bagno

    Having reached Paganico, we continue along the road until we come to a dirt track on the right that leads along the green slopes of a small valley until we meet the b/r signs of the Val di Bagno Trek and CAI path nr. 201.

    Travelling between the Petrose cleft and the Savio valley, you will soon reach the Carnaio Pass, where you can admire a beautiful panorama of the Foreste Casentinesi National Park and the wooded slopes of Monte Còmero.

  • Third stop - Valcava and St. Silvestro's church San Piero in Bagno

    Having taken the SP. 26 road from San Piero to Santa Sofia, we follow it until we come to a new dirt track on the right, marked b/r 201.

    The route passes below the houses of Tramonte and then joins a road that, coming from Montegranelli, heads in the direction of Monte Mescolino, drawing a wide semicircle.

    When we reach Valle degli Stenti, we begin to descend towards the 17th-century nucleus of Valcava and the hamlet of S. Silvestro, whose church, located on a hillock, is visible from all sides.

    From here we ascend to the right towards Trino and then to the high hill of Montegranelli. At the fork, we begin to descend along the municipal road that, at the bottom of the valley, joins the SP 26 again: just one kilometre and we are back in S. Piero in Bagno.
