A long journey in the northern Apennines

The Alta Via dei Parchi leaves from Berceto, near the Cisa Pass, in the Province of Parma, and goes up to the Verna cliff, stretching over the Casentino and then reaching the hermitage on Mount Carpegna, in the Sasso Simone and Simoncello Park.

The itinerary is divided into 27 stages through the Apennines between Emilia-Romagna, Tuscany and the Marche, crossing 10 provinces (Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Bologna, Ravenna, Forlì-Cesena, Rimini, Lucca, Massa Carrara and Pesaro-Urbino): 500 kilometres of ascents and descents that combine two national parks, five regional parks and one interregional one, allowing to discover the best that the Apennine mountains have to offer.
