The Monte Fumaiolo area is in the southernmost part of Romagna, in the municipality of Verghereto, on the border with Tuscany and the Marche region.

Why visit it

With its altitude of 1407 m, Fumaiolo is one of the highest mountains in the Forlì-Cesena Apennine area. Apart from being a spot of uncontaminated nature, it is ideal for several sports such as trekking, mountain biking, free climbing, horseback riding and winter sports in the snow.

When to go and what to see

Monte Fumaiolo is one of the most fascinating peaks in the Forlì-Cesena Apennines because of its typical scenery. The whole area is environmentally protected: a tourist destination in summer and winter.

There are ski-lifts, cross-country skiing tracks and ski slopes; the resort is equipped for snowboards, spine, tubing and snowshoeing. The Biancaneve mountain hut ski, boot and mountain bike rentals.

The cross-country skiing track, known as "Fumaiolo ring", is 5 km long and reaches the sources of the Tiber river. It is of standard width, entirely levelled and beaten down, with tracks in both directions and the central part for skating. There are no special difficulties, obstacles or dangers. It is suitable also for expert cross-country skiers.

There are three ski slopes, two of them are 800 m and one is 1 km long. They are of average difficulty, classified as red slopes, all equipped with ski lifts and an artificial snow system. From an initial 1473 metres, you go down to 1270 m above sea level.

Near its peak, 1268 m high, there is the source of the Tiber, the "sacred river for the fate of Rome" which flows through the village of Balze di Verghereto, then reaches Tuscany. This is also where the river Savio and the river Marecchia originate.

With Monte Aquilone and Monte Comero, Fumaiolo is famous thanks to its imposing beech forests, known as "Faggete", which can be visited following an easy network of paths, on foot or by mountain bike.

On Monte Fumaiolo there are several hotels and restaurants which provide both board and lodging.

Do not miss

From the peak of mount Fumaiolo, and from Pratone della Briglia nearby, there is a breathtaking panoramic view over most of the peninsula, from the Romagna seaside to the Tuscan hills, as far as Monte Amiata, from the Apennine peaks in Marche to the hills of the Umbria region.
