The “via peregrinorum”, which has always run through Bagno di Romagna, in ancient times was traveled by the devout Romans to cross the Apennines and reach Rome. Today, that road of faith, is an evocative mule track that has become CAI path no. 177 marked and tabulated.
The route starts south of Bagno di Romagna, where you go through a valley where you find the gorge of the Gualchiere ditch. The mule track reaches the confluence of the Fosso del Chiuso which can be crossed thanks to a stone bridge. Shortly thereafter begins the climb that faces a ridge towards the vast plains of Nasseto: here a magnificent avenue of maples and oaks indicates the ancient route, which followed on the half coast, and then be immersed in the beech forest that covers the Sugaring mountain. After numerous hairpin bends, you get to Passo Serra where a stump recalls the ancient route.
The length of the itinerary is 5 km for a journey time of 2/3 hours. Medium difficulty.
