Ring Tour of History and Memory

Length: km 15

Consigliato: individuals, small groups

Note: Height difference of 471 m

Type: Itineraries on foot

This is certainly the most intense tour, excursionwise as well as culturewise. Start off at Abbadia a Isola towards Castel Petraio. Here, traces left by remote history are numerous: from the Etruscan period up until the Modern Age, people left deep traces, changed landscape features, and turned the ancient fortified villages into farmsteads. All along this route, in addition to the ancient ruins of castles like Montauto, S. Giovanni, and Castellare, you can find deep traces and memories of the more recent Partisan struggle during World War II, like the cruel slaughter of partisans that took place at Casa Giubileo. From there, step aside the main route and follow the CAI trailmarker 100 to learn more about that event on information boards. Soon you will arrive at Abbadia a Isola.
