Dante’s Walk is a great route through some of Italy’s most beautiful medieval villages and ancient Christian hermitages. On the way, you’re sure to meet plenty of typically friendly, straightforward Romagna folk and lots of proud, cheerful, straight-talking Tuscans.
Passing as it does through a picturesque area strewn with medieval castles and villages, Dante’s Walk takes in many of Italy’s loveliest and best-known little towns.
Take the chance to visit beautiful Brisighella, Portico di Romagna and San Benedetto in Alpe, set in a delightful stretch of country threaded by rivers and dotted with waterfalls offering a blissfully refreshing summer dip. As you head down towards the plain, pop into Dovadola, an old town belonging to the Guidi family where Dante stayed for a few months.
Like many hikes, Dante’s Walk is liberally sprinkled with places to eat, drink and sleep; show your Wayfarer’s Credential for a discount. Demand is high, and supply is limited, so book well in advance.
