Route details
San Benedetto in Alpe - Mollino dei Romiti - Cascata Acquacheta - Balze Trafossi - Monte di Londa - Prato Andreaccio - San Benedetto in Alpe

The destination of this itinerary is one of the best renowned waterfalls in Emilia-Romagna, which pours down from a magnificent marnstone-sandstone sloping cliff. A force of nature which is also the result of a sort of “fluvial drainage”, carried out around the year one thousand by a settlement of Benedictine monks. This route is a classic excursion on the Appennines between Tuscany and Emilia Romagna and it winds through an uncultivated valley, accompanied by the rumbling of the stream, following the path taken by Dante during his exile from Florence.

Not to be missed:
the waterfall is a true masterpiece of nature. When water levels are high the scene is impressive also thanks to the roaring noise of water, which explains the “ acoustic” comparison made by“Dante with the ”infernal” Flegetonte.

One of the most ancient abbeys on the Appennine: There is documentation of the existence of a group of hermits dating back to the X century. This is where, 100 years later, Saint Romuald stopped before moving further south and founded the Camaldoli Hermitage.
