At the source of Rome’s sacred river
Monte Fumaiolo is one of the highest and most fascinating peaks of the Forlì-Cesena Apennines, at 1,407 metres above sea level. It offers beautiful landscapes, vistas on unspoilt nature and numerous activities, including trekking, mountain biking, free climbing, horse riding and winter snow sports.
Mount Fumaiolo is famous for its impressive beech forests, the so-called “Faggete”, and for being the source of the Tiber River. Its modern name is said to derive from the appellation “Fiumaiolo” – Maker of Rivers – precisely owing to its wealth of springs.
If the weather permits and the day is clear, you can climb to the summit to enjoy breath-taking 360-degree views: your gaze will sweep from the Adriatic coast to the Tuscan hills, crossing Monte Amiata and fall on the peaks of the Marche Apennines to the Umbrian hills. Monte Fumaiolo is a spectacular window overlooking the beauty of central Italy.
