The pierced marble mountain
One of the most beautiful tuscan natural monuments. We’ll walk across beeches forests, fairy ruins and rocky ridges. At the top a giant natural arch 35 meters high we’ll be surrounded by the most famous peaks of the Apuan Alps. This is the dreamplace of every hiker!
The complete loop of Mt.Forato is one of the most beautiful itineraries of the Apuan Alps. Until the arrival to the arch the itinerary follows the intermediate one. The path continues ascending ridgelines and grassy peaks and we arrive at the foot of the Pania della Croce (1858m). The view of the peak is really dramatic and the descent follows the path of the ancient shepherds.
Meters of ascent: 900 m+
