74 KMS – 1340 ELEVATION – 7/8 DIFFICULTY – RECOMMENDED SEASON: Spring & Autumn
TWO CLIMBS iN ONE DAY, MONTE CALDERARO and MONTE DELLE FORMICHE
Monte Calderaro and Monte delle Formiche are two pretty challenging climbs, both of them have a few km where the slope goes above 16%. It looks like a short trip, but it requires some determination.
Do not worry too much, fields and woods that are surrounding the small streets for the whole climb are paying back the fatigue. Sometimes I think it is good that I don’t check too carefully my routes before leaving, so I can get lost, I can face unexpected difficulties, change my direction along the way. On the top of Monte delle Formiche you can also spend a moment at the Sanctuary, pilgrimage destination between Val Idice and Val di Zena.
