Route of the Abbots Way in the Nure Valley
Itinerary across the Piacenza Apennines, the route of the ancient Abbots of Bobbio.
The monks who travelled from the monastery of San Colombano in Bobbio towards Pontremoli, crossed the Apennines using a road that has now been named the Abbots Way. This route crosses the Nure Valley within the municipal territory of Farini. Here are some ideas of where you could stop on the way ..
When you reach the lands of the Nure Valley coming from Coli, the first stop is undoubtedly the Cappelletta Pass, with the chapel of the Beata Vergine del Carmelo. The area is dominated by Monte Aserei. Descending into the valley in the direction of Farini, you could stop at Mareto.
In the spring of 2013 there have been reports of problems along the route on account of the heavy rains. It is therefore strongly advised before setting out to consult the site www.viadegliabati.com particularly the sections 'percorso' ' traccia su google maps'
