What travellers are saying
- This place is beautiful! There's a boat that goes on the lake, but we haven't tried it. The drive there is simply stunning - Driving through think forest with extremely tall trees. The lake itself is gorgeous. Blue-sh green-ish color. We walked for about an hour or so on the trail that goes around the lake, which was fun.Written 3 July 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- We've visited Bagno twice now, and our 4 year old son loves the gnome walk. If you think of all of the income generated by the gnomes for the town - including all the souvenirs sold - its a shame that a small amount of that income is not directed to maintaining the gnome houses. The path itself is fine, and on our last visit the fences had obviously recently been repaired. But the houses - one house (the library) had been badly damaged, with the door ripped off and the wooden books disturbed by presumably little hands. Our 4 year old was disturbed as to why the house was 'messed up'. The other houses are falling to pieces, with roofs falling off and lots of mud splattered up over the windows so its not possible to see inside. The spider's web had fallen down, and again we had to make up a story for our child as to why this was the case. Yes, there is a high influx of visitors, but why not have a weekly or monthly program of maintenance, paid for by the tourist tax (!) to maintain and repair the gnome walk. Its a shame, as its a lovely idea that is just not maintained very well.Written 18 May 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- A good place to get away from the heat of the valley. Relax by the little fishing lake or pop in for lunch at one of the two lakeside restaurants.Written 31 August 2016This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- This hiking trail is one of dozens of official trails of the National Park "Foreste Casentinesi, Falterona and Campigna", a Park which stretches between Tuscany and Romagna Apennines. So the route is described in detail in the National Park Trail Guide.
But it's very easy to navigate even without guidebook. The trail is indeed well-marked, by the typical white and red signals of the Italian Alpine Club, wherever the itinerary may give rise to misunderstandings.
The trailhead is at the south end of Bagno di Romagna town: you have to look (or ask) for the no. 189 path, which is just at the west side of the highway, parallel to the path for "Chiardovo" source.
The trail climbs gradually, from about 500 mts in Bagno until just over 1000 mts., through a lonely valley, firstly dotted with some isolated houses, then uninhabited (bring packed lunch!).
After about 2.5 hours you will reach a dirt road: it's the road running on the ridge between the valleys of Savio and Bidente rivers.
The view from here is then sweeping across the two valleys. If you want to have a further wide view you have to climb 100 mts more, up to the summit of the nearby Mount Carpano, which gives its name to the trail (but this obviously is not essential).
To go back towards Bagno di Romagna you have to walk the dirt road on your left, for about 1Km. Where there is a bar closing the road to vehicles, be careful: on the left the path begins that leads you downhill: it's the no. 185 one.
It takes another 2.5 hours to get off at Bagno. Towards the end of the down path (which is even more lonely than the uphill one), the trail approaches to the creek bank, where, in a picturesque corner, there is a barbecue available to travelers (but you have to carry your meat…).
In the last 1.5 Km you will follow (left) the paved highway to return to Bagno.
The most delightful feature of this trail is - apart its scenic features - its shadow: oaks, hornbeams, beeches, pines, white fir trees, allow you to walk comfortably even in the summer; unless it's really hot, but which at this height it's quite rare.Written 6 June 2017This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
