Via degli Dei: The historic route that connects Bologna to Florence

via degli dei
 
The historical centers of Bologna and Florence are connected by an ancient path crossing all the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines as well as retracing parts of the ancient Flaminia Military Roman Road 
 
From Fiesole to Felsina, the Etruscans walked this path in order to develop their trade and extend their domain on the Po Valley for at least four centuries (VII-IV cent. BC). It was then that the Romans, having founded the colony of Bononia in 189 BC, felt the need to ensure a connection  to Arezzo and Rome passing through the Apennines and they built, along the Etruscan trail, a real road. Even in the Middle Ages people continued to walk or ride this ancient path considered as the easiest way to cross the Apennines. Thus, the Roman paving was replaced by a simple path, a sort of narrower muletrack without paving, used only by travelers who needed to go along this route. Today the “Via degli Dei” (Way of Gods) has become one of the main tourist attractions of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines: many lovers of trekking and mountain biking can follow a path full of history while enjoying the pristine beauty of these places. The itinerary can be divided into 4 or more stages (on foot depending on walkers’ skills) or into two or more stages (by bike), the path is not very difficult.
