From Fiesole to Felsina, the Etruscans traveled it to develop their trade and ensure their domination over the Po Valley for at least 4 centuries (VII-IV century A. C.). Then the Romans, having founded in 189 a.C. the colony of Bononia, felt the need to guarantee a connection with Arezzo and Rome passing through the Apennines and built, on the Etruscan route, a real road, still visible nowadays . Even in the Middle Ages it was not lost the habit of walking or riding this ancient route, however the easiest way to cross the Apennines. Thus, the Roman paving was replaced by a simple path, mule-style, without paving, narrower, used by travelers who had the need to walk the path.
This and much more is the Via degli Dei, a combination of historical, cultural, environmental and enogastronomic excellences that will amaze you, leaving you speechless sometimes, others without breath ....!
