Via Vandelli (Emilia Romagna-Tuscany)
Named after the surname of its creator, the route Vandelli is a path that dates back to the end of the 1700s, when it was traced to allow the Duchy of Modena access to the sea. The journey, in fact, connects the city of Modena to Marina di Massa through the Tuscan-Romagnolo Apennines, the Apuan Alps, Garfagnana, and the marble quarries. This walking tour is relatively unknown and inaccessible, but also incredibly fascinating. History, legends and natural beauties are the heart of this journey. Along the way you will encounter, for example, the village of San Pellegrino in Alpe (1525 meters above sea level) where there is the medieval Sanctuary of San Pellegrino, who, according to the legend, during a fight with the Devil slapped him so hard that he took off crashing into the Apuan Alps and forming the Monte Forato which is visible from the village.
