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 called “Flaminia Militare”.
The Flaminia Militare Trail mainly follows these ancient tracks and between Mount Bastione and Mount of Fò, passes next to some fine pavements of the roman road, now rediscovered.
