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 Ultra-Trail® Via degli Dei 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.
