La Via dei Castelli

Arcevia and its castles, set in the green of the woods, between high walls where time has stopped.
Path of medium-high difficulty for the many climbs, which however are short and with modest slope. Surely the beauty of this path makes you forget the fatigue. Accessible all year round, but recommended especially in spring-summer and autumn. The roads are almost free of traffic. You must stop and visit Arcevia and its castles that you meet along the way.


Please refer to the websites and to the classic tourist guides for information on the sites of historical, cultural and naturalistic interest that are found along the route.
