Monte Gottero and its breathtaking panorama
Orario & Sede
We are located on the Ligurian Crinale di Levante, a natural and political border between different peoples and peoples and for this reason linked by economic relations and cultural exchanges.
Territory of the historic Lunigiana, crossed by the Alta Via dei Monti Liguri.
The itinerary starts from the Cappelletta Pass (1050m asl) to go straight into the Bocca del Lupo (1300m asl), the wood with its changing seasonal colors will accompany us. Having reached the summit at 1639 m above sea level, from here the view opens out over the Apuan Alps to the SE to the Gulf of La Spezia, the coastal chain of the Cinque Terre and the mountains of the high Petronio, Sturla, Trebbia, Aveto, Staffora and Taro valleys. A large stretch of the Ligurian Sea is visible even on moderately clear days; if we are lucky we will see Elba and Corsica. We will continue downhill to the Foce dei Tre Confini (1416 msl) to return along the Emilian side of the mountain.
