Il cammino di Leonardo

Walking route in Sogliano al Rubicone, Forlì-Cesena, Emilia-Romagna, Italy

7.2 km and does not present particular difficulties. The total travel time is calculated in 2.30 hours. Initially we start towards the municipal sports ground along the path 115 and proceed towards the aqueduct and the river Uso. A natural curtain of reeds leads to a forest characterized by the presence of black pine, ancient oaks, elderberry trees and various bushes of brambles. You soon reach the town of Ponte Uso. After having skirted for a while the riverbed faces a rather demanding but short climb towards the S. Donato di Vignola Park. In the park there are two “concavities”, realized on Leonardo’s drawings: they are conical cavities dug into the ground that in ancient times were used by shepherds to amplify the sounds of the horns, thus allowing communication over long distances. Inside the park we also point out the Tempietto di San Donato, an ancient oratory today dedicated to peace and adorned with a solar clock. Leaving the park you reach the nearby Church of Vignola: behind the escarpment stands the centuries-old Roverella di Vignola, 18 meters high and with a circumference of the trunk of 3.4 meters. The last stop before reaching Sogliano is near the great Vitruvian Man’s artifact, also realized on drawings by Leonardo da Vinci

For MTB Lovers

Nessun testo alternativo automatico disponibile.

The first part of this itinerary is along the flat as far as Ponte Verrucchio (km 35), passing through Covignano, S. Ermete and Santarcangelo. The road then starts to climb for the 4 km to Verrucchio and then rises steeply to Mount Ventoso. The first 500 metres here are killing, with a gradient of 18%, but eke out your energy because you have to climb for over 10 km.
Once you’re over the brow, the cycling will be easier on the way back to Rimini via Faetano, Ospedaletto and S. Salvatore. This route of average difficulty covers 87 km with a total change of level of 1100 metres. In view of the gradients on Mount Ventoso, we recommend a 39×25 set-up.
