Unfortunately the weather forecast today was for fog and rain but I set off nevertheless from our little apartment in Bologna. Like most old Italian buildings, there is a huge front door .
Every now and then the fog lifted a little allowing glimpses of the surrounding hills
As you would expect, the path was muddy and wet so my socks were soon wet through. However, I followed the road through the hills which follows closely the original Etruscan route and I’m sure it was a lot dryer than the alternate path. The alternative follows the river valley and is usually recommended as it avoids the bitumen and traffic. But after my terrible experience on that path the other week, I avoided it (see my last post!)
