Lago degli Idoli, Monte Falterona
At the source of the Arno on Mount Falterona
A route through nature and castles to get to the source of the "silver river"

This route for cars leaves from Stia in Casentino, passing castles, churches and hamlets in a place that was often visited in olden days by the early Etruscans. In fact, while crossing the Apennines they used to throw religious statuettes into the so-called Lago degli Idoli (the Lake of Idols) to bring favour to their voyage.
