Gothic Line Trail Start
Hiking along the Gothic Line in Alto Mugello
Excursion in the Giogo-Casaglia Park through the traces of history

In the Giogo-Casaglia Park, there are several thematic trails suitable for all kind of hikers, including children. One of the most fascinating is the Gothic Line Ring Route that takes us through the traces of history, including a stretch of the defensive line built by the German army during the final stages of the Italian campaign.

In particular, in the Giogo area there were terrible battles, the signs of which can be seen during the walk. The ring route is a medium level hiking trail, about 5 km long to be covered in 2 and a half hours with an uphill climb of 140 meters.

On your way to the Giogo Pass we recommend you stop by the Museum of the Tuscan Gothic Line in Ponzalla. Here, you can discover more about the Gothic Line and the history of the men who fought here with particular attention to the significant events that happened in September 1944, when the area between the Futa Pass and the Giogo Pass was the scene of terrible battles.
