This itinerary is without uphill to ensure effortless enjoyment of the stunning landscapes we will encounter. Our trekking tour through evergreen forests typical of the "Mediterranean Bush" will last around 2 ½ hours including breaks.
The Conero is a mountain of 572 meters, which is located at the centre of the Adriatic coast.
Here you will find 6000 hectares of protected area containing a full 1/3 of the floristic heritage of the Marche region.
Conero has been inhabited since the Paleolithic (Stone Age - 2 million years ago to 10, 000 years ago). For sailors and local tribes it's orientation as a peninsula was strategically important. The area and its surrounding land are seen from both the sea or from the ground. Greeks, Romans and Piceni walked on Conero.
