We will collect you from Berceto rail station and whisk you into the ancient pilgrims hillside pathways… It is incredible… and sits in the heart of Cisa Porcini DPO consortzio.

The walks start with the ritual of collecting fresh mountain water from the ancient spring.  The taste is wonderful.  From there we stroll alongside the river and take the track up through the aromatic pine forests… the lungs say a huge thank you at this point!

Walking for 20 minutes we reach the levelling out within the cool canopy of pines – we settle next to a 16th century ruin and get into a refreshing snack with a locally made picnic setting including benches and tables.

From here we can rummage around looking for the fantastic Porcini mushrooms.


Lunch has a fabulous rustic option or two!!

We can visit a superb famous Porcini restaurant Manubiola in the next village or opt for a roasted pizza at the superb Bar Jasoni at the  foot of the hill.

… the food like everything else here, is absolutely out of this world.

On weekends the regional art gallery is open (just 25m from the pizzeria) with a fascinating artist on display – the perfect after-lunch relaxer.

The village is surrounded by superb walks and pathways so enjoy yourselves and take to the hills.
