The Moon Way

An historical bridge between Tuscan and Le Marche

A path to explore the wild nature

The Moon Way connects Badia Tedalda with Borgo Pace, bridging the Tuscan and Marchigian communities in this stretch of the Apennines, traversing small rural settlements and ancient villages where nature remains unspoiled and human intervention has not altered its appearance.
This road has been well travelled over the centuries by wayfarers, merchants, pilgrims, and notable figures in history such as St. Francis, Dante, and Piero della Francesca.
