Morning excursion to the Colli Bassi e Alti area, among coniferous woods and dry stone walls, to "read" and interpret the landscape around Pescasseroli. This charming village is located at 1167m and despite its height it is completely located on the plain. Along the hike you will be able to know the story here stratified century after century, thanks to signs we will encounter along our path.
