Monte Campo dei Fiori

Distance: 2 km • Time: 2 hours • Easy

To reach Pensione Irma restaurant car park you need to follow the road signs for the Schiapparelli Astronomical Observatory, you’ll find a large parking lot at the end of the road.

The route starts from the stand in the direction of the Astronomical Observatory going up the rocky staircase and continuing in the direction of the ridge. The trail then changes to the north side of the path and proceeds along the hillside along path n.7 under the top of the observatory, also known as Punta Paradiso.

Continuing on the path from which you can enjoy a view of the Campo dei Fiori Regional Park, you will reach Forte di Orino (path n.1).

Following the road you pass by a picnic area with a small hut and going up the ridge you reach the summit of Monte Campo dei Fiori. At the top you will find a cross and a commemorative shrine set on a rocky wall.
