This hike is of medium difficulty, lasting a full day, and let you discover the heart of Conero Park, through a fascinating ring-route.

Difficulty: medium.
Duration: approximately 5 hours.

Starting from the medieval town of Sirolo, at the foot of the Conero, you will go back through the path of the old stone quarries, up to panoramic balconies at Pian Grande and Raggetti Plateu.

After a picnic or a quick lunch in the restaurant in the area of the former Convent of Camaldolesi, you will begin the path back to Sirolo, along the cliffs on the bay of the "Two Sisters", through views of startling beauty.

A journey through different natural environments, from the garrigue of Raggetti Plateau to the reforestation of coniferous and deciduous trees, form the copse of beeches, maples and flowering ash to the low shrubs of the Mediterranean scrub.

Bring a camera to capture unforgettable views, such as the rolling hills and breathtaking views of the sea of the Conero Riviera.

An itinerary that can be enriched by visiting important sites of historical and archaeological interest: the abbey of St. Peter, the prehistoric rock carvings and the Roman caves, impressive stone quarries dating back to the first century BC.

The tour also features a transit at the panoramic balconies of Pian Grande and at the northen viewpoint, favoured points for spotting the many raptors that pass on the Conero during the spring migration or that choose the rocky cliffs as their ideal habitat.
