Rochette di Fazio

Rochette di Fazio is a little hamlet on the top of a hill opposite the WWF nature reserve. This walk takes you down to the Albegna river and then up to Rochette (4 hours there and back). On leaving Podere Sant’Angelo turn right and walk down the gravel road until the last farmhouse (5km). Follow the road to the left of the farmhouse down to the river. You walk along the right hand side of a stream until you are forced to cross the stream where you can see the Albegna river. Here you can continue along the Albegna river to the ‘gorge’ where there are pools of lovely cool water (it can be very hot here in the summer). The path up to Rochette starts on the left just after you cross over the stream. Take this path and you come to an unmade road. Here you can choose the old old mule trail that starts on the left (it’s steep in places) and goes up through the woods to Rochette. For an easier walk follow the road to the right. Rochette is very picturesque and has a good osteria ‘Il Piccolo Borgo’ (call ahead to check it’s open: 0564 986173).
