The Libro Aperto is undoubtedly the most frequented mountain in the Abetone area. Its incline is slight and accessible to all. The mountain consists of two peaks—Mount Belvedere on the Tuscan side and Mount Rotondo on the Emilian side. The name comes from the fact that it resembles an open book. The area’s vegetation is characterized by rich Alpine flora, white oak woods, pine woods and blackberry bushes. Visitors can glimpse the Campolino Nature Reserve from afar.
