The Romagna side of the mountain is tough also, and the roads require concentration. A special thanks goes out to the Montone River and to its valley which is so inspiring. Reaching San Benedetto in Alpe, hiking lovers can put down their kickstand and explore the waterfalls of Acquacheta (a quick excursion of three hours), which is even mentioned by Dante.
SS67 has lots of distractions, such as the deviation off to the right towards the Manzo Pass, past Bocconi, or stop and see the smallest volcano in Italy to the left, on SP22 of the Monte Busca pass. The final handful of kilometers brings us to the Portico di Romagna, which has lots of nice hotels and fine Artusi-inspired restaurants.
