From Pieve Torina there is a road that enters the mountains and climbs gently up the expansive pastures of Costaruzza and Massa Profoglio. Amid the ruins of medieval watchtowers, horses that make fortunes at the great jousts of Foligno, Siena and Ascoli still run today. After passing through the woods and over the mountains, we will glide from above on to the alluring plains of Colfiorito.
