The Via degli Dei is a path of about 130 km that connects Piazza Maggiore in Bologna and Piazza della Signoria in Florence. The route retraces an ancient road that the Romans used, called Flaminia Militare, at the time Bologna was called Felsinea; in fact, along the way you will come across Roman cobblestones belonging to 187 BC.

The route was recovered around the 90s, during archaeological excavations as traces of ancient Roman roads were found that connected Felsinea (Bologna) to Fiesole.

The name Via degli Dei derives from the name of the various localities and mountains that are crossed along the way such as Monte Adone, Monte Luario, Monzuno (which derives from “Monte di Giove”) and Monte Venere.
