Hello my Stemians friends!

I'd like show you in this last part some path photos that I did when I visited the fortress, and some options that you can do it to visit it.

There are fours routs (that I know) to get there:

  1. In the Caprona's Town: behind the Caprona's tower from westside there is a road partially driveway.
  2. In the Uliveto Terme's Town: on the west flank of Mount Verruca, behind the quarries of Uliveto Terme's town there is a walking trail.
  3. In the Vicopisano's Town: This is the most longer rout and totaly driveway, and starts Vicopisano est. You must have of a comunity permesio to drive in this road.
  4. Nicosia's Convent - Calci's Valley Town: I did this last one , and I walked in a path about one and half hour.

What I recommend if you choose the Nicosia's path:

  • Trekking shoes or a good tennis.
  • Water
  • Snacks
  • Raincoat
  • Switchblade

You can ask a map in the Calci's community with all the region's path, which includes the Verruca's Fortress path. It's free.

To guide if you must follow the signs with two stripes - white and red - that you'll find along the path.
