"La via degli Dei" is a path rebuilt starting from the 90s during archaeological excavations that crosses numerous places of naturalistic and landscape interest, in some points the paths pass right on the ancient road pavements still surviving after 2000 years of history.
The road retraces the paths used in the Middle Ages and even earlier by the Romans and Etruscans as a link between Bologna and Fiesole, both cities of Etruscan foundation.
The name "Via degli Dei" derives from the various localities and mountains that are crossed along the way such as Monte Adone, Monte Luario (the goddess of the Moon), Monzuno (which derives from "Monte di Giove") and Monte Venere.
