Coming from the north, the first relief encountered on the Adriatic belt is Il Monte San Bartolo Natural Park, on the border between Marche and Romagna.
The territory has two distinct environments: the cliff to the sea and the internal side.
At the base of the hill runs a thin beach of gravel and pebbles.
The highest altitudes of the San Bartolo hills reach 200 meters and extend over a wild and intact territory, a real jewel, albeit not yet known and little known, among wisely restored ancient charm villages and typical restaurants that offer authentic and genuine cuisine.
