Loved by locals and travellers alike

From the The Dublin Review, Volume 49, 1861, over 160 years ago:

“The writer of these pages had the good fortune some years ago to encounter a party of young Irishmen in the grey mist of an October morning, on the summit of Monte Gennaro. […] All of them had the genuine enthusiasm of mountain travellers, and were probably as proud of their night-excursion as any one who has ascended Mont Blanc.”

How to get there: 

By car: The most convenient way to get to the meeting point in Marcellina is by car. To optimize and reduce the number of cars, if you are comfortable with sharing a car seat, we can get you in touch with other participants who can provide or a looking for a car ride.

By bus: While it is not possible to get to the starting point by public transport, there is an option to get to the first meeting point in Marcellina by bus. This option can be useful if you have been in touch with other participants who can give you a car lift from Marcellina, but not from Rome.
From the Ponte Mammolo subway station in Rome, take the bus to Marcellina (Cotral bus), which takes one hour (get off at the stop “Via Gramsci”). From there, it’s a short walk to the meeting point.

Note: the precise meeting point will be sent to you in your confirmation email.
