Le Marche: Hiking Between The Thousand-Years old Abbeys

Two stunning abbeys, on the border between Umbria and Marche, together will provide a day of very strong suggestion.
The Abbey of Sitria and the Holy Cross Monastery of Fonte Avellana, two age-old monasteries immersed into the nature of the Monte Catria and a rich historical heritage. The impressive summit of the Monte Catria and Balza Aquila stand next to the travelers path that joines the abbeys.

What should I bring?

Hiking shoes, hat, water, lunch box, waterproof jacket.
