Muraglione Pass - Ph. Gianni Careddu

The Muraglione Pass is one of the most popular passes for motorcyclists. It owes its name to the large stone wall built in 1836, which allows you to shelter when the strong winds typical of Mugello blow.

The much shorter itinerary that we propose foresees the passage in the heart of the green of the Romagna Apennines. The pass was born thanks to the creation of the road that connects Pisa to Ravenna, 245 km long and passable in about 4 hours.

Altitude (meters above sea level) 908
Length 245 Km
connection Pisa - Ravenna
Number of hairpin bends  
Winter closure  
Road conditions and notes Good conditions. Very busy in the summer.

Route

We start from Forlì along the SS67 we reach Castrocaro Terme and Terra del sole, villages made famous by their spas. We follow the course of the Montone river towards Dovadola, San Ruffino up to the Rocca San Casciano and its luxuriant woods.

From Rocca San Casciano we cross Casanova, Portico San Benedetto up to San Benedetto in Alpe, to arrive at the edge of the Casentino forests in Toscana. Only 5 kilometers of climbing await us and the Muraglione pass will be conquered.

Advice and curiosity

The pass is often the subject of criticism because it is often crossed at insane speed by those who unfortunately mistake it for a variant of Mugello. There are also numerous speed cameras, so we always recommend the utmost caution and a moderate speed also to enjoy the truly enchanting Apennine landscape.
