Flaminia “militare” Road Segment 4
BRENTO (BRINTUM) to BOLOGNA (BONONIA)
This segment always develops in altitude in the Apennines with alignment Fiesole-Bologna and follows the watershed crest of the Savena torrent and the river Reno bypassing mount Adone and many treacherous ravines.
After Brento we can follow a trail studied by Prof. Alvise running through a forest to the modern road.
Hence there is no more trace of the Via Flaminia “militare” and we can only guess that the current road can be superimposed on the old Roman path.
Near Bologna, before descending rapidly, we can enjoy open views as the road is particularly steep.
