Above the village of Montegonzi surrounded by thousands of olive trees is Borgo di Fontebussi, an ancient Roman hamlet that has been restored with great respect for the original features. The village is just a brisk walk away, and from Borgo di Fontebussi there are plenty of opportunities for hiking and cycling in the breathtaking and wild Casentinodal.
