Rifugio Cesare Battisti

Chalet in Parco Nazionale dell'Appennino Tosco-Emiliano

The region's best mountain hut, located alongside one of Italy's great long-distance walking trails, the three-week, 375km-long Grande Escursione Appennenica (GEA). The 49 beds are up for grabs daily from mid-June to mid-September but only on weekends in winter and over Christmas holidays.
