SHOULD I KNOW (soul refuge)

  • contacts: –
    useful info: Soul Refuge – Il rifugio dell’Anima- is located at 600mt high from sea level,
    can be very hot in summer during day time and cold at night.
    Better to bring warm clothes for night, and very light cotton clothes for day time.
    Trekking shoes and light shoes are better, cap, sun glasses, torch, but don’t bring too much staff, place are small and we want to keep just the essential ok?!
    pls. don’t bring too much plastic!
    Closest village for shops, bank, post office, pharmacy at 8 km from the refuge, (in summer open even in Sunday morning)
  • materials: for art workshop you must bring your own staff, as request specifically for each group.
    Also musical instruments are very welcome.
    Bring always your sleeping bag, towels and eventually pillow
  • how to get to the refuge:
    from north or south Italy A14-exit CESENA NORTH- after exit direction E45 -ROME- then exit at QUARTO (follow indication for diga di Quarto-Para-Alfero)
    When you arrive at Para, a small river on your right side, you will find a small group of stone’ houses (wright on the wall BAR), there you start to go up for a small white road, 3 km, in the middle of wood. No more houses or people. You will find on top of the hill a flat place where you can put your car and come for 50 mt walking to my house. Better to have a 4×4 car but all cars are good, not good low car, because of stones or hole on the road.
    Better to have TIM telephone connection, others don’t works well.
    ALSO: from Cesena you have a bus n. 138 every hour who come to Quarto every day
    from Rome SULGA BUS, one every day to Bagno di Romagna-Ravenna
    Coming from Florence you can cross Passo dei Mandrioli, very nice landscape, or go with highway till Sansepolcro and then exit direction E45 direction Ravenna, exit Quarto
