1 Day





  • Enjoy hiking across Monte Conero along with an experienced guide.
  • Reach natural viewpoints and contemplate breathtaking panoramas.
  • Discover amazing natural areas and ancient geological formations.


Monte Conero is a mountain in the Adriatic Sea south of the city of Ancona, in Central Italy. On this 1-day program, I would like to invite you to explore this beautiful mountain and discover its incredible views and natural areas. If you love hiking through the wilderness, you can’t miss this chance!

Our traverse will begin in Fonte d’Olio and we’ll follow a route across the mountain that will lead us through different beautiful natural spots. We’ll go to Pian Grande and Piani di Ragetti and contemplate spectacular panoramic views from natural balconies. Also, we’ll visit incredible caves, such as Grotte Romane and Grotta Mortarolo, and observe fantastic geological formations.

On the traverse, we’ll follow the Belvedere Nord route to the summit and share lunch in the middle of the mountain. Then, we’ll continue across Belvedere Sud and reach Passo del Lupo from where we’ll admire the contrast of the blue sea and the white rocks. In addition, we’ll have the chance to visit the Badi di San Pietro on the hike.

Please, keep in mind that this excursion has a medium level of difficulty and that we’ll face an elevation gain of 470 meters. Therefore, it’s important to have a good level of fitness for this trip.

So, are you ready for this adventure in the gorgeous Monte Conero? Then all you have to do is send the request to book your place. It will be a pleasure for me to be your guide on this traverse.

About the guide

I am a Hiking Guide and a National/International Tour Leader authorized by the Marche Region in Italy.

After travelling and living in Australia for eight years, I returned to live in Ancona, where I was born and raised. I consider this land a very “special” place and it is my passion to show my land to visitors.

I love working outdoors in contact with nature, art and people. I love my work and consider myself a cheerful and dynamic person who easily adapts to new situations and my client's needs and expectations.

Passionate about history, nature, culture (food & wine), I spend my free time studying wild plants and their usage, ancient legends and history as well as visiting new places to create new possible tours to offer.

I work very often with English speakers. My Mission is to deliver a “genuine experience” that will connect you to the land & culture of this magnificent place.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
