    By the side of the chapel of Madonna di Pione an unsophisticated rest area with wooden table and benches is ready to any passer buys. There is a fountain but unfortunately, it does not deliver water anymore.

    In front of La Locanda dei 2 stands an oratory or small chapel for Madonna di Pione. It was built in the 18th century. Unfortunately, it was closed and I could not have a look at the inside.

    In May, there is a feast at the chapel for blessing children. At the end of June, there is another celebration in the chapel ("celebration and gastronomy"), as well as for the 15th of August. It can be a stage for pilgrins that walk the Via Francigena.

    Luca is the cook and we tasted excellent local dishes.

    The restaurant is open to everybody and not only for visitors of the hotel.

    It is obviously the easiest way to reach Madonna di Pione.

    Leave Autostrada A1 at Fiorenzuola, follow the road to Castell'Arquato, then for Vernasca and then again in the direction of Bore. Before reaching Bore and 7 km after Vernasca, in the middle of the forest you will find La Locanda dei 2 on the right.

    Though La Locanda dei 2 stands in a remote place, in the middle of the forest, it is nevertheless easy to reach by bus. There is a bus stop in front of the hotel, which, after all is not a wonder as it had been before a stage post ! Busses run from Parma, Fidanza, Vernasca to Bore. In winter, it leaves Parma at 12:45 and 16:45 and arrives at Madonna di Pione at 14:22 and 18:12. In summer, it leaves Parma at 7:00 and 17:20 and arrives at Madonna di Pione at 8:27 and 18:47
