Monte Carmo is a mountain in the Ligurian Apennine, northern Italy.

Geography[edit]

The mountain is located at the boundary between the three regions of Liguria, Piedmont and Emilia-Romagna. With an altitude of 1,640 metres (5,381 ft),[1] it is part of the Monte Antola Group. Nearby are the Val Borbera, Val Trebbia, Val Boreca and Valle Terenzone valleys. Its summit is a tripoint at which the borders of the regions of Piedmont, Emilia-Romagna and Liguria meet.

Hiking[edit]

Monte Carmo was crossed by the so-called "Lombard Salt Road", which from Pavia led to Torriglia and then to Genoa.
