Monte Taccone is a mountain located between Liguria and Piedmont in north-western Italy. It is part of the Ligurian Appennines.

Access to the summit[edit]

The mountain is accessible by signposed foothpaths departing from Bocchetta Pass or Isoverde (municipality of Campomorone).

The Alta Via dei Monti Liguri, a long-distance trail from Ventimiglia (province of Imperia) to Bolano (province of La Spezia), passes very close to the mountain's summit.[2]

Nature conservation[edit]

The northern slopes of Monte Taccone are included in the Capanne di Marcarolo natural park.[3]
