Majestic nature
amidst forests, lakes and mountains

Breathe. Look at the sky above you, soaring with your gaze. Listen to the wind in the trees and the silence breeze. Let the soft grass caress you. Breathe in the scent of the trees. In the nature of the Savio Valley, let go of stress and frenzy, now move slowly and follow your passions.

With this route you can explore the wonders created by the environment and found in the Savio Valley such as the National Park of the Casentinesi Forests, the Forests of Careste-Sarsina, Monte Falterona and Fumaiolo, the Ridracoli Dam, the Altopiano di San Paolo in Alpe and the paths of the Rio Cavo.

Whether you love the thrill of outdoor activities or the peace of stopping and admiring and being part of your surroundings, plan a holiday among the vast landscapes and boundless natural beauty.

Live it all the real and genuine emotions with immersive nature experiences: boat trips, hiking or horseback riding through forests, recreational fishing at the lakes, events to discover the most beautiful colours of autumn at the Fall Foliage, trips to listen to the roaring of the deer and the experience of forest bathing.
