Some of our itineraries retrace the Gothic Line and places of memory, or go to explore Etruscan archaeological sites.

Others allow you to enjoy the unspoiled beauty of the Regional Park of the Suviana and Brasimone Lakes </ a>, which extends around two large basins created from the early twentieth century for hydroelectric purposes. Mixed forests of oak, beech and conifers form the spectacular front of the Cinghi delle Mogne and are inhabited by protected species such as deer, roe deer, wild boar and fallow deer.

Alternatively, you can visit the Caves of Labante , dug into the travertine by infiltrations or retrace beautiful stretches of the ancient Silk and Wool Road , which through villages, peaks and valleys connects two historic centers of great value: Bologna and Prato.
