The agriturismo

Activities and surrounding

The Via degli Dei, today, has become one of the main tourist attractions of the Apennines: many lovers of trekking and mountain biking retrace this piece of history while fully enjoying the unspoiled beauty of these places. The stages from Bologna to Florence are 4 or more on foot (depending on the skill of the walker), or 2 or more by bike, the route is not very difficult. The route is divided into sections and not stages to give freedom to all walkers to build their own path. The Gothic Line (Gotenstellung in German) was the defensive line established by German field marshal Albert Kesselring in 1944 in an attempt to slow down the advance of the Allied army commanded by General Harold Alexander towards northern Italy. The defensive line extended from the province of Apuania (the current Massa and Carrara) to the Adriatic coast of Pesaro, following a front of over 300 km on the reliefs of the Apuan Alps continuing eastwards along the hills of Garfagnana, the mountains of the Modena Apennines, the Bolognese Apennines, the high valley of the Arno, that of the Tiber and the Apennines of Forlì, to finish then on the Adriatic side in the defensive preparations between Rimini and Pesaro. Hiking network Excursion to the Fortress of Badolo - Ornella De Curtis Archive Province of Bologna he territory of the reserve is crossed by a minor road network which, in addition to the narrow and suggestive asphalted roads that connect the few places near the Contrafforte, sometimes with magnificent views of the steep walls, includes dirt roads and paths often ancient and traditionally used to reach the historical places and the peaks of the mountains or to walk along the panoramic ridge. The hiking network of the protected area has been the subject of a detailed work of reorganization and adaptation, carried out in collaboration with the Bolognese section of the Italian Alpine Club, which has led to the definition of a network of paths, which are also the only ones that can be covered, marked in classical ways: signs, on trunks and rock; arrow signs, on an independent support, indicating the number of the path, the nearest place (above) and the final destination (below) as well as any long-distance route, at the tip. The reorganization of the hiking network has led to the closure of a series of tracks and traces not very rational and in some cases very dangerous, the laying of information panels at the so-called entry points, the laying of fences, signs and other measures to prevent the passage in particularly problematic or sensitive points from the environmental point of view, various interventions of maintenance of the tracks. The area of the Contrafforte is crossed by three hiking trails of several days. The "Traversata delle cinque valli" (T5V) is an itinerary that develops from Monteveglio to Ozzano Emilia and crosses the entire reserve from west to east; the "Via degli Dei" (VD) is a long itinerary that connects Bologna to Florence, skirting the reserve as far as Monte del Frate and crossing it at Monte Adone and Brento; the Via dei Santuari (VS) is an itinerary that connects Bologna to Prato, touching some of the most evocative sacred buildings in the Apennines and crossing the reserve between Commenda and Battedizzo. Among the many opportunities available are proposed some possible routes of a few hours Monte Mario and Mugnano Meadows Departure Sasso Marconi (103 m) Highest point Monte Mario (466 m) Length 9 km Duration 3.30 hours. The slopes of Monte Mario (466 m) are crossed by chub and paths that allow you to make more excursions of different lengths and difficulties, always with development ring and return through the meadows of Mugnano. The main ring, after having crossed the park of an ancient noble villa, climbs to the top of the mountain following the panoramic ridge that overlooks the overhanging western wall of the relief. Two easier variants, within everyone's reach, develop mainly within the thick forest that covers the northern slopes of the mountain. Another alternative, a little longer, descends from the ridge to the village of Battedizzo and then climb the western wall of the mountain, with some more exposed and challenging passage, and rejoin the main route at the southern end of the Mugnano Meadows. Along all the routes you will encounter naturalistic and historical emergencies of considerable importance. Some sections can be muddy during rainy periods and special care must always be taken along the sections of the ridge. Monte del Frate and Valle del Raibano Departure Badolo (378 m) Highest point Monte del Frate (547 m) Length 7.8 km Duration 3 hours The wide ring of the itinerary develops, through a pleasant succession of environments and landscapes, between the panoramic ridge of Monte del Frate (547 m) and the small valleys that deepen behind the Rocca di Badolo (476 m), touching some of the places of greatest naturalistic value of the reserve. The route uses well-marked paths and dirt roads, has a few steep stretches that can be slippery in rainy periods and requires some attention only along the ridge, when the path approaches the edge of the vertical wall of Monte del Frate. Ring of Monte Adone Departure Brento (463 m) Highest point Monte Adone (654 m) Length 5 km Duration 2.30 hours The itinerary, which offers a wide range of views and interesting naturalistic and historical aspects, is the most direct way to reach the highest peak of the Pliocene Counterfort (the climb is just over a kilometre and a half long); it has a fair difference in height (just under 200 m) but it develops along a route that is not long and fairly easy, on clearly recognisable paths and dirt roads. From the summit you can then close the route by descending along the ridge and cutting through the northern slope of the mountain. Near the summit and during the descent to the ridge, however, you must be careful in the most challenging and exposed sections. Around Monte Rosso Departure Livergnano (525 m) Highest point is substantially the starting point, because in the first part of the itinerary develops downhill to the junction between paths 809 and 809A below I Sassi (325 m), and then go back to Livergnano Length 7.5 km Duration 3 hours The simple circular itinerary goes around the slopes of Monte Rosso (591 m), offering beautiful close-up views of the imposing sandstone walls that overlook Sadurano and interesting views of the fresh woods that cover the northern side of the hill. The route develops mainly on dirt roads with little shade and it is preferable not to follow it during the hours of the day with greater sunshine; a little attention is necessary only in a narrower stretch of path within the woods on the eastern side of the mountain. our farm can offer many services to make your holiday even more enjoyable qualified people collaborate with our farm but you must, if you want to use our services, book them in advance of your arrival date the estimates of these services will be tailored to your needs Our services at the Agriturismo are: YOGA We take yoga courses or sessions at our facility Daniela has been working for years with local centers, our proposal is to be on the large lawn of the structure for a morning meeting with her NORD WALKING COURSES CRYSTAL THERAPY COURSES
