OPEN AIR: PATHS AND PARKS
The green hills of Bologna dominated by the cultivation of vines and interspersed with impervious gullies, offer the visitor unique landscape views. The whole hilly stretch is crossed by a dense maze of paths and paths which in this period are an inevitable destination for those who want to experience moments of serenity in the open air.
You will be able to walk along the Bologna stretch of the Via degli Dei, the path that unites Bologna and Florence and which crosses the territory of Casalecchio di Reno in the panoramic point of the Sentiero dei Bregoli and in the Parco della Chiusa, and then continue along the River Reno in the direction of Sasso Marconi , with the possibility of admiring the Pliocene Buttress and the Oasis of San Gherardo.
InValsamoggia and Monte San Pietroinstead you can take the ancient path of the Piccola Cassia which connects Nonantola to Pistoia, and which in the early Middle Ages became a Longobard road and therefore one of the many itineraries which led to Rome joining up with the Via Francigena. The Piccola Cassia is a path rich in historical and religious testimonies (Nonantola Abbey, Rocca di Bazzano, Monteveglio Abbey, Serravalle Castle and S. Apollinare, Badia, Santa Lucia and Pieve di Roffeno, Bombiana, Rocca Corneta, Fanano and many other historic centers and villages), and I will give you the opportunity to discover varied landscapes and authentic flavours.
On the vast territory ofMount St. Peterinstead, it is possible to follow the paths mapped out as part of the “Cuore Colli Bolognesi” tourist project, including eight circular paths that will give you the opportunity to discover a unique landscape full of suggestions.
If you love wine and its culture, you can also walk the ancient Via dei Brentatori and the Via dei Colli, following in the footsteps of the ancient Brentatori who with their "brente" brought wine from the hills to the city. Extremely interesting and suitable routes for lovers of trail, Nordic walking, cycling, but also of the food and wine excellences of the area. In fact, while walking it will be possible to stop among the various wineries of the Colli Bolognesi, the production area of the Colli Bolognesi Pignoletto DOCG, which in recent years has been able to make itself known and appreciated more and more not only locally but also nationally and internationally.
It is also possible to take relaxing walks in the local parks, above all the Regional Park at the foot of the Monteveglio Abbey and, along the Reno, the Casalecchio Chiusa Park, a point from which it is possible to admire the Chiusa, the most ancient in Europe still in operation.
