Starting from March 4th, Trekking col treno 2017 is proposing 59 excursions scheduled throughout the year, till December 8th. Open to everybody, these excursions are characterized by the opportunity to reach the trailhead by public transport. The long-running initiative promoted by Città metropolitana di Bologna and CAI (Italian Alpine Club) is an invitation to discover the Bologna surroundings through routes with different difficulty level, led by expert CAI guides. Destinations of the excursions are the landscape treasures of the Tosco-Bolognese Appennine and beyond: ancient villages, mountain routes, places of remembrance, old railways, natural parks and points of geological or archaeological interest. This year three excursions are cycle-trekkings, dedicated to bike lovers. For 25 excursions an English-speaking guide is available.
