Nature that children can enjoy

Updated on 05 July 2023 From Bologna Welcome

Rolling in the meadows, growing curious about unknown trees and animals, climbing chalk mountain sides or splashing through waterfalls: children will be captivated by Bologna's nature.

The adventures begin with the many caves located throughout the area, such as the Labante Caves in Castel d’Aiano and the Gessi Caves in Zola Predosa, the Farneto Caves in San Lazzaro di Savena, the Spipola Cave in Gessi Bolognesi and Calanchi dell’Abbadessa Park and the Re Tiberio Cave in Vena del Gesso Romagnola Park in the Imola area.

At the La Rizza Oasis, a protected natural area in the Ex Risaia di Bentivoglio (BO), children can enjoy bird watching many resident and migratory bird species and will also be fascinated by the beautiful white stork that has returned to nest here after centuries. Also, in the dense woodland of more than 19 hectares, at the Boscodella Frattona Oasis just outside Imola, children will be enchanted by the green woodpeckers and great spotted woodpeckers that have found refuge here.

Spring and autumn are the best seasons to visit the oases.
