San Michele in Bosco - Forte Bandiera

San Michele in Bosco - Forte Bandiera

This is the first route of bolognese hills. The route is approximately 4 km long with a vertical drop of 250 m. The route connects the park of San Michele in Bosco with the Fort Bandiera, dating back to the valleys of the river Aposa and cutting the slopes of Monte San Vittore and the hill of Barbiano.

Monte Piella

Monte Piella

One of the most significant scenic points of the Upper Reno is the lookout in Mount Piella, located 1196 metres a.s.l. and, from here, you can enjoy a breathtaking view on the Reno Valley. In the autumn months, when Porretta and the Reno Valley are immersed in the fog, the Mount distinguishes itself by emerging from the layer of clouds and remaining exposed to the sun, giving you unique emotions. The road to reach it is characterized by majestic trees, pine forests and beech forests crossed by numerous easily accessible paths. It is the ideal destination to venture and go mushrooming and for paragliding or hang-gliding. From Porretta you can move on foot, the CAI 107 and 107A paths start from here.

Santuario di San Luca

Santuario di San Luca

One of the symbols of Bologna: it’s a traditional place of worship because of the Virgin of St. Luke painting behind the altar;  it is also the reassuring visual landmark for Bolognesi returning home.

Parco dei Gessi

Parco dei Gessi

Created in 1988, it embraces an area boasting spectacular gypsum outcrops and countless karst features like the characteristic “calanchi” (badlands) of Passo dell’Abbadessa.

Ponte Alidosi

Ponte Alidosi

With its 42-metre long single arch, it is a splendid example of a Renaissance age humpbacked bridge.
