The Casentino is crossed by the tributaries of the river Arno and extends from Monte Falterona to the Mandrioli Pass. This vast and rich area can be visited either on foot, by bike or on horseback along a network of over 650 km of trails. Its forests are called Parco Nazionale delle Foreste Casentinesi, Monte Falterona e Campigna: one of Europe’s purest forested areas. A quiet natural oasis stretching over both Tuscany and Emilia Romagna, the park is home to roe deer, venison, fallow deer, wild boars and even wolves.
The Casentino area is a great natural and historical treasure trove that is perfect to soak up nature and understand the historical relationship between human settlements and landscape: mule tracks, bridges, villages with abbeys and monasteries will enhance your already spectacular experience.
