On the Apennine ridge between Romagna and Tuscany, it extends one of the most important forest heritages in Italy, considered a real paradise for the lovers of mountains and nature: this is the National Park of the Casentino Forests, which offers the opportunity to live a wide range of adventurous and incredible experiences, among centuries-old woods, sanctuaries and waterfalls.
Inside the park there are some of the most beautiful sites of the Apennines: impossible not to mention the Acquacheta Waterfalls, near the village of San Benedetto in Alpe; the forest of Campigna with the majestic Grand Ducal Palace, hunting residence of the Lorena Family; the village of Ridracoli with its artificial dam ; and finally the Integral Reserve of Sasso Fratino, with its centuries-old beech wood, a World Heritage Site.
To all this is added the beauty of the small villages within the park area, such as Bagno di Romagna, Premilcuore, Santa Sofia, Portico di Romagna and San Benedetto in Alpe, treasure chests of historical and cultural traditions that must be known and visited.
