Villa Minozzo - a garden of Eden

Francesco and his carraige

Villa Minozzo is a region in the National Park of the Giant withing the Tuscan Emilia national Park and also designated an area of special interest by UNESCO and also designated as an MAB area (Man and Biosphere).

The significance is that it is a protected area, where wildlife flourishes and traditional culture and ways of living are embraced and encouraged.

There are many wonderful, unspoilt areas we can take you to for a day, or half day trip.  Here are some options.
  • Amazing ridge walk at Passo Praderena
  • La Pietra di Bismantova - a huge rock formation with wonderful views, and lots of interest in many forms.
  • You can also try rock climbing or the Via Ferrata there if you are a bit wild!
  • Waterfall at Golfarone, and rock pools.
  • Walks through the woodlands at Ligonchio following waterfalls.
  • Take the chairlift to Monte Cusna and walk to the summit.  This can also be a lovely romantic evening activity.
  • Walk up to Monte PrampaMore..
