The area of the Valleys in the province of Bologna between Idice, Savena and Setta, a land of wayfarers crossed by the ancient pilgrimage road to Tuscany, is still today the trade and cultural route that links northern and peninsular Italy. The nature of these valleys is still wild and uncontaminated. The landscape is typical of the mid Apennines with a maximum altitude of 1200 m. An ideal environment for gentle walks, bicycle rides or horse rides at the discovery of these valleys that offer the opportunity to experience the emotion of walking in the footsteps of armies, pilgrims and writers.


This well marked and equipped trail is divided in seven stages and can be done on foot, by mountain bike or on horseback. It is an environmental tourism offer that gives the opportunity to experience direct contact with nature and discover the cultural and gastronomic aspects of Emilia Romagna and Tuscany.
