Nature and History between the Po Plain and the Ligurian Sea

Between Cisa and Forbici Passes, the forest ridges separating Tuscany from Emilia give way to a real mountain environment. The summits of Alpe di Succiso, Mt. Prado, and Mt. Cusna go beyond the 2,000 meters, the forests give way to rocks, lakes, and high-mountain grasslands. At lower altitudes, on the slope of Emilia, the unmistakable silhouette of Pietra di Bismantova dominates the landscape with its vertical walls. Appennino Tosco Emiliano National Park boasts an extraordinary environmental richness, from grasslands to blueberry moorlands to the steepest summits; and again lakes, waterfalls, stretches of water, rocky walls falling sheer above the streams; animals like the wolf, the mouflon, the roe deer, the golden eagle, and botanical rare species transforming whole areas into real natural botanic gardens. The tourist value of this natural area is also given by quality products and services, excellent facilities for sports activities and relax, ideal for your holidays... up to 2,000 meters.
