Motorhomes and caravans can freely stop in the parking areas of the Park in
Pieve di Trebbio, Casona, Samone, and Casellina (Roccamalatina).
In the above-mentioned parking areas no electricity, water, and drainage are available.
Finding a quiet area where to relax and fully appreciate the Park atmosphere has always been a problem for the visitors of Sassi di Roccamalatina Park.
The protected area mainly consists of private properties and, also for
a better safeguard, it is necessary to create adequate areas such as
picnic area, equipped with tables, benches, and in some cases a
barbecue for a good mixed grill.
The last new-born area is "Antica Pieve", adjacent to the parking area of Pieve di Trebbio, between the Park Center and the ancient Romanesque church. The lower ground where the area has been created gives the opportunity to use a space surrounded by the green, at a few meters from the parking area (it will be the favorite one for the laziest tourists), with a beautiful view over the high pinnacles of "Sassi".
The other equipped areas are situated near Mulino della Riva, near the riverbed in Casona di Marano along the Panaro, in Samone and near Rocca di Sopra - an ancient village of the "Sassi" in Roccamalatina.
Thanks to the Guided Visits service organized by the Park, it is
possible to know more about its natural, historical-cultural, and
managerial aspects: as a matter of fact, there will be the possibility
to admire the main features of the territory, such as the rupestral and
fluvial environment, the gullies, the streams, the mixed and wet woods,
and the suggestive views from the cliffs of the "Sassi".
They can last one day or half a day, and have different levels of difficulty.
If required by the teacher, thematic guided tours can be organized for schools along the trails of the protected area.
If required by the teacher, more than one-day school tourism programs can be organized in the Park or in the adjacent territories, always respecting the principles of sustainable tourism.
Moreover, the Park suggests several environmental education activities consisting of classroom meetings, lab activities, and exits in the field to be carried out during the school year.
Some proposals aim at drawing the students nearer to the Natural Sciences issues (with reference to the Park) or at the traditions linked to the rural civilization, using the Protected Area as an educational classroom.
It is possible to require the detailed program by calling the number +39 059 795721.
Personalized projects can be carried out with the educational support of the advice service offered by the "Sportello Verde".
