Itineraries

Vena del Gesso is perpendicularly crossed by three main river valleys (Santerno, Senio, Sintria), and by a fourth valley going along it in the east (Lamone).
The four gypsum bars delimited by the watercourses are interested by as many ring-route itineraries, to follow on foot.
A fifth itinerary connects the whole pedestrian system from one end to the other of Vena del Gesso Romagnola Park.
This system of hiking trails is directly managed by Club Alpino Italiano (CAI), in collaboration with the Park Authority.
