Owner description: The National Park of the Casentino Forests, Monte Falterona and Campigna covers an area of about 36,000 hectares (about 15,000 acres), equally divided between Emilia Romagna and Tuscany, including territory from the provinces of Forlì-Cesena, Arezzo and Florence. From a naturalist viewpoint, the Park stands out as one of the most prized forest areas in Europe. At the heart of the park are the Foreste Demaniali Casentinesi [State Casentino forests], within which can be found the Riserva Naturale Integrale (Integral Nature Reserve) of Sasso Fratino, founded in 1959. The territory also has towns and villages rich in history and artistic and architectural heritage, which present themselves to the visitor in a wonderful natural frame, rich in flora and fauna, including the most important population of the Apennine wolf, as well as the exceptional presence of five species of ungulates (mammals with hooves): wild boar, roe deer, fallow deer, common deer, and mouflon (mountain sheep).Inside the park there are two points of great interest and spiritual importance: the Sanctuary of La Verna and the Hermitage of Camaldoli. The protected area can be visited by pleasant excursions on foot, mountain bike, horseback or, in winter, on cross-country skis along a path network of approximately 600 kilometres.

Once you get bored by the sea, take a day-trip to this park. You will enjoy some adventure riding the serpentines and steep roads and then you can spend time by walking in the wonderful nature. We met very very few people during the day! Climb the Monte Falco mountain, drink from the springs, learn about trees on the trail good for children, visit the small museum of the park, eat in the ristorante on the edge of the forest, enjoy the breathtaking views! And next day, continue to Firenze ;)

Stayed for a couple of days here, went for hiking tours and just relaxing in this great peaceful nature area. Would always come again!

The park is well organised with several info points with a competent and gentle staff. There are paths for every level of experience in trekking. The woods are amazing, unspoiled. Being used to walk in the Alps, though, I was slighty sad that we couldn't appreciate the panorama because of the few open spots among trees. In any case, the park is worth the visit!

This is a stunning park in the Apennines - with breathtaking forests, a fine network of way-marked paths, and many good places to stay - and to eat the abundant and excellent local produce. Considering how close it is to many Italian towns, it's remarkably tranquil and unspoilt.

Endless trees with no end towards the sky, amazing scenory and breath-taking waterfalls.
The drive is slow but enjoy all that is around you, including small towns here and there.
