Tip of the Month

Each month we highlight a place of interest around the globe that we consider as unique as Borgo di Vagli. The tips are selected as they either show respect for the environment, nature, and architectural beauty or are deeply indigenous to their individual origin.

This month we highlight the Parco delle Foreste Casentinesi

The Parco Nazionale delle Foreste Casentinesi, Monte Falterona, Campigna is a national park in Italy. Created in 1993, it covers an area of about 368 square kilometres (142 sq. miles) On the two sides of the Apennine watershed between Emilia Romagna and Tuscany, and is divided between the provinces of Forlì, Cesena, Arezzo and Florence.

It extends around the long ridge, descending steeply along the parallel valleys of the Romagna side and more gradually on the Tuscan side, which has gentler slopes, especially in the Casentino area, which slopes down gradually to the broad valley of the Arno. Flora in the park includes over 1000 herbaceous species, of which 48 are trees and shrubs. The most valuable collection is to be found on the Mount Falco-Falterona massif. Many animals can be spotted such as apennine wolves, barn owls, wild boar, common buzzards, eagles, eurasian badgers, fallow deer, martens, red deer, red foxes, roe deer and tawny owls.
