Numbered as one of the most beautiful towns in Italy (“I Borghi più Belli d'Italia) and awarded with the Orange Flag of the Italian Touring Club, Brisighella is a fascinating medieval citadel, overlooking the hilly area included between the cities of Florence and Ravenna. It is reachable on foot by the marked path CAI 505 Faenza – Brisighella, retracing the ancient shortcut which tied the Via Emilia to Florence through the pass of Colla di Casaglia.
Known worldwide for its historical ceramic production, especially for the maiolica tradition, Faenza is a splendid city of art. Mostly, its architectures recall the Renaissance and the Neoclassicism, but also, you can find older traces dating back to the period before the year 1000 D.C.
The territory of Casola Valsenio is part of the alpine and hilly area of the Ravenna province. It is well-known for the cultivation of medicinal plants, particularly the lavender. Here in fact you can find the Herbs Garden ( Il Giardino delle Erbe), the Walk of Lavender (La strada della Lavanda) and also a summer evening market dedicated to medicinal and aromatic herbs.
Riolo Terme is located in the Ravenna inland, at the foot of the hills of the Senio Valley (Valle del Senio). It is a well known “city of waters”, rich in environmental and enogastronomic attractions, and particularly famous for its precious thermal waters, which already the Romans used for therapeutic purposes. The imposing walls of the fortress (the Rocca) protect the ancient hamlet dating back to 1300 D.C., while a few steps from the historical center stands the Liberty style spa.
