The visit in San Gabriele could be an occasion, if the weather is nice, to take a walk along the riverside of the Reno river. At Passo Segni, 3 km further the place where Savena canal flows into Reno, one can pass the "Bailey bridge", made of iron with abutments in stone and cement. The bridge dates back after the Second World War and was designed by Province of Bologna to be inaugurated in 1950. The recent renovation has kept the original wooden planking level.
