Trekking By Train 2019

On March 3th inaugurates the 2019 edition of Trekking col treno: 59 excursions scheduled throughout the year and open to everyone. The starting point can be reached by public transport.

The long-running initiative promoted by Destinazione turistica Bologna and CAI (Italian Alpine Club) is an invitation to discover the Bologna surroundings through 59 itineraries with different levels of difficulty, accompanied by CAI guides. Treks focus mainly on the landscape gems of the Tosco-Bolognese Appennine but will also include ancient villages, places of remembrance, natural parks and points of geological interest.
