Nature Trekking and Mountains
Located inside the Regional Park of the Picentini Mountains, the charming medieval village of Quaglietta dominates the valley of the Sele river; he lives in an intricate winding of alleys and stone houses that rise to the top of the Castle.
In Laviano, however, you start from the ruins of an ancient manor and then cross, on tiptoe, the spectacular Tibetan Bridge.
From the romantic historic gardens of the monumental Castello di Valva, to the curious marble spectators of an ancient amphitheater built with boxwood steps, to the mountain caves of San Michele and the Zagarone Canyon between natural pools and breathtaking waterfalls, reachable only on foot. Stroll through woods rich in beech and chestnut trees and relax under the cool waters of natural waterfalls.
A path capable of alternating exciting adventures with moments of relaxation in nature, crowned by the taste of good wine in villages where a romantic moon can dye the high walls of ancient forts silver.
