The sunny hills and green valleys that are so typical of the Appenine mountains have been adorned with numerous look-out points that are ideal resting spots for those who enjoy trekking, riding mountain bikes or taking an excursion through nature on horseback. Near to “Badia della Valle” are historical places of interest such as; The Gamogna Hermitage and the Village “Borgo” Abbey.  Other natural places of wonder include the  Trebbana Oak   and the Acquacheta Waterfall. For those who are looking for the right mix between vivacious city life and the serenity of  the hillside, Abbey of the Valley offers just the right equilibrium.  The city of Faenza, that is culturally famous for its fine ceramics, is only 36 km away and Ravenna, city of ancient mosaics, is 66 km away. Florence (72km away) can easily be reached by car, or if one prefers, by taking a panoramic train ride through the Appenine hills, parting from the scenic town of Marradi and arriving in the central station of Florence. Bologna is 80km distance, Mugello Autodrome 50km, Imola 46km.

Gamogna Hermitage 

 San Pier Damiano in his travel through this valley founded the even more isolate Gamogna Hermitage, which has more recently been completely restored.  The Gamogna Hermitage is the most remote and isolated Abbey in this area and it is reached, within 45 minutes, by following a foot path which takes you though breathtaking views of mountains, hills  and valleys.

Acerreta torrent

The fountains and springs were the household taps for the mountain people who went there every day to fill their pitchers and copper kettles. Today they provide refreshment for travellers and pilgrims who with renewed respect bow down to quench their thirst and enjoy the freshness.
