Located about 12km from Imola, Casalfiumanese is the first town of the Santerno Valley, which goes up into the Apennines along Via Montanara, even reaching Tuscany.
Casalfiumanese is situated on a hill, surrounded by the typical landscape of the Santerno Valley: apricot trees, vineyards and outstanding ancient calanchi, local geological ground formations similar to badlands.
The perfect time of the year to visit Casalfiumanese is spring: enjoy the blossoming trees and the nature waking up after winter time. In fall, the mild temperatures are a natural invitation to outdoor activities, such as hiking and mountain biking.
Villa Manusardi Park is a treasure in the town centre: high trees and spontaneous local vegetation create a lovely atmosphere of peace and calm.
A suggested itinerary for outdoor hiking is the Luca Ghini Trail: a panoramic path dedicated to one of the founders of modern botany.
The territory of Mordano/Imola/Casalfiumanese/Borgo Tossignano/Fontanelice/Castel del Rio is crossed by Santerno Valley Cycling Path: a scenic bike ride for any kind of cycling tourist who wishes to be surrounded by nature. Santerno Valley Cycling Path is a mixed trail of gravel and paved roads, connecting the plain of Imola area to the Appennines, from Mordano to Castel del Rio.
