Free hikes in the Reserve and visits to the Nature Museum in 2019
The outdoor activities to enjoy the Reserve – such as nature walks, visits to the archaeological area of the Roman tunnels along the via Flaminia, guided walks throughout the network of trails, observation of the golden eagles’ eyrie..- will restart in June by the programme of free events taking place as in the past years until November.
Waiting for the guided visits, the Nature Reserve can also be enjoyed in January, February and March. In the winter months hiking enthusiasts can take advantage of the not rare good weather conditions to explore the protected area as well as to visit the Lorenzo Mannozzi Torini nature museum in the village of Furlo, open from the beginning of March. Hiking to scenic spots on Monte Pietralata and Monte Paganuccio is easy thanks to maps and information which can be downloaded from the website www.riservagoladefurlo.it . Information and maps are also provided by the Reserve’s visitor centre, open from the beginning of March. There is free entrance to the visitor centre and to the attached nature museum in the village of Furlo di Acqualagna, via Flaminia n.36. Phone: 0721-700041. E-mail: email@example.com
Visits to Lorenzo Mannozzi Torini nature museum. The renewed museum hosts a large collection of stuffed animals, rocks and fossils. Interactive software transports visitors back millions of years on a journey to discover Gola del Furlo’s geological and anthropological history. An observation system has been established to allow visitors admire the eyrie of the golden eagles, built on the crags of Monte Paganuccio.
