Free guided walks will take place during the week-end to visit the Gola del Furlo Nature Reserve.

The first event will be “Una notte bestiale”, an easy guided walk along the river’s banks starting on Saturday at 7.30pm to know sounds of animals and birds at sunset. Visitors are required to bring an electric torch. Meet at the Nature Reserve tourist office in the village of Furlo di Acqualagna, via Flaminia n.36, where it will be possible to visit also the renewed Lorenzo Mannozzi-Torini nature museum. The 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 to see the eyrie of the golden eagle, built on the crags of Monte Paganuccio.

The event taking place on Sunday 2 July will be “Tra le meraviglie della Gola”, the guided walk throughout the marvels of nature and history in the Gola del Furlo Nature Reserve. Meet at 3.30pm at the Gola del Furlo Nature Reserve tourist office in the village of Furlo di Acqualagna, via Flaminia n.36. The route of the walk will be flat and accessible to everybody. A guide will explain the sorts of plants and flowers and talk about the wild animals and birds of prey, such as the golden eagle, which can be observed in the protected area. It will be possible to admire also the two tunnels bored by the Romans along the consular via Flaminia.
