The town of ceramics is bordered by the first line of hills and reaching the nearby Brisighella may seem too easy. But it is worth reaching the top of the first ridges interrupting the plain to observe the conformation of gypsums and gullies of the Vena del Gesso Park. Without forgetting the two small towns with ancient origins, representing renowned historical testimonies and worthy of deeper investigation.

Not to be missed:
the emotional experience of pedalling along a gully, rewarded by tastings at the Outdoor Olive oil Museum in Brisighella.
