Just a few kilometres from Parma, you can immerse yourself in the extensive woods, meadows and small ponds of the Boschi di Carrega Regional Park, crossed by the cycle route of the same name, which allows you to admire architectural emergencies such as the Villa Casino dei Boschi, one of the most beautiful regional residences, built in the 18th century by the French architect Ennemond Alexandre Petitot on the commission of Maria Amalia, daughter of Maria Theresa of Austria, but above all natural wonders, among oak, chestnut and conifer woods, populated by roe deer, woodpeckers and many woodland animals.
There are several itineraries on two wheels, such as the one through the centuries-old 'Faggeta di Maria Amalia' and the 'Giardino Monumentale'.
The Boschi di Carrega Ciclovia runs through a typical forest landscape and is accessible in all seasons, even in the hottest summer given the prevalence of cool, shady stretches. To find out all the details of the itinerary, download the route map and GPX or KMZ tracks, or download the App for mobile devices, you can connect to the dedicated page on the Emilia-Romagna Region website.
The route is part of the "Ciclovie dei Parchi" project.
