Lodole Country House is also perfectly located for trekking enthusiasts as there are a vast number of nearby trails that wind over the paths and lanes of the Bologna Apennines. Maps and guidebooks by the Italian Alpine Club are also available at the House to help guests choose the ideal walk.

We can particularly recommend a walk along the old Roman road, the Via Flaminia Minor, or along the Via Francigena or the Via degli Dei. All these paths have joined Bologna to Florence for thousands of years and today they are well signposted and described in travel and guide books aimed at people who wish to relive the history and legends that surround these picturesque pilgrim trails through the Tusco-Emilian Apennines.
