If you are looking for some adventures, beautiful sceneries and the best nature can offer, we have no doubt… your perfect destination in Le Marche is the Natural Park Gola della Rossa and Frasassi! Known as ‘the green heart of Le Marche’, this Natural Park is the biggest protected natural area in the region and a true heaven for those who love wildlife, trekking and breathtaking views.
The park expands over 10 thousands hectares and offers a great variety of paths such as the ones in Valle Scappuccia both for trekking and for other activities like birdwatching: this natural area is famous for being rich in flora and fauna and it is the home of 105 different bird species!
If you are interested not just in wildlife but also in physical activity, then this park will not disappoint either. Frasassi Avventura is a wide area along the river Sentino where both adults and children can climb and have some real fun on the adventure park’s five trails. Or, if you are looking for a truly exciting challenge, do not miss the chance to try the slackline during the Fasassi Climbing Festival which takes place every September! Will you be brave enough to face the height and try to walk on a rope from one side of the mountain to the other?
The real gem of the National Park are then the Frasassi Caves, a complex cave system where visitors can discover a fascinating underground world made of stalactites and stalagmites, as well as caves so big that they could comfortably accommodate Milan Cathedral! Do not miss the chance to see them and make a trip to Genga, famous for its castle and the Roman abbey San Vittore delle Chiuse, as well as to Tempio del Valadier, a small church built inside a cave on one side of the mountains.
