"...this is me in the mid..." Italy Things to Do Tip by lovecell

Italy Things to Do: 1,468 reviews and 2,255 photos


...this is me in the mid 80',modestly I think it's one of my best photos, so I couldn't resist, sorry:-)) ....come and play with me in this little forest....ehh! I'm not the bad wolf!!!!
This wood (100 hectares) is the heart of the Natural Reserve, and it is the last exemple of the kind of forest which, until the XVIII century, covered all this region. The main tree is the Turkey oak, but there are also other interesting species, some of them very rare in Italy.
The fauna is still interesting, although reduced in comparison to the past: it includes typical species of this region, like the roe buck (reintroduced in 1957). Among the mammals there are martens, badgers and weasels; among the birds, woodpeckers, owls and nightingales. During the winter it is possible to observe numerous groups of robins, goldcrests and other typical exemplars.
