The borough of Monzuno is located between the Setta, Savena and Sambro river valleys about 36 km from the historic centre of Bologna. The area is rich in agriculture, agritourism, animal breeding, crafts and commercial activities. It is known for being a historical-tourist destination that attracts lovers of unspoiled nature and sports (climbing, hang gliding, golf and horse riding).
The territory stretches as far as the large historical park of Monte Sole, a place with captivating landscape features that hosts a rich fauna and a third of the varieties of vegetation present in Emilia-Romagna, but which was also the place of some of the cruellest aspects of the War of Liberation and the history of Italy.
It also hosts part of the Pliocene Buttress, a natural reserve established with the aim of conserving natural environments, geological features, flora and fauna and promoting environmental redevelopment, biodiversity protection, scientific research and environmental education.
The 965 metre high summit of Mount Venere is the highest point in Monzuno, from where you can admire a magnificent view and even see the Dalmatian coast and almost the entire Alpine arc as far as Mont Blanc.
Here you can walk along the paths of the Gothic Line, which allows you to retrace the history and events of the men and women who fought in the last German defensive outpost during the Campaign of Italy.
