Take in the unique atmosphere of the former ancient “Silva Mantiana” forest

As we enter this place sacred to Etruscans, probably due to the gloomy and impenetrable appearance of the forest and the widespread presence of sulfurous water springs in an area, we’ll make our way to a special, sulfurous spring area – used by Romans for sacred rituals – and defined by the European Commission Habitats Directive as a “Site of Community Importance”.

Feared by the Etruscans,
loved by the Romans

This hike is a great experience for those that like to take some time off from the frenetic daily routines in their life.

We’ll experience a natural environment that is protected and classified by the European Union as being of “special interest to the community”.

It’s a unique opportunity to make two experiences at once:
the majestic forest, and the energetic volcanic sulfur spring.
