Trekking of the Fireflies in the Fairy Woods

From June 25th, Santuario della Verna (AR)

This event offers you an unforgettable exclusive experience in the magic of the Casentino Secular Forests. Thousands of fireflies that suddenly illuminate the forest offering a surreal spectacle and giving emotions that take your breath away and awaken the amazement in the child within us.
A series of evenings dedicated to the observation of this wonderful natural phenomenon.

Fridays will be dedicated exclusively to adults, while on Saturdays an aperitif and a visit to the Secret Rooms with the Friars of La Verna are combined with the pike-in-the-clock to conclude with the Sunday fire flies for children.
Due to pollution, these extraordinary insects are drastically decreasing and to see them it is necessary to move further and further away from urban centers, but in this case the forest is the background of this magic.
For this we will be immersed in some of the most fascinating forest stretches of the Park between centuries-old beeches and firs that touch the sky to live this wonderful experience.
