The Fairy-Tale Park, the first park in Emotional Italy

The Fairy-Tale Park is the first “emotive” park in Italy. There it is possible to enjoy a magical experience beyond the confines of time while immersed in a natural setting of millenary rocks and centuries old trees. Who lived in the wood? Fairies, sprites, elves and Druids .. and then the Tree-Man and perhaps the Animal-Man. And surely witches and wizards passed by, in their constant search for herbs to concoct their potions. Accompanied by a guide along the route, the boys and girls will encounter characters from the imaginary world of fairy-tales, whose origins date from remote times that have been lost. The boys and girls will also enjoy a fantastic and exciting adventure in the company of characters from the wood. Although the level of difficulty of the route is low, it is advisable to wear mountaineering boots and comfortable clothes suitable for an excursion. A waterproof jacket should be worn in the event of rain.
