Where we are
Casa Montebrollo is located in Guzzano, a picturesque village of Pianoro in the province of Bologna. Nearby lies the SS65 Futa road, which connected Bologna to Florence and more generally the south to the north of Italy, a historic road with great tourist attractions.
Bologna is an important geographical crossroad for various reasons, its railway station, the airport and the motorway junction. Every year, the trade fair of the Emilian capital attracts thousands of visitors who discover the historical and cultural beauties of this medieval city. On the territory south of the city that turns towards the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, recently Unesco heritage, you can see remarkable landscape perspectives, with badlands areas and sandstone ridges of striking beauty (the Pliocene natural Reserve). Along the river Zena, which next to the Savena river are the main river beds, is the Parco dei Gessi Bolognesi and Calanchi dell’Abbadessa, another important natural attraction.
The morphology of this region offers an alternation of rolling hills and valleys, where the villages intertwine each with its history, its dialects and its gastronomic recipes that can be appreciated in the numerous trattorias and taverns of the territory. Sports such as cycling, mountain biking and hiking have been practiced for decades, in an increasingly structured way, along the paths and trails of this region. Pianoro is full of offers for athletes, from public and private pools to the golf courses of the Molino del Pero, to the nature trails of the famous Via degli Dei and the ancient Futa road.
Pianoro is connected to Bologna, Florence and other important cities by bus services and railway network. In Sasso Marconi there is the entrance to the A1 motorway Milan-Naples and in San Lazzaro the A14 motorway to Ancona. Bologna’s Guglielmo Marconi airport lies only a thirty minute drive away.
