Sestola in summer is a haven for those seeking a cool location where you can sleep well and escape from sweltering city life.
Seen from this perspective, it also makes a destination for over 65 holidays, as it provides a fresh and quiet location ideal for resting.
But that is not all: Sestola and Monte Cimone mount are also appreciated by active holidaymakers, as they propose a wide range of outdoor summer activities :
In addition to the pleasant walk leading to Castello di Sestola castle, the destination of the best excursions is inevitably Monte Cimone mount.
For example, you can follow the scenic route to Passo del Lupo pass, stopping at Pian del Falco, which is also linked to Sestola via ski lift.
We also recommend you go to the Lago della Ninfa lake, a remarkable picnic spot in green settings. Otherwise, you can continue and reach Pian Cavallaro (1800 metres asl), or even climb Monte Cimone mount and take in one of the most stunning panoramas in the Apennines: from Mount Blanc to the Apuane Alps, including the Po Valley and the blue western Adriatic Sea, and - on a really clear day - the outline of the isle of Elba and Corsica.
Dedicated events and happenings will make your summer holiday in Sestola even more enjoyable. The long list includes the car and motorbike shows here at Hotel San Marco, and the several “Appennino inCanto” appointments, which attract opera lovers, and several other visitors, to Emilia's and Tuscany's mountains every year!
And, when summer comes to a close, beauty does not: Sestola's woods become popular with mushroom and truffle pickers as soon as autumn gently takes over.
