The “Notturni nelle Rocche”, are now in their 10th year, these night-time nature walks are enlivened with theatrical moments and insights into the local botany and wildlife.
They happen every Tuesday and Friday in June, July and September, and are an excellent opportunity to expose a wider public to the network of paths and the natural heritage of the Roero area. This proposal brings together several strengths, it is an opportunity to socialise and relax, it encourages tourists to use the paths, it offers a calm and enjoyable way to keep fit in the open air, it is a showcase for territorial themes and raises public awareness of sustainable tourism.
There are twenty walks in all, through 18 of the municipalities of the Roero area, offering a wide range of itineraries and scenic views. These walks are suitable for everyone. And what better way to appreciate nature than on a summer night? Half way through the walk the young members of a local theatre company animate the evening with live music or an expert in botany or wildlife explains a particular feature.
At the end, a good night snack is included with a tisane and local produce.
Some routes are also possible by MTB with a guide; you must have lights and a helmet.
