Campora is only a short distance from Parma, a city known throughout the world for art and music. The hometown of Giuseppe Verdi and Arturo Toscanini, it is also famous for the paintings of Correggio and its cathedral and unique Baptistery. For art lovers, the Fondazioni Magnani Rocca lies halfway between Campora and Parma.
Campora belongs to the comune of Neviano degli Arduini, whose tourism ideas website is well worth a look. Similar content can also be found in the convenient Neviano app (in Italian), which is downloadable for most devices. Hiking and mountain biking routes may be found here (in Italian, with available English translation).
Also useful for biking (or mountain bike): Monte Fuso (bikemap.net).
In summer you can take advantages of many of the amenities of the area, such as the community swimming pool, a short walk from the B&B, or hiking in the Monte Fuso area or in the surrounding mountains:
- Parco Nazionale Appennino Tosco-Emiliano
- Parco dei Cento Laghi (Hundred Lakes Park)
- Rifugio Lago Santo
- Rifugio Lagoni
Equestrian: Grande Ippovia Appennino Emilia-Romagna
Last but not least, Emilia-Romagna is well known for its culinary tradition, the food valley of Italy. Foodies would do well to consider the Strada dei vini e del sapore (also in English). You could plan to visit the local parmigiano reggiano cheese factory in Campora or to a prosciutto di Parma factory in the area (La Strada del Prosciutto e dei Vini dei Colli).
We would be more than happy to help you plan your visit to this unique area of northern Italy, still largely unexplored by tourists.
