Sasso Marconi, already known and a Tourist Municipality and the City of Wine, is a careful and active participant in the development of agritourism activities and tourist offers, both for the possible work expansion and returns for farms and their related activities, as well as to protect the territory where they operate.
Especially interesting is the Tourist Guidebook, recently published, which now comes with a map that highlights the numerous itineraries and their great historical, cultural and naturalistic interest.
The farm is only 2 Km from the center of town, approximately 5 Km from the motorway. With Bologna (18 Km) and Casalecchio di Reno (8 Km.) nearby, as well as important tourist and cultural locations such as Florence, Ravenna, Ferrara, Venice etc. , makes it and excellent base for excursions.
Connection via train with the city (25 minute run), provides our guests with yet another service.
WHAT TO DO
The municipality of Sasso Marconi is part of the territory that hosts Strada dei Vini e dei Sapori dell'Appennino Bolognese (The road of wines and flavors of the Bolognese Apenines) and the Strada dei Vini e dei Sapori Città Castelli e Ciliegi (The road of Wines and Flavors of Citta Castelli and Cherries) of Bologna and Modena and the area that produces the typical cherry of Vignola; twinned with the cities of Helston, in Cornwall (UK), Sassenage (France) and Siderno (Calabria).
The Oasis of San Gherardo is of great environmental interest: recently opened to the public, it is situated at the foot of the awesome and impressive ravine of Contrafforte Pliocenico, it can be visited upon request by groups and on scheduled days. For information visit the web site infosasso. it

WHAT TO SEE
La Rupe symbol of Sasso Marconi, welcomes you to this lush territory that surrounds the agritourism, so rich in nature, culture and arts.
Abandon yourself to the smooth silence of these places, where time beats slowly, away from the frenzy of the city.
Among the attractions of the area you have:
1 Museo Marconi - Villa Griffone: The imposing Villa Griffone as seen from the main road. Marconi's Mausoleum is at road level and built into the side of the hill to the front of the Villa.
The Villa is now owned by the University of Bologna and does contain a number of laboratories of the Department of Electronics, Informatics and Systems Theory and the offices of the "Fondazione Guglielmo Marconi". Fortunately, Marconi's Attic Laboratory and the Museum are open to visitors.
Signs to the Marconi Mausoleum clearly mark the route. It very well sign posted and virtually impossible to miss it!
