Traveling with the Treno Natura
The Treno Natura [Nature Train] really takes you back in time: this is the impression that will endure in the minds of those who will have the opportunity to take it at least once.
Deep is the emotion that one feels when boarding a centoporte [multi-door] carriage, hauled by a period littorina [diesel railcar] or by one of those dark “smoking giants” on which our grandparents used to travel, to the accompaniment of whistles, puffs and creaking and huffing pistons in the background.
Many are the itineraries, unusual and irresistible all of them, because of the beauty of the lands crossed and because some vistas and some perspectives can be enjoyed only from the train.
In some stretches there are no roads besides the railroad and only cultivated fields and flocks of sheep can be seen: time has really come to a stop and the Treno Natura gives us the access key.
You will be able to detrain at romantic stations to then venture along foot trails, to reach churches, towns and castles, to stop at a farm for a tasting and to seize the opportunity to take part in feasts and festivals.
