Located not far from Milano, in North Italy, the Castanese CLC promises the senior tourists to enrich their visit of the large city with a taste of the genuine life and landscape. It will be a "different" Italy from the stereotype and in the Castanese the guests will find a unique mix of cultural, artistic, historic stimuli and elements creating a natural bridge between the Central and Southern Europe.
The Castanese, with an area of 119 sqKm, is a rich and diversified landscape where the water represents a peculiar element: the Ticino river (the so called “blue river”), the Naviglio Grande and the Villoresi artificial channel.
Castanese is an ecologically sustainable and accessible territory: the various natural parks (Parco Ticino, Parco del Roccolo, Parco delle Rogge and the neighbouring Parco dell’Alto Milanese) offer unique and exciting experiences.
The visitor can walk in the Greenway of the Naviglio Grande, ride a horse or bicycle across the parks or the river side.
The visitor cannot miss the experience of the navigation by boat and admire the villas and palaces along the route, by passing under old bridges such as those of Castelletto-Cuggiono(1544) and of Padregnana in the Robecchetto (1595-1604).
