School Groups

Monte Serra Educational Center 

Parco Monteserra Association, in charge for the management of the area, is a group of volunteers who care for the maintenance of the park trying to create a place where conservation, enjoyment and sustainable development can coexist. Thanks to their enthusiasm, in a few years Monte Serra Park has become an important educational centre and a desired destination for many families, school groups and tourists.

Activities for groups aim to promote the principles of nature conservation by the knowledge and the discovery of its most important features. Accompanying guides are competent and qualified, both for young and elder visitors.
