Castel San Pietro Terme Logo Be in Wonderland

Surrounded by a hilly landscape of breathtaking colours, Castel San Pietro Terme is located in a strategic position between Emilia and Romagna.

It is the perfect destination for a pleasant holiday enjoying nature, biking and e-biking excursions, beautiful scenery and good food and wine. Castel San Pietro Terme is the meeting point between the cities of Bologna and Imola. 

Named “Castello” by the locals, the city offers a variety of marked bicycle tourism trails for enjoying outdoor experiences, nestling in the picturesque valley touched by river Sillaro.

The city’s green heart is the Parco Lungo Sillaro, a park with a cycle and pedestrian path around it. Castel San Pietro Terme has medieval origins, founded in 1199 as a stronghold east of Bologna. The Cassero, a military fortification built to defend the area, with its Torre dell’Orologio (bell tower), symbolises the city’s protective boundary. Today, the Cassero houses a municipal theatre, a place of culture and performance like the city’s Arena municipal theatre.
