Local events

A new cycle path has recently been opened nearby, along the river in the Adige Park.

It is possible to have riding lessons, or go for a ride, at the local horse riding stables.

The "L'Italia che non sai" ( Hidden Italy) programme on Rai1 showed the beautiful parts of this area and typical local products. One of the dishes presented was "El Capel de Napoleon" (Napoleon's hat) an original dish here in San Martino Buon Albergo. This dish is a kind of ravioli, in the shape of Napoleon's hat, with an asparagus filling. (Asparagus is grown locally in Mambrotta, an outlying vilage)
