Baiso is a pretty little town in the middle Reggio Apennines south-east of Reggio Emilia.
The town appears as a row of buildings clinging to the slopes of an unstable gully amphitheatre.
Baiso is perched on the brow of a strikingly eroded gully and surrounded by luxuriant dessert-like
The mild climate and the sports facilities (swimming-pool, sports fields, network of trails) make it an important tourist destination for nature lovers.
Baiso presents a very particular enclave of Byzantine-Romagna culture cuisine.
The traditional cuisine is proof of this, still today focused on sheep and mutton, instead of the Emilia's pork.
The rich presence of mushrooms in the area makes them an element that is also very present in the local cuisine, declined in all its tastiest forms.
The mountainous area allows long excursions surrounded by greenery, from trekking to mountain biking, through the gullies among woods full of mushrooms.
The municipality of Baiso borders on that of Carpineti, where it is possible to visit one of the most famous medieval fortresses of the powerful Canossa family: we are talking about the Castello delle Carpinete.
