Things to do


In autumn and spring the territory of Villanova offers to the lovers of mushroom picking many natural sights to be admired while collecting fungi. It is possible to explore the enchanting forest of Monte Minerva (Villanova Monteleone) where the undergrowth creates prolific amounts of mushrooms. Among the edible species it is worth mentioning the exquisite porcini mushroom, along with the field mushrooms and the king trumpet mushrooms. Mushroom picking is allowed, but with competence and with respect for the environment .
