Reserve Information Point and Picnic Area
Those arriving by car at the Reserve can stop at the “Riccio parking area” and can immediately drop by the Information Point: here the Reserve operators will give you all the information you need for an interesting visit to the protected area. Close to the car park and the Information Point is the “La Talpa” picnic area, much appreciated by tourists due to its spring and summer attendance.
It is a large area of about 5,000 square metres, with numerous tables, several fire spots for cooking meat and a cool drinking fountain. There are also games for the little ones in the area. To complete the facilities and services of this first area, next to the information point, there are toilet facilities, also for the disabled people, another drinking fountain and a small educational pond.
