Despite the minimum distance of 40 km, these two areas are climatically different and offer two great-looking scenery. The landscape of Valnerina typically intense blue-green, which finds its highest expression in the autumn when the maples glow red, purple and yellow, as opposed to the bright hills of the Colli Amerini in spring with warm colors, the yellow of sunflowers, brown earth and green olives.
