Relaxing stroll to meet local producers and restaurants with km-0 cuisine, admiring very varied views of the Valley: from the terraced vineyards, result of a "heroic" cultivation and recently named "Historic rural landscape of Italy", to lush woods and green and enchanted meadows .

Author’s recommendation

We advise you to check opening hours of the agriturismus and restaurants and to make a reservation.

Among the points of historical interest we mention the church of San Floriano in Valternigo, which can be reached with a short detour and, in loc. Ville, the remaining tower of the ancient Castello della Rosa.

Equipment

Even on relatively short easy outings make sure to take all you need so you don't run into trouble if things take an unexpected turn, for example a storm blows up or you have a sudden drop in energy levels.

What you should have in your rucksack:

  • water canteen (1L)
  • snacks (e.g. mixed dried fruit or chocolate)
  • First aid kit
  • windproof jacket
  • fleece
  • change of t-shirt and socks (in a plastic bag)
  • make sure to wear or at least bring a pair of long trousers
  • hat
  • sun screen
  • sunglasses
  • gloves
  • whistle to attract attention in an emergency
  • emergency telephone number Mountain Rescue 112

 

Make sure you're wearing the right footwear for the trail and season. The going can get rough and rocky underfoot and a pair of hiking boots will protect you from sprains.

And finally... don't forget to bring your camera! You'll need it to capture the stunning views.
