A very scenic tour that goes up to an altitude of 1600, allowing you to test your resistance uphill on the notorious Vallarsa bends. The arrival is in Campogrosso, in the magnificent setting of the Piccole Dolomites. Along the way you will find many ideas for scenic stops and various inspirations to return to these places and learn more about them. In fact, the area is rich in testimonies related to the Great War, such as Forte Pozzacchio, the trenches of Matassone or the Trincerone, which runs alongside the road that leads to the Malga Zugna Refuge. Once in the city, you can't miss a stop at the Campana dei Caduti. Also plan a brief stop to admire the Hermitage of San Colombano, perched on the gorge of the Leno stream.

Author’s recommendation
