Turn-by-turn directions

To reach Monte Agaro we recommend a nice excursion of ski mountaineering strating from the parking lot by Casa Saronnese, whcihc is situated some km befor Marande Locality "Funivie Lagorai".  On the left side of the house starts an easy path which runs along some turns in the woods and finally on open fields.
