A short and easy walk to visit the archaeological area of the Torre dei Sicconi, to its garden and to enjoy a beautiful panomaric view over the Valsugana.
Following for about 900 m a comfortable dirt road on a slight slope, which crosses a beautiful chestnut forest, we arrive at our destination: The site of the "Archaeological Park of the Garden of the Tower of the Sicconi". The site is located at the top of a hill south-west of the town of Caldonazzo and archaeological investigations have unearthed the remains of a probable medieval castle and its tower. A recently recovered garden is the setting for the ruins. From the top of the hill, you can enjoy a magnificent view of Lake Caldonazzo, the Valsugana, the Valle del Centa and the Vigolana group. At the entrance of the site, there is the "Giardini della Torre" Farmhouse, open seasonally for refreshment. The return to the car park is just as easy and takes place along the same route as the first leg. The convenient dirt road allows a pleasant walk suitable for families with pushchairs in tow.
An easy walk along which numerous chestnut trees meet, perfect in autumn.

Campregheri, frazione di Centa San Nicolò
From the parking lot we enter the built-up area up to take the small road that, along the Via Claudia Augusta in the direction of Caldonazzo, leads to the Torre dei Sicconi. Following the comfortable road, totally unpaved and slightly sloping, we meet, after about 900 m, the junction for Caldonazzo. Continue to the left along the main road that leads to the village of Piatelle where you meet a typical farm surrounded by meadows and vineyards. After the town, we continue to descend towards our destination, which we reach after about 700 m. A short tour of the site allows you to admire the botanical garden surrounding the archaeological remains. For the return journey, retrace the route taken to the outward journey.
