This is the perfect walk for spending a few hours in the open air, leaving the heart of Borgo Valsugana to get to a breathtaking panoramic point.Walking on an all-asphalted secondary road that goes out from the center of Borgo Valsugana, climbs to loc. Piagaro and then reaches loc. S. Giorgio. Entered the historical site, you can see the traces left by the soldiers during the Great War: walkways, trenches and tunnels.
