Walk through colorful meadows and grazing cows with a panoramic view on the peaks of the Lagorai Chain.
Along the itinerary there are many bell towers - and therefore the villages - that can be counted by looking around. A large part of the route is on a dirt road that offers a very wide view over the valley and the Lagorai chain that stands out in front of you.
Path easily accessible with a city stroller except the first part of the way back, where small stones could obstruct the smaller wheels.
