We are working for you!

We are currently working on maintenance and signposting on this trail. While work is under way, we might find better variants: for this reason there might be slight difference between the trail description and the actual itinerary. We will fix this as soon as we finish the work. We are currently revising description and details of the tour as well. Thanks for your patience!

The road passes through vineyards and the  surrounding scenery is absolutely spectacular. When you come to Vandrino, stay on the main road and make sure not to take any of the turn-offs.
