Tips: wear appropriate footwear for uneven terrain and clothing suitable for the season. The route is passable throughout the year. The summer months are the least ideal for doing the walk. Remember in the hottest periods to bring water and a hat. The route traditionally starts from Piazza Venturi in Monteforte d’Alpone. For those in Soave it is recommended to start from Via Bassano at the intersection of the road leading to the castle and Via Monti. Because it is a circular path, it can be taken either direction.
