Turn-by-turn directions

The itinerary starts from the town of Faver, a small town characterized by the food and wine tradition still alive in local producers including the Paolazzi Distillery, the Paolazzi Butche shop and the restaurant Locanda del Passatore. From here descend following the European Path E5, along the ancient Corvaia path, untill the historic Cantillaga bridge in the Avisio river. From here, turn right towards Piazzo. Near the cemetery, a detour to the left allows you to reach the ruins of the Segonzano Castle, a panoramic point over the vineyards and a historical and cultural point of interest. When you reach the chapel of Sant'Antonio, go down to the town of Piazzo where the church of the Immaculate Conception and the Palazzo Baroni a Prato with the homonymous cellar are located. From here it is possible to walk back to Faver or, following the E5 path, go uphill to the locality of Stedro where the Giacomozzi restaurant and distillery is located. From here you proceed in a gentle ascent to the panoramic point overlooking the Earth Pyramids of Segonzano and descend the path, which crosses the entire site, until you reach the Regnana stream and the Chiosco alle Piramidi. A path takes you back to the village of Piazzo from where you descend along the provincial road to the Ponte dell'amicizia bridge on the Avisio. After crossing the bridge, immediately turn left onto the secondary road that runs alongside the stream. You reach Faver strolling through the countryroad.

Equipment

Even on relatively short easy outings make sure to take all you need so you don't run into trouble if things take an unexpected turn, for example a storm blows up or you have a sudden drop in energy levels.

What you should have in your rucksack:

 

  • water canteen (1L)
  • snacks (e.g. mixed dried fruit or chocolate)
  • First aid kit
  • windproof jacket
  • fleece
  • change of t-shirt and socks (in a plastic bag)
  • make sure to wear or at least bring a pair of long trousers
  • hat
  • sun screen
  • sunglasses
  • gloves
  • whistle to attract attention in an emergency
  • emergency telephone number Mountain Rescue 112

 

Make sure you're wearing the right footwear for the trail and season. The going can get rough and rocky underfoot and a pair of hiking boots will protect you from sprains.

And finally... don't forget to bring your camera! You'll need it to capture the stunning views.
