Mixed route, which follows part of the European Path E5, between paved roads that lead to the discovery of the ancient villages and the ruins of the Castle of Segonzano, dirt roads between the terraced vineyards that descend to the Avisio stream and the path that passes through the famous Earthpyramids. All "seasoned" with some stops in the historic cellars and restaurants with km-0 products.
