Primiero and Vanoi
Primiero and Vanoi, a direct link between the past and the future The route starts from Siror, where a special carne fumada (smoked meat) has been produced for over forty years. Tonadico is the starting point of the educational trail Tonadico - Cimerlo, which leads up to Val Canali, a “bio-diverse valley,” thanks to the important eco-sustainable projects promoted by the Paneveggio - Pale di San Martino Park. Villa Welsperg is worth a visit to see the caretaker’s garden. Throughout the area, nature and its flavours inspire many walks, also beneath the stars. Younger children can enjoy riding on donkeys near the highest cultivation point of small fruits in Trentino, at the foot of the Passo Cereda. In Mezzano, a village listed amongst the most beautiful in Italy, a stop at the Cooperative Dairy is a must. Here you can taste Tosèla and the Nostrano Primiero cheese; the excellent ones are produced in mountain dairies and ideal when accompanied by local honey. In the summer, you can also find the Botìro of Primiero from the mountain dairies. To discover where and how Botìro butter is made you have to go to Malga Fossernica in Valle del Vanoi, on the edge of the Tour of the Ethnographic Path dedicated to the mountain dairies and organised by the Vanoi Eco-museum. Finally, above Zortea, you can find strawberries and blueberries and herbal teas made with wild herbs.
