A must for cycling enthusiasts, the variety of the landscape and the uphill/descent intervals give rhythm to the route and offer exciting challenges.

A circuit to discover the Cembra Valley in all its characteristics: the typical morphology defined by the impetuous flow of the Avisio river, the expanses of vineyard fields supported by endless hectares of dry stone walls, the small peasant villages perched on the mountain slopes and the quarries for the extraction of porphyry, dark red in colour, with which roads and houses are paved.

The itinerary reveals the soul of this valley, along with its authenticity and spontaneity.

Suggestions

Along the route are wine cellars and restaurants where you can taste the liquid gold of the valley and peasant cuisine. Each village has its own little church with frescoes, sometimes of great value, as in the case of San Pietro in Cembra and San Leonardo in Lisignago. The route passes near the famous earth pyramids of Segonzano.
