The route is always marked by special signs with the words "Giro delle 4 frazioni" in a clockwise direction. Start from the square in the village of Vezzano and follow the road towards SP 18dir to reach the village of Fraveggio. Here, continue towards the centre of the hamlet and climb up towards Lon on a minor road. Once in Lon, from the centre of the village, head slightly uphill past the houses and enter the woods following the SAT path 627 "San Vili", continuing until you reach the village of Ciago. The last section descends towards Vezzano, still along a signposted trail through the wood.
