This is a particularly tough ascent, right from the very first stretch of hairpin bends which lead from Calliano, through numerous villages, up to the plateau. The state road no. 350 was built at the end of the XIX century to connect the Valle dell’Adige with Lavarone and the province of Vicenza. The going gets particularly tough on the last steep stretch up to the town of Folgaria.
Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.

Boundless is the word which most often comes to mind when describing a high plateau: a word which in this case fits the bill perfectly since the plateau stretches from Folgaria with its many villages, as far as Lavarone and Luserna. The area is dotted with numerous forts which saw action during the Great War, and is also intersected by the splendid “Path of Peace” (a unique hiking route along the old war front between Italy and Austria – the only of its kind in Europe). The area is also a paradise for mountain bikers and features the magnificent “100 km dei Forti” Itinerary.
