The CFR in short

  • What is the CFR and where is it situated?

    The Cammino Fogazzaro Roi is an 80km trail stretching from Montegalda to Tonezza in the province of Vicenza. It ascends around 1,000 metres, but most of the climb (around 80%) is in the section from Velo d'Astico to Tonezza del Cimone. The walk is mainly off-road, along paths, river embankments, dirt tracks, and minor roads. The route is waymarked with brown metal signs, red and white stickers, or red and white paint.
  • Why the CFR?

    The trail was devised by the Associazione Cammini Veneti to take in some of the most stunning countryside around Vicenza and especially those places described by the writer Antonio Fogazzaro, and with connections to his great-grandson, Giuseppe Roi, a man of immense culture and patron of the arts. Cammini Veneti's main aim is to create well-signed, long distance walks in the countryside and hills in our area, offering stunning scenery and cultural insights. While there are already many walking and hiking trails in the mountain areas, the hills and countryside remain relatively undiscovered and despite the unfortunate encroachment of built-up areas in recent years, there is still a wealth of beauty to be explored.
  • When can I walk the trail?

    You can walk the trail any time of year but the best times are probably in spring and autumn.
  • How can I do the trail?

    You can walk or cycle the trail; no special equipment is required (you will need walking boots, and maybe poles and a backpack) and there are plenty of services along the way (bars, restaurants, B&Bs, hotels and farmstays but there are no campsites).

The Rigoni Stern route is coming

CRS argine

Cammini Veneti has been working for some time on the creation of the second Route, the Rigoni Stern route, dedicated to the famous writer of the Asiago Plateau - 7 Comuni, born on November 1, 1921. 2021 is therefore the year of the centenary of his birth.
The path starts from the Olympic Academy of Vicenza (Mario Rigoni Stern was an Olympic academic) to get to Asiago, initially following the Tesina embankment (later Astico), crossing the small Bregonze plateau, reaching the plateau of the 7 Municipalities climbing from Cogollo del Cengio, using in the final stretch the cycle / pedestrian path along the old disused railway Piovene Rocchette-Asiago.

As for the C.F.R., also for the C.R.S. we have tried to create a route immersed in nature as much as possible, avoiding busy roads as much as possible.

To date, provisional signs have been affixed, as some sections of the route are not yet definitive. The route measures about 80Km, a length similar to that of the C.F.R.

Our goal is to inaugurate the Rigoni Stern Walk on the occasion of the centenary of his birth. Follow our Facebook page to stay informed on all updates relating to the C.R.S.
