“Fogazzaro” Nordic Walking Park in Velo d’Astico

Itinerario Fogazzariano Velo d'Astico

The “Fogazzaro” Nordic Wallking Park, which opened on Saturday July 6, 2013, offers a choice of two circuits:

The Fogazzaro Route in Velo d’Astico (6.5 km)

The route takes in points of cultural interest including the three villas connected to Fogazzaro: Villa Carrè Ciscato, Villa Velo, and Villa Montanina. The houses may only be viewed from the outside however guided tours with prof. G. M. Filosofo may be arranged by appointment, and include entrance to the exhibition on Fogazzaro in the ex-primary school in Lago.

The historical-artistic Route in Meda (16.6 km)

The route begins outside the St. George’s medieval church, which can be viewed from the outside, then proceeds to Meda, with the Salita del Castello where Ezzelino il Tiranno lived in reclusion for a time, then up to the Madonna Shrine, situated halfway up to Summano summit; the route drops down and then up again to the Cross, built from bits of shrapnel from World War I; it passes through “Croxe de la Pasion” in Rialbo and then back to the starting point; this walk is suited to persons with good levels of fitness.
