Paths that touch the soul

There are places where the physical and emotional distance between us and nature becomes so small that it almost disappears, where the sensation of this hug with nature materializes in scenarios of spirituality.

Itinerary

DAY 1 - ossuary of custoza by e-bike

You will leave the city behind, immersing yourself in the flavors of the Morainic Hills, a unique territory surrounded by green sceneries and natural landscapes. You will pass through characteristic villages such as Custoza, known for its “Custoza Doc” wine and the scene of the wars of Independence of 1848 and 1866.

You will reach the Custoza Ossuary located on the Belvedere hill, a monument that houses the remains of the fallen of the two battles. Immersed in the silence and peace of this place you will perceive its value and spiritual strength.

A path that winds through vineyards, cultivated fields and green hills.
