Highlights and tour details
The walk leads to the basin of glacial origin which is home to Lake Pistono. Along cobbled roads and ancient trails that wind between vineyards and chestnut woods, it is possible to admire the castle of Montalto.
The “Variante del Maggio” trail branches off at the foot of the castle and leads to one of the most interesting vantage points of the Morainic Amphitheatre of Ivrea (30 min – 0.60 km – 90 m altitude difference).
