Biella (56,90 km)
Highlights and tour details

The characteristic of this route is the beauty of the views over the plain, starting from Sordevolo, a pleasant hillside village where the "Passion of Christ" is staged every four years, thanks to the population who for that occasion transform themselves into a talented folk theatre company renowned throughout Europe.
Another enchanting place worth visiting is Zumaglia Castle, situated on the top of a hill amidst the varied flora of a beautiful park.
