Carry on along the tarmac road, turn left and walk through the small hamlet Salieto until you reach a crossroads. Keep left and follow Via delle Guide until you cross the small bridge over the river Bigontina and reach the church Chiesa della Madonna della Difesa. This church is also worth a visit: in its current form it dates back to 1750, but it was first built in the 15th century as a tribute to the Madonna for the victory against the soldiers of Sigismund of Luxembourg, who greatly outnumbered the men defending the Ampezzo valley. Continue along the road which runs alongside the cemetery and brings you back to the starting point in a couple of minutes.
By car - The car park is close to the town centre, near the gym Palestra Revis, the cemetery and the church Chiesa della Difesa. Alternatively, you can park at Palestra Revis or at another car park near the town centre, and walk to the starting point.
By bus - Take a bus to Piazza Roma, and from there you can reach the starting point in a few minutes, by taking Via Difesa and Via del Parco.
Walking along a well-kept trail that’s mostly flat. No obstacles are present.
