The Cammino Fogazzaro-Roi (the Fogazzaro-Roi Trail) is the first of the Cammini Veneti (Veneto Trails), long routes (ideally suited to walking) which the Associazione Cammini Veneti plans to develop in the countryside and hills in the Veneto area.
The Cammino Fogazzaro-Roi is the result of the work of a group of volunteers who love their land and the harmony that the rhythm of walking brings. This particular walk has been devised to introduce people to an area of Vicenza and its province, which threads from Montegalda up to Tonezza del Cimone, bringing together sport, environment and culture.
The Cammino Fogazzaro-Roi passes through places and past villas celebrated by the Vicentine writer Antonio Fogazzaro and cherished by his great-grandson the Marquess Giuseppe Roi, ambassador of Veneto culture and beauty throughout the world. It is no coincidence that the Cammino Fogazzaro-Roi was first conceived on the centenary of our great writer's death (1911-2011).
In that year, thanks to the support of the local authorities and institutions, the first signs were positioned along the 80-km-long route that passes through 14 different municipalities. It can be covered in two days by bike and in four on foot. In addition to a clear signage, it is possible to download detailed maps for each stage. (For the fittest walkers, this itinerary can be completed in three stages).
STAGE 1: Montegalda - Piazza dei Signori Vicenza, along the banks of the Bacchiglione river
STAGE 2: Vicenza - Marano Vicentino, along the cycling path
STAGE 3: Marano - Velo d'Astico
STAGE 4: Velo d'Astico - Tonezza del Cimone
Discover the entire itinerary on the official website www.camminiveneti.it: it will take you from the Montegalda countryside, along banks and pedestrian roads, to Vicenza and from Vicenza to the breath-taking water springs, reaching the Astico Valley and then up to 1000 of altitude, in Tonezza del Cimone.
