First, the trail head is located at the cemetery so follow the signs for that as there are none in town for locating the trail. When we got to the first sculpture there was a speaker blaring that ruined the beauty of the natural area....More

First of all we walked down to the river and back and then we had to walk to Trivigno so we walked it all. The idea is really good and the conception excellent. We are not fluent Italian speakers but that didn't spoil the entertainment....More
