The trail starts 100 metres away from the square outside the Cava Bomba geo-paleontological museum on the left-hand side of the road, towards the town centre of Cinto Euganeo.
The trail climbs the chalky southern slope of Mount Cinto. After passing by a stone cottage, it runs along the edge of a terraced vineyard surrounded by olive trees and then climbs through a forest of black locust trees. Keep walking along the bridleway that crosses a thermophile oak forest full of white oak, South European flowering ash, tree heather, rock-rose, butcher's broom and wild asparagus. After a short uphill bend with a wooden fence, you'll reach level ground where the old dirt road once used by rhyolite quarrymen ends up. Here you'll come across masegne: volcanic blocks of stone used as park benches. From the level ground, keep left and walk along the bridleway through the chestnut forest. After a few gentle bends in the road, the view looks out over the central-southern hills from Mount Venda to nearby Gemola and Villa Beatrice d'Este, as far as distant Mount Rua and the hills of Monselice and Baone.Further information
