Meeting at Castelletto di Miramare, housing the Visitor Center of the Marine Protected Area in Grignano or in the village of Contovello.
The naturalistic walk leaves from the promontory of Miramare, and develops along the Nature Trail leading to Contovello, a village on the edge of the karst plateau, across the karst woods and the terraced fields cultivated with vineyards, with wonderful views of the Gulf and Miramare Castle.
The itinerary, accessible in all seasons, gives the opportunity to appreciate the several natural environments of the Karst Plateau and the Gulf: from the foreshore, across the state-owned Botanic Park, and towards the sparse karst woods (characterized by hop hornbeam, downy oak, common hawthorn, etc.) up to the karst plateau, where large sections are covered with vineyards and olive groves.
The return journey follows the same itinerary of the outward journey.
It is recommended to wear sports clothes with closed shoes and rubber sole.

This itinerary belongs to the proposals suggested by the Marine Protected Area to discover the promontory of Miramare and the karst context, but it can be reserved for organized groups or school groups.
It is possible to follow the whole route (round trip to return to the departure point) or to carry out only the stretch from Contovello to Miramare or vice-versa, and then return by public means of transport.

The trail is not accessible either for people with disabilities, or wheelchairs, or for prams.
Directions: the meeting points are accessible by public means of transport (urban bus).
