Start in the centre of the medieval hamlet of Baschi; S. Nicolò Church shelters a beautiful triptych, that was painted in 1440 by Giovanni di Paolo. The ground floor of the City Hall shelters the Antiquarium, i.e. a collection of the main archaeological finds of the area of Scoppieto. Take the national road SS205 for about 800 m, then walk along the gravel path that goes under the A1 motorway. The path runs along the motorway as far as the estate of Podere la Rota: here, you can visit the archaeological site of Porto Pagliano (a Roman harbour, dating back to the 1st century B.C.E., i.e. the late Republican period); if you wish, you can also join the Orvieto trail from this point. If you stay on the Baschi-Corbara trail, go along the Tiber as far as the Sant'Angelo di Pantanelli Nunnery; from here, you can easily reach Corbara – going straight ahead – or else you can turn right and take the asphalted road leading to the Corbara Dam. Then walk along the lake's banks for about 1 km and take the cart-road on your right: it will lead you back to the starting point.
