The route consists entirely of paved roads. Make sure you have lights for passing through a number of tunnels. It is a long route starting from Alpette, with stretches of moderate gradient and a beautiful view of the  Valle Orco, which connects two slopes and passes through many villages. The Val Soana, which is very narrow on account of its river origin, is covered with lush vegetation and typical broadleaf woodland consisting mainly of chestnut trees which gradually give way to beeches further down. Before setting off again, at Campiglia you can learn something about the role of man in the relationship with the natural environment at the L’uomo e i coltivi (Man and Crops) Visitor Centre.
