Set off from Campo Marzio taking via Due Rogge and walk up to Piazza Ortigara. A route sign on the underpass side invites you to take via Convento. Where the road branches off, turn right into via Maggiore Morello and walk as far as the bicycle-pedestrian track that flanks the Loghella stream and safely leads to Vallonara.
Look north and south to appreciate the suggestive hilly crown giving a view over the former Monastery of San Fabiano e San Sebastiano on the Pauso hill and the Castello Superiore (Upper Castle) on the Pausolino Hill, the hills of Roveredo Basso and San Luca, with the Crosara pass in the background to the west and the Southern slope of the Asiago Plateau.
At the end of the bicycle-pedestrian track, turn right into Vallonara. Cross the Rameston main road and walk past the elementary school and the sports field. At the cemetery, on the left, take the CAI trail no. 800 uphill, which is known as “Sentiero del Sette” because of its characteristic winding ascent. It is an ancient way of communication to the Asiago Plateau through Tortima. Once at the asphalt road that goes to Valle San Floriano, cross it and continue straight ahead on the path that leads to Capitelli, with its beautiful Sanctuary.
The ascent continues through the wood until a point where a brief detour on the right goes downhill to the bottom of the valley in order to see the ancient wash basins of Contrà Campi. After the visit, go back to
the main route and continue uphill along the winding path until the parking area of the La Rondinella restaurant in Tortima. From here, turn left on an asphalt road and follow the signs to Contrà Busa, Contrà Alto and Contrà Boffi. This stretch of route is particularly panoramic: enjoy the view upon the flat land with the Euganei hills, the Berici hills and the Piccole Dolomiti (lit. Small Dolomites, i.e. Pre-Alps of the province of Vicenza) in the background. When in Contrà Boffi, turn right. The path goes into the wood and comes out of it in Contrà Turchia. Past the bridge, turn left to take the road known as Strada del Sejo or the ancient Roman road to Crosara. At the centre of Crosara turn right through a narrow passage and take via Caribollo: walk on an asphalt road until Vallonara. Once here, take the bicycle-pedestrian lane at the end of which via Maggiore Morello is on the right. It will only take a few minute walk to reach Piazza Ortigara and then Campo Marzio.

The hilly environment described here offers a remarkable variety of natural features that shape the landscape, including the morphology, the vegetation and the presence of human activities.


Along the part of the route that goes from Vallonara to the hilly hamlets of Capitelli, Campi and Pianari you have several suggestive views that open up towards the flat land. The numerous terraces and isolated cottages that dot the mountain slope are just as interesting. You come across meadows as well as small areas of olive tree and vine cultivation, isolated cherry trees, often surrounded by valley floor thickets with the characteristic hilly broad-leaved plants.
Walking from Contrà Pianari to Tortima along the “Sentiero del Sette” path you start to notice more spontaneous vegetation, typical for a chalky, less humid soil, due to the presence of many rock outcrops and the declivity of the hill that hardly retains water. A thicket of black or Austrian pines characterizes the setting in a distinctive way.
Generally, woody and shrub-like vegetation grows more on the lower part of the route, while on the slope of the Asiago Plateau it is often difficult for it to develop. The meadows and the undergrowth are relatively rich in herbaceous species with interesting flowers. If you wish to recognize them all, you definitely need the assistance of a botany pocket guide. It is therefore advisable to start with the most common and eye-catching species. Observation of the various types of meadows will help you notice that the flowers partially vary from one meadow to another: different species grow in sunny and in shady meadows, in dry and in wet meadows, in rocky and in mown meadows. In the spring, all the meadows show a massive flowering of dandelions, while the less widespread and inconspicuous wild orchids show up with uniquely beautiful flowers.
In the higher part of the route, along the hamlets of Tortima, you can immediately notice a change in the landscape. The maximum bending of the “knee-shaped fold” has been reached: it is an age-old geological phenomenon that emphasizes the beginning of the Asiago Plateau. You may correctly state that you are in the mountains here as the conventional altitude for a mountain is set at more than 600 meters above sea level. Meadows and hedges mainly characterize the route stretch from Tortima to Contrà Boffi and the view becomes more open.
On the unpaved stretch of the route going downhill until the valley floor, the landscape is completely different, above all because of relatively high humidity. The same applies along La Pria Lunga or Cassoni path (Strada del Sejo), because most of it travels through the mixed broad-leaved underbrush until it reaches Crosara.
From here to Vallonara, the asphalt road descends among shady and wet thickets and more or less cultivated meadows. The rocks in this stretch are not mainly calcareous (they contain sandstone, for instance), the soil is therefore wetter and the vegetation is abundant and varied, but it is not, however, very different from other hilly areas. Some old chestnut trees will strike your eyes on the way because of their impressiveness.
