50 km / Difference in height 490mt. After passing the Rocchetta hill, in the distance we will see the church of Treville which, like a motionless sentinel, will accompany us for about 10 km and then reach it, passing by a narrow asphalted road that runs surrounded by woods and vineyards, we will pass through its square, one of the most panoramic places in Monferrato. We will visit the Romanesque parish church of S. Quirico and then cross the villages of Cella Monte and Rosignano. We will go back along a very panoramic road that runs on the ridges of the Casalesi hills to then reach the town of Pontestura and then the destination.
Third excursion – Route 26
40 km / Difference in height 300mt. The SS 26 starts from Ivrea and arrives in Aosta, it is the symbol of the conjunction between the land of the Canavese and the Aosta Valley. The SS 26 stands on an ancient Roman road, still visible in some points, going through it you can relive the history of these places, immersed in a unique panorama: from the “heroic” vineyards carved out of the steep mountains, to the remains of the castles that dominated this ancient gateway to the Aosta Valley. Typical of these areas, in addition to various autochthonous vines of Nebbiolo, are the Balmetti: ancient cellars carved out of the rough rock of the mountain. The Dora Baltea, a river born at the appendages of Mont Blanc, will accompany us on this journey, a river once sailed by the Roman ships that reached Augusta Praetoria Salassorum (Aosta).
Fourth excursion – From prehistory to industrial times
50 km / Difference in height 450mt.

During the tour we will be able to admire the unique panorama of the Serra d’Ivrea: formed in the Quaternary during a great glaciation, it embeds Lake Viverone, the heart of the Morainic Amphitheater of Ivrea, like a precious gem. We will partly travel the roads of the Via Francigena immersed in the typical vineyards of this area and by some churches that testify to the passage of the Pilgrims.
