walk on the Romanesque path that connects the two villages. The path is sloping but at the end you have a wonderful view of the lake.
The route winds through the wood that connects the two villages. Steep path at the beginning and then gentle up to the final climb at the entrance to the village.
Cannero-Donego via Cassino
the journey begins with the walk to the lake, a short section connecting the two paths on the main road and then uphill towards Cassino. Reached Cassino there are two options to reach Donego, with the path in the woods or on the carriage road.
The route starts from Cannero at 220 meters above sea level up to Trarego at 770 meters above sea level. Half of the path takes place on a paved road and the other half on a mule track. Much of the route is in the shade, therefore recommended in the summer months.
the path that connects the two villages is a portion of the path of the via delle genti that connected all the villages of the Piedmontese shore in the past when there was no road along the lake. Halfway through we find the village of Carmine Superiore. Dating back to the year one thousand where it had the function of a stronghold for the population who lived by the lake, it then became inhabited and in the 14th century the Church of San Gottardo was built which can be admired. Suspended on the rock overlooking the lake with a superb panorama, it is surrounded by the village which has been gradually restructured and inhabited.
