Embark on a journey to explore the rural mountain economy of Fiavé and Favrio, centred around the production of milk and its various derivatives.

The Sentiero del Latte starts in Fiavé and heads towards the small hamlet of Favrio, passing through a stretch of woodland. On the way back the trail skirts the peat bog nature reserve. Along the route you'll find small and large stables, green meadows, cornfields and woods, some of which are grazing grounds for animals in fine weather.

Not to be missed: the villages of Fiavé and Favrio with their typical rural architecture, in particular the fascinating ère, large spaces located on the first floor of farmhouses, which were once used to store hay and fodder and were accessed via stone bridges.

Punto di partenza
Fiavé
Directions

From Fiavé, we follow Via San Zeno as far as the church, where we turn right into Via Stumiaga. After a few metres, we turn left into the small road that leads down to the hamlet of Stumiaga. We cross the village and reach the main road. On the other side of the road, we take the path towards the cemetery and then turn right to follow the small road that runs parallel to the main road. After about 1 km, near a large stable, the path takes a sharp bend and continues uphill towards Favrio. When we reach the small church of San Biagio, we take the small road on the right and enter the forest. The route coincides with the SAT433 path for about 500 metres, but we soon leave it to take the path to the right. After up and down stretch of about 1 km, we meet the main road again, which we cross to take the country lane between the peat bog and the stable. Before reaching the Carera lake, we turn right to return to Fiavé.
