The Pareto tour

Ring tour passable in both directions, it can be considered a “four seasons” route precisely because it is possible to do it in all seasons even the winter one. Length of about 60 km for a drop of about 500 meters. Estimated time just over 2 hours. The route does not present great difficulties, it is necessary to go up the Staffora Valley up to Verzi, if you go around in a clockwise direction, or go up the Val Curone in the other direction. In common there is the ascent of Pareto from the two sides, which are the same as the difficulty, here you cross fascinating gullies that touch the asphalt. Places of interest: visit the ancient village of Varzi, and in Volpedo the birthplace of the painter Giuseppe Pellizza author of many famous paintings including the Quarto Stato.
