Climbing and trekking in Lumignano
Thanks to Lumignano’s high quality rock and the beautiful location, these cliffs attract many climbers from all over Europe. The best period is winter, spring and autumn, while in summer the Colli Berici offer different paths for advanced and beginner trekkers. Here you can visit some of the most wonderful retreats, monasteries and cloisters surrounded by the hills. We highly recommend to see Eremo di San Cassiano, which can be visited every first Sunday of the month for free (9-17).

From Fattoria Grimana, you can reach different golf clubs, but the best one for location and services is on the Berici Hills: 18-holes, restaurant, sauna, driving range, putting green, pro-shop.

Trekking and Mountain Bike
There are many places to reach on foot, by mountain bike or bicycle while discovering the most beautiful spots on the Asiago Plateau, the Dolomites, along the River Brenta and on Mount Grappa.
One of the trekking path we want to recommend to who want to put her/himself to the test is the Strada delle 52 Gallerie. It is a monumental work of military ingineering built during the first world war. The path is 6.5 Km long, along which you will pass 52 galleries excavated in the rock.
If you are up to dedicate 4 days to your mind, you can follow the Fogazzaro-Roi path from Montegalda to Tonezza del Cimone, along the places described by the famous writer Antonio Fogazzaro.
