from 01/05 to 31/10
Departure:Municipality of Pont-Saint-Martin – Piazza IV Novembre
Arrival:Plout Hamlet - “Les Druges” Picnic Area - Municipality of Saint-Marcel
Classic route of exploration in the heart of the central valley. Among the recommended stops, don’t miss the Fénis castle: Conveniently park your bike and visit this splendid manor from the 14th – 15th century, extraordinary example of medieval Aosta Valley architecture. And then onwards, to the Saint-Marcel valley. If you’ve ended up here totally relaxed, a spectacular street immersed in the woods awaits you, charming in summer and striking in autumn for the thousands of colors of nature, ending at the Plout sanctuary, at an altitude of 3,143 feet.
At this point, the choice is yours: You can stop at the sanctuary and enjoy the view that opens onto the central valley, or proceed further for about six miles to Druges, where the road ends in a large picnic area.
