Valle della Primavera in Monticolo

The Valle della Privamera, literally translated the Spring Valley, stretches from lake Monticolo to lake Caldaro and is covered by a sea of flowers.

The walk across the Valle della Primavera is ideal for a family excursion. The period which is most recommendable for this tour is spring, that is to say the beginning or March, as this valley is already in full blossom in this period. The flower that prevails in this charming valley is the snowdrop, carpeting the valley.

However, let’s start our walk! The starting point of our tour is the parking space at lake Monticolo, where we follow the narrow asphalted road to Monticolo. At the church in the village of Monticolo we turn right, after 20 minutes (at the first crossroad) we turn left in order to reach the Valle della Primavera. Following the signposts across the Valle della Primavera, across an area of vineyards and a hiking trail we reach the western riverside of Lake Caldaro.

After a refreshing drink in one of the taverns at Lake Caldaro, we start our way back by taking the same trail to reach the starting point. Alternatively you can take the bus to S. Michele/Appiano, where in summer months a bus heads for the lake of Monticolo.

Please note: If you would like to do this walk, inform yourselves about the current hiking conditions on the spot.
