The circular tour of Campagnola

Circular tour from Malcesine to Campagnola and back

Seasons

The tour

The circular tour along the beaches and the olive tree groves, leading you from Malcesine to Campagnola going along the beach. You go back to Malcesine on a small pedestrian only street running along Via Navene Vecchia.

Be ready for a 6,6 kilometers route involving 250 m of both elevation gain and loss.

It's an easy and short route, suitable for everyone.
It's perfect if you need a break or like to do some light exercise to feel active.

The route on foot

Easy and relaxing tour, perfect if you need to stretch your legs and get some fresh air.

The route by bicycle

Easy route, completely on tarmacked road, suitable for the families.
You'll ride on a light ascent from Campagnola to Malcesine.

The nordic walking route

This is the n.1 route of the Nordic Walking Park.
An easy route, light blue. Leave in the plain on the cycle lane and come back walking on a light ascent. This route always enables people to practice the Nordic Walking technique.

Running

Leave in the plain on the cycle lane and come back running on a light ascent and on a light descent on the way back. The ascent is about 2 kilometers long. We wouldn't recommend this route during the hottest summer hours because there aren't any shady spots in the first section which is located in the cycle lane that runs along the lakefront.

Route description

From Malcesine you go down to Paina, to the North of Castello, along the beach and keep going straight on the cycle lane passing through the small port of Rettelino and the paragliding landing area.

Once you reach Campagnola, at the Hotel Sailing Center, cross the Via Gardesana and go up on the tarmacked road leading to Via Navene Vecchia.

Head south, always uphill and take the small street that you can see on your right, immediately after the B&B Casa Benamati.
Keep walking toward the South on a small uphill pedestrian street that cross the olive tree groves for about 1,5 km.

When you get to the end of the little street you are on Via Navene Vecchia.
Keep going South on a small section in the plain and then downhill until you get to Malcesine.

Variation

This is the n.1 route of the Nordic Walking Park: the Sottodossi circular tour.
This is the shorter variation: after the cable car station, before the ascent, take the street on the left to Località Sottodossi and keep going straight on a dirt road that stretches inside an olive tree grove. Once the dirt road is over, go down on the left on the steep descent ending up on the cycle lane.
Keep going on the left now, heading to the South and go back to Malcesine walking along the beach.

Route starting point

Leave from the Tourist information Centre of Malcesine, at the bus station, on the Via Gardesana.
