MTB-La via dei Terrazzamenti

The Via dei Terrazzamenti is a 70-kilometre pedestrian and cycle path linking Morbegno and Tirano, the lower and the middle valley, at 300 to 700 metres asl, halfway up the Rhaetian slopes, with terraced vineyards and a valuable cultural heritage. Along the way are 40 rest areas with benches, bike rests and info panels about nearby artistic heritage sites.

Ovest. The stretch between Morbegno and Sondrio is fairly long, with a big overall difference in altitude. Mostly tarmacked, it also has some parts on rough tracks and steep climbs. Its many forks call for special attention to signs (ellow arrows on sticks and red and white signs on walls.)
