network paths roero

The Ecomuseum of the Rocche of Roero ha s activated a Network of Thematic paths that permit one to discover the beauties and peculiarities of the landscape. Through the paths immersed in nature it is possible to discover the environmental varieties, the cultivations and the traditions of the Roero.

Each path is devoted to a peculiar theme and each theme is highlighted and explained by many bulletins boards placed along the way.
The paths, identified by poles and signals, were created for public use: on the website it is possible to freely download the GPS track of each path, see the photogallery and the Google map with technical details and points of interest.
On request, it is possible to book a naturalistic tour-guide service both on foot or by mountain bike, or to rent the MP3 audio guide of the Paths, available in Italian and English.
