Stage 10. Vercelli to Robbio

  "The first section of this stage follows the Sesia riverbank, surrounded by poplar trees and rice fields.

From Palestro the path runs along the narrow embankments separating the flooded fields. In the proximity of Robbio, it carries on along the verge of a suburban road with little traffic.

Extra care should be taken leaving Vercelli, where the route must necessarily follow the verge along a main road, SS11.

In Vercelli and Robbio there are several attractions of historical and architectural interest.Outside urban centres it is not possible to access water sources."
