Stage 6. Pont-Saint-Martin to Ivrea

 
Upon entering Piedmont the landscape softens, the slopes and gradients become less challenging.  The route alternates between villages to pleasant paths surrounded by nature.

 A must see is the complex of
San Lorenzo, the hamlet of Montestrutto and the Montalto Castle. Also not to be missed is a visit to the historical centre of Ivrea.
Dining in Carema, Settimo Vittone (off track) Borgofranco, Montalto, numerous water sources.
