Stage 7. Ivrea to Viverone


A tranquil route at the foot of the Serra of Ivrea, the largest moraine in Europe – interesting geological formation that indicates the direction.  Along the way we meet two beautiful recently restored churches: San Pietro, in the area of Bollengo, and “il Gesiun”, a ruin in the middle of the countryside, of which only the perimeter walls and the remains of a fresco are left.

A lovely village which stretches along the Piverone road offering spectacular views of Lake Viverone.  Dining in Bollengo, Palazzo Canavese, Piverone, water sources.
