Overview

For centuries, this road was the main link between Garda and Nago.It takes its name from a small shrine dedicated to Saint Lucy. A bronze plaque commemorates a daring undertaking by the Venetians in 1439: sailing up the River Adige to Ravazzone, they then transported large galleys and a number of small boats via the land route and then down the steep path to Torbole, where they were moored again to face the Visconti fleet in battle. It is a lovely stroll among the olive trees and there is a marvellous view of Lake Garda.

A steep climb from Torbole up to the castle, but if you go from Nago, you hike up a short distance, then down to Torbole. BEAUTIFUL view from the castle which is a ruin but good historical descriptions along the way in English as well...More

We followed this Roman Road through the olive groves, which was once the only link between the Alto Adige, Garda and the Po valley. It is wonderful to think whose feet have trodden on these cobbles! Saint Vigilio (4th Century) kings and armies, all on...More

Usual advice applies - you need water when walking up this in heat and good footwear. The first time we walked up from Torbole we used the main road - this is much better as there is no traffic and plenty of places to stop...More

Make sure you wear good shoes and take a camera. It is steep and cobbled. The usual advice applies have water with you and take care. Not for the unfit or faint hearted

Hard work going down, especially on a hot day, and only for triathlon nutters coming up. This is fantastic, but the terrain is very rugged.

Without doubt, the prettiest walk from Nago to the lakeside town of Torbole. Known as the Santa Lucia, it is much more than a method of getting from one part of ths beautiful area to another. It is an attraction in its own right, and...More
