The Canal of the Mills


Mixed path: partly cycle track, partly road (orange track)


Start from the lawn in front of the Rocca (fortress).

Behind the Rocca, on the left-hand side, next to the entrance to a former medical center, take the cycle track leading – through an underpass – to the other side of viale Saffi and carry on along the track, following the Mills Canal.


Continue along via degli Sminatori through the new residential area called Pedagna Est: the track follows the course of the canal which is partly covered but comes back to view in via S.Lucia. From via S.Lucia take via degli Orti and carry on following the course of the canal, now again in full view.

After 4/5 km. the route reaches the suburban residential area of Ponticelli; to make the route shorter, one can go back through the cycle path of via St.Lucia, then via Quarantini and via Tiro a Segno as far as via Pirandello.
