Winter walk from Vizze to Sasso

This easy winter walking tour in the Val di Vizze leads us from San Giacomo to Sasso.

We start our hike through the snow in San Giacomo in Vizze di Dentro. At the southern edge of the village a bridge crosses the Vizze creek, we follow its course into the valley before we change again to the northern side at the level of the parish church.

Via the “Hintertalweg” path, which proceeds into the valley along the hillside, we walk towards the head of the valley. Below us we have the valley surrounded by the Vizze mountains and the farms of the hamlet of Kinzen. After about an hour we reach the hamlet of Sasso (Stein). We enjoy our lunch in the same-named rustic guesthouse and take the same way back to San Giacomo.
