For friends of Veja Adventure Park who love mountain trails today we are talking about an interesting walk, in the mountains of the Lessinia National Park.
A two-minute walk from the park you will find the Ponte di Veja , over which the Italian section of a fascinating route passes: it is the European Path E5 which unravels from the Atlantic coast in Brittany (France) crosses the Alps passing through Switzerland, Germany and Austria, reaching Italy and ending, according to the project, in Venice.
Let’s see a brief description.
“The total distance is approximately 3200 km.
Currently the Verona-Venice section is not defined, so the path ends at the Verona Arena.
The most commonly traveled part is the one that reaches Verona from Lake Constance: a distance of 600 km for which an average of 30 days are required for a good walker.
This section was defined by Hans Schmidt of Sonthofen and built by interconnecting existing paths by the European Hikers’ Federation which inaugurated it, precisely in Constance, on July 2, 1972.
Although the trail also crosses rocky areas with high peaks, no climbing experience is required.
Along the way there are various possibilities for shelter and overnight stay typically in mountain huts. ”
