The Calà del Sasso is a path leading down from the village of Sasso di Asiago towards the town of Valstagna in Italy. It has 4444 steps, is 7km long, and is the longest staircase in Italy as well as the world's longest staircase open to the public. The highest and lowest points on the path differ by 744 m. Next to the staircase runs a gully. Both gully and steps are paved in limestone. The gully was used to transport timber from Sasso downhill. Once in Valstagna, Calà del sasso ends near the river Brenta, where the logs were floated to Venice where they were used in the Arsenale for the construction of boats.

  • A walk definitely challenging for 750 meters in altitude and the trail rather difficult, sometimes slippery and often extremely steep. But it is also very impressive, especially when you consider its history, as it has very ancient origins and follow it thinking about how many before us have done so out of necessity and not a hobbyist does reflect on the labors of our ancestors and how we make assumptions about the n Ostra comfortable life! The Woods Cross is lovely, enriched by some wooden sculpture, from capitals and crucifixes. We trail before descending, the effort around his knees, and then uphill, and the effort is of breath, in about 3 hours total. At the start there are some gazebos for picnics and a small parking lot.

  • A hike suitable for adults and children ... Yes can appreciate various sculptures in wood, small caves and of course l surroundings ... leaves a little to be desired finish where the landscape does not meet the effort made

  • This is a characteristic path, allowing you to stay completely immersed in nature. The path itself is not too high to trouble who is trained, although in some places the slope is quite high (it goes from 250 m to approximately 1000 m 3, the gallium Valstagna 5 km) and on the downhill, the steps are felt. Between round trip, without pausing it takes about 2-3 h, sustained pitch. Only recommendation: pay attention to the steps, which can be slippery due to moisture, but otherwise there are no major risks. Better then to have proper footwear to excursions.
