4.6
#15 of 42 in Outdoors in Province of Vicenza
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 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.

  • Challenging course, we make every year and since we start already on the plateau we do first downhill and then uphill, requires minimal physical form (depends also on the pace that we want to keep) and having regard to the risk of slipping (wet rocks and Moss in the most shaded) are from chopsticks! If you are in the area to keep an eye out, you won't regret it!
