  • A great ride to go walking or cycling. Also note the lack of maintenance, signage is blurring (a shame not knowing that it species of tree I have forward), and I remember before delivering a booklet that now I had to specifically ask.

  • A stale natural park with a huge variety of trees and plants. In the town of Lussich family currently there is a Museum of trees and tiles. There are trails to explore on foot or by bike. From those viewpoints are can see to great distance, the views are incredible. To it ida the terrain is quite steep, by what there are that go with slippers comfortable, water and even a cane made with a branch helps quite. Every now and then there are benches for rest. Worth the penalty through it.

  • Walking to daily in bike with my children we encounter two times with a poster in the route that said: Arboretum Lussich. Were unaware these names and the meaning of the place. Curiosity led us to ask in the area and reach this magical destination. Beautiful old house full of interesting stories of family history. Walk the forest vastness and reach the tomb is an incredible ride to make especially with kids. Short, interesting ride with free admission. Recommended!
