Time is intended for a trained hiker, it could vary depending on the preparation and the interest for the itinerary features.

The point of departure is by a red house on via Monte Ricco, the tarmac road that goes up the southeast-facing slope, just behind Monselice railway station. A wide, rock-bottomed forest road leads to a panoramic terrace, with a statue of Hercules carrying the world. A stairway on the right, lined with imposing cypresses, goes up to the Franciscan hermitage of St. Domenica, former dwelling of Count Vittorio Cini. In clear weather, it is possible to look south from the terrace as far as the Apennines. There is a crossroads after a few metres: the path on the left goes down to Mt. Castello; the main path, on the right, continues as a loop around the summit of Mt. Ricco, thus shortening the itinerary.
