Here the path gets almost flat until you find some houses, once named "Careteo" and "Gambeara" by the families who lived there until the 1950s - 1960s.
Going right downhill between the houses, the path would lead to the main road that goes from Bastia up to Rovolon, yet we continue leftwards going uphill.
Here the path gently inclines for less than 100 meters, keep walking rightwards following the path. The top of the hill on your left is nicknamed
"Castaroto", probably this name derives from the fact that in the past there was a castle or a watch tower at this summit.
Continuing on the path you can see on the right an interesting example of a rural house with buttresses, after that you will come to the
mainroad that leads from Rovolon down to Montemerlo. Turn right and walk uphill for about 50 meters. On the left, take another small uphill road, via Spinazzola. Here you will see Villa Egizia standing on the right. After few steps, turn left onto a downhill path in the middle of the vegetation and go up to pianoro Spinazzola (Spinazzola plateau).
The pathwill end at
“Crosara del Capitello”, on a pavedprovincial road thatleads from Rovolon down to Montemerlo. At this point turn left in the direction of Rovolon. Straight after wards turn right onto a small pathgoing downhill in the direction of Bastia: this path leads you to a narrow valley situated on the slopes of Monte Cereo. Walk along the hill for about 500 meterson a down hill path, first dirtthenpaved. On the left you will be rewarded with an excellent view of the “Vallone”(bigvalley) inserted between the foothills of Monte Viale and Monte Spinazzola. This area was once called “Busa de Rusa”, now it has become a biotope named “Valli Toffan”.

Follow the road that runs along side Monte Cereo and keep to the left towards Bastia. After about 200 meters, at the beginning ofprivate residences, you can admire an old farm with aColombaratower (colombarium), certainly the most beautiful in the area, and perhaps in the hills.(2)
Almostat the end of the road, turn left on a smaller street named Don Bordin
, that will lead you to Piazzale Europa, the starting point.

1. Looking to the southfrom left to right you can see: Monte Grande, Monte della Madonna, the town of Rovolon, and partially on the west side the chain of Colli Berici. Here you can find the typical vegetation of the Euganean Hills suchasrobinia, ash, oakand other undergrowth shrubs such as the butcher's broom.

2. A columbarium is a structure intended to house pigeons (colombo in Italian meanspigeon)and contain pigeonholes for the birds to nest. Towers of this kind, although generally more modest and less beautiful, are not uncommon in ancient farms, villas and manor houses in Italy. They are found in the Euganean hills as in many other areas of Italy.
