Hiking in the Mountains

Highland of Asiago: hiking in the mountains

For hiking and excursion enthusiasts, Asiago is a perfect starting point if you wish to visit historical and cultural places with breathtaking landscapes. The staff of Hotel Erica knows perfectly well each corner of this land and is glad to provide information about the most interesting areas, away from the usual tourist circuits.
During your holiday at Hotel Erica in Asiago, you can choose the excursion in the Highland that suits you most. If you are into wild nature, do not miss the highland of Piana della Marcésina (which stretches across the territories of Enego, Foza, Asiago, Gallio and Grigno); this land is dotted with rare plants with a unique charm.
In your hiking programme in the Highland of Asiago, you should include:

  • Mount Zebio with the open air Museum of trenches
  • Mount Cengio with trenches, galleries, artillery posts and the leap of the Grenadiers
  • Sacred top of Mount Ortigara: scene of many battles between Italians and Austrians, where a round cut column was placed in 1920 by the Alpine Troops, during their first gathering, in memory of the fallen soldiers
  • Stonhaus chasm: the ogre’s home at Mount Erio in Roana, one of the magic places of the Highland of Asiago, mentioned in the Cimbrian legends
  • Calà del Sasso: the longest staircase in Italy, which joins together Sasso di Asiago (Highland of the 7 Municipalities) with the province of Vicenza by means of 4444 steps
