WALKING | LA STRADA DEI SIORI | SELVA DI CADORE | DOLOMITES UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site
The departure of this charming itinerary is located on the stairway which starts from Via IV Novembre, just near the Public Museum of the Fiorentina Valley Vittorino Cazzetta; follow this path until you reach the ancient hamlets of Rova, Zambelli, Zanata and Zardini, where you can admire the ancient houses and barns with beautiful woodcarvings, witnesses of the past rural life. From here the path becomes a dirt road, and turns towards west meeting the State Road of the Passo Giau. Go down this way for 500 m, then you will meet a narrow road taking to the panoramic v., surrounded by flowering meadows. At the end of the paved road, next to the last house, there are two paths: on the right upwards there’s the historic trail “Strada de la Vena” and on the left downwards the “Strada dei Siori” which, crossing a nice wood, goes down to the village of Codalonga. After crossing the namesake brook, which once was the border line between Tyrol and the Republic of Venice and then between Austria and Italy, go on for few hundred meters up to the village of Selva di Cadore.
