Transfer to the Stevani district for lunch at a farmhouse, famous for the production of honey, jams and marmalades, which can be purchased in the shop near the restaurant.
The day ends with the Morbellian route: Angelo Morbelli was one of the greatest exponents of Italian Divisionism. Through a pleasant walk through the hills you will follow an extraordinary route thanks to the panels positioned in the places he reproduced in his works.
