The Via dell’Acqua is an easy route through the Treviso Pre-Alps, specifically in Cison di Valmarino, one of Italy’s most beautiful villages.
It’s a route you can do in a day, also suitable for families with children, and starts just above the central Piazza Roma. You will walk with the melodious background of the water of the Rujo stream and you will be catapulted into what was, until the early 1900s, the artisanal reality of Cison. Among waterfalls, woods and meadows you will encounter old wash houses, fountains, gutters, old mills and other magical creatures carved in wood by the mastery of local artists. During this short trail you will find explanatory signs telling about ancient economic activities such as wool processing and grain milling. The trail ends at the entrance to the “Bosco delle Penne Mozze,” a memorial to all the fallen Alpine soldiers born in the province of Treviso.
