Embark on the final stage of the Alta Via 1, walking from Rifugio Fontana to La Pissa bus stop.

Descend the twisting mountain track back into civilisation, find time to reflect on the incredible vistas, wonderful food and wine, and unique characters you’ll have met along the Alta Via 1. The final stage of the walk is on routes 514 and 518 to Rifugio Bianchet (1245 m), through woodland before joining route 503 to meet the road at La Pissa, from where you can take a bus (30 mins) to Belluno. 

Sadly there is no sign that this is the end of the Alta Via 1, except the bus stop that you’ll clearly see when you descend onto the road (it is close to La Pissa). However, you’ll be able to collect your pin at the tourist office in Belluno and celebrate this evening!

when you reach the 503 turn off marked with a sign—Autobus, you will find the trail heavily damaged by erosion and downed trees. there are no markings song the last bit of route to encourage you. this decent is steep, but it does eventually dump you out on the road. Turn right to walk to to the bus stop — be very careful of traffic
