Can recommend stopping at Bar Rinaldi Palmira in Lecchi (at 10.2km). Hot day and we needed a break from the sun. The staff are warm and welcoming. Pay heed to using GPS on this hike. We inadvertently extended our tour because I stopped watching the screen, but recovered. In July bug spray helps, and for a short distance long pants on the forest trail helps with the nettles. We startled six roe deer in the deeper forest. Sat by beautiful stream in the shade and ate our packed lunch at 7.6km. The winery around Castillo di Meleto was full of vineyard workers.
